Solved Can't rip songs off CD media using W7 windows media player

April 9, 2012 at 16:40:54
Specs: Windows 7

I burned a disk of various songs with Windows Media Player, and then removed the songs from the computer. I would now like to put those songs BACK on my computer (using Windows Media Player) so I could put some on my mp3 player. However, when I open Windows Media Player and put the disk in the drive, I am not given the option to rip the songs. That option just doesn't appear. Oddly enough, a list of the songs on the disk appears on the right in the "list" area so the disk is being read. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

✔ Best Answer

What format are the songs on the CD in? It follows that all you need to do is COPY the tracks back to the hard-drive.

If the songs on the CD are playing, maybe it is a copy protection thing. When you recorded the songs on the CD, you copy-protected them. Just an idea.

Copying the songs back to the hard drive worked and they are now showing up in Windows Media Player. Thanks!
