You can check before you close WMP that they are saved

Re the Ripping problem, for Win7:

To rip music from an audio CD

  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Center.
  2. If Media Center is not in full-screen mode, click the Maximize button a9bd23ff-99f8-42fd-a627-c155b7e87ddd_75.jpg in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. Insert an audio CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer. The CD will start playing automatically.
  4. On the Now Playing screen, click Rip CD. (If you navigated away from the Now Playing screen, you can always return there from the Windows Media Center start screen by scrolling to Music, clicking Music library, clicking Albums, and then clicking the CD you inserted.)
  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.)
  6. In the Rip CD dialog box, click Yes to rip the tracks to your computer. The ripped music files are automatically added to your Music library.
Re the webcam problem, would need more info. Do you know if the laptop has webcam software installed at all?

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.

Copying a CD - How do I go from the DVD player to the hard drive and back to a blank CD? It's a Toshiba L300


Pop your music CD into the drive and open it with Windows Media Player. In Media Player there is an option to "Rip" or "Copy" the CD.

Choose one of those options and copy the CD to the hard drive. After its been ripped you can then select the burn option and copy it to a blank CD.

It's as easy as that, however you cannot do this with DVD's just music CD's.

Please post back if you require anymore advice.

Using dvd drive makes makes sounds

There is nothing wrong with your laptop. If you are copying a cd and trying to play music at the same time, you are pushing the processor power of your laptop or low on memory. When copying a cd it should rip it without sound to your hardrive, so i assume that your are playing music from your hardrive as well as ripping and this model of laptop i think comes standard with a 1.3ghz processor with 512mb of memory, which can easily be drained when ripping or burning.
