  5. If this is the first time you've ripped a CD, follow the instructions on the CD Ripping Options screen. (You won't see this screen the next time you rip a CD.)

the 'windows media player' program will burn cds if you have a library of music on the computer. when you open the program it will help you look for music files on your computer, and almost walk you thru the process of burning a cd. you can 'rip' cds (record cds to hardrive of computer), transfer mp3s from a device, or purchase music online with the windows media player also.

You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs ...does this mean.. to burn the cd onto the computer?


Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa

I can not copy an audio CD into my computer!


You can't copy Audio CD's to a hard drive. The .cda format is meant for only CD's. You have to rip them to some other format for a hard drive to recognize (such as .wma or .mp3).

How to rip an Audio CD using Windows Media Player

QUICK RIP
You can do a quick rip if the "AutoPlay" menu comes out when you insert a disk in your computer's DVD/CD drive.

One of the options under AutoPlay is to "Rip Music From CD (using Windows Media Player)" which will automatically launch Windows Media Player and the Rip menu. Make sure you uncheck the "Always do this for Audio CDs" box so your computer doesn't automatically launch the Rip menu every time you insert a CD (i.e. in case you just want to listen to a CD next time).

Start the ripping process by clicking on the "Start Rip" button (e.g. in Windows Media Player 11, for example, it's on the lower right once you're in the Rip menu). You'll also have an option to use your Internet connection and have Windows Media Player automatically find details about the CD you're using so you don't have to fill out album and song details yourself (for this tutorial, let's assume that you're not connected to the Internet, which means you'll end up with an unknown album with unknown songs). You'll know the ripping process is done once all the songs show "Ripped to library" under "Rip status."

By default, Windows Media Player will rip your tunes in WMA format and save it in your "Music" folder. You can access the folder by clicking on the Windows logo at the bottom left of your computer's screen. For Windows XP, for example, it'll be the "Start" button. For Windows Vista or Windows 7, it's the circular icon with the Windows four-panel graphic that looks like a waving flag.
Clicking the "Start" button in Windows XP will bring up a menu box with "My Music" as one of the options. For Vista, clicking on the Windows button will bring up a menu with "Music" as one of your options. Anyway, clicking on either of those choices will open your music folder. Look under Unknown Artist and you should be able to find the Unknown Album you just ripped. Once you find the songs, you can rename them one by one.
To do a normal rip, let's go to the next step.


NORMAL RIP
For more options, like changing your ripped music's format to MP3 or changing the folder where you save your music, you can do a normal rip.

Start by launching Windows Media Player yourself via the "Programs" option by clicking on either the "Start Menu" tab in Windows XP or the Windows logo in Vista or Windows 7 (both at the lower left of your screen). Insert your music CD. (To simplify things, just cancel and close down the "Autoplay" menu in case it shows up.)

Once you're in the Rip menu, click on the Rip tab to bring up a list of options. "Format" lets you pick between Windows Media Audio formats, WAV, and the more popular MP3 format. The WMA and WAV both have "lossless" format options, which means the music will be ripped with no loss in quality. The MP3 format, meanwhile, offers wider compatibility with portable music players and smaller file sizes but sacrifices a certain amount of quality depending on the bit rate of your file. This brings us to the "Bit Rate" button, which basically lets you pick the quality of the rip. The default for bit rate is 128 Kbps. Note that the higher the bit rate you pick, the better the quality you'll get, but you'll also get a larger file size.

========this worked for me and should work for you too, please let me know if it helps========

CD drive functions lost.


While it sounds like the drive is failed you can try this:

power down system
eject the physical drive from the chassis (there should be a lock release on the back of laptop)
slide the drive back into the chassis
power on the laptop

After windows starts up - go to my computer and see if the drive is present.

Keep me posted - we can try something else a little more intense

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.

Cds


Music CDs that are stamped by the factory have a format that Windows does not normally recognize, except thru Media player, or other aware programs. That music format is CDA. You need a CD ripper program to convert the CDA file to something Windows does recognize, like MP3 or WAV, then copy the files to your USB drive. Programs that rip CD music to files are UltraISO, Media Player 10, Nero, etc.. Here's one link to using Media Player to rip your CDs. http://portables.about.com/od/mp3players/ht/howtoripCDWMP10.htm This should get you started. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
