    Do you mean to say you want to rip CD's to HD? :?:
    You want to SEE the files? Now thats another confusing thing? What is the meaning of seeing the files?
    What do you mean by "scanned by WMP"? do you mean "Played by WMP"?

    well ill take first shot. If you mean copied to hdd using WMP ya should find the in C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name"\My Documents\My Music in WinXP, or more simply in the My Music Folder of My Documents. If you want to copy without going through WMP you can just go to My Computer and click the CD drive its in and you can highlight all the files and right click and click copy, then make a file on your hdd and right click the blank space and click paste. Or in WinXP you can highlight them all and click Copy Selected Items and put them in your preferred directory. I hope this is what you was reffering too

    amd_man had the right idea with where files are stored.

    Audio tracks are stored as actual data tracks on a CD, not actually as 'files'. When you put the CD in the drive, or open it up in WMP, it may come up as trackXX.cda, but in truth that isn't really the song itself.

    So, to get them onto your hard drive, you need to use software to 'rip' them. WMP does this, but a lot of other programs do it as well. But, this means you can't simply copy the files from the CD to your HDD.

    i don't think that is possible dude. the only thing you will get a shortcut to the track on CD, and when the CD is not in CD-ROM drive then i wonder how you will play the songs.

    As beefy said you gotta use a software to rip those tracks from CD to HD.

    Nero for CD ripping. :?: kewl...never tried it but will give it a shot pretty soon! :thumb:

    Cheers for all the info! Alas Amd_ i have tried doing the old copy and paste of the CD to HDD and it does indeed create a shortcut to the "file" which cannot be played without the cd bein in like beefy and asklepios said (sos rugby i don't have a partitioned harddrive). However im gonna check in My music to see if WMP has shoved them in there! I have nero and the thought never occured to me to use that and it makes a lotta sense cheers C_Deck! Ill report back to say what happens prob later today.

    Heres a few more questions:

    Rugby - whats WTF?

    ta ta :afro:
