Another day sorting windows 7out, can't find rip on media player for my music and media centre won't do anything as each time l start it comes up with invalid. This laptop is very near to going back to tesco, had two weeks of stress, give me back vista and peace.
Don't give up - W7 is much better!! I use iTunes for ripping, but I opened Windows media Player for the first time today. I clicked on Organise, then Options, then on the Rip Music tab. ... Come back if it does not work.
When l saw the word options l thought thats the word as microsoft was saying that and l bounced over and options is not there, l had looked there before in fact have looked everywhere but was so disapointed this time. I tried over and over but there was only four things not greyed out but options or rip wasn't there. Have had this l/top 3 weeks and its been one problem after another, only got pictures and color yesterday. But thanks for the help
Sorry, but please mention each step.1 Start,2 All Programmes, 3 Left click Windows Media Player. Does it launch? If so accept reccomended settings in box that opens. Then in menu bar of WMP left click on Organise. Then in drop down box left click Options, then click on Rip Music.Could you say what happens at each stage of the above?
Thanks for getting back and thanks for links. John l do it exactly how you said but l noiced one thing different. I have only had the box come up the first time l put a cd in the laptop. That got me to rip 3 cds as clicked it in the box. Went to do somehing else came back and had lost box and rip, Jade
Have found rip, what l was doing before was clicking on music from start and that page has organize but no options or rip when you open it. This time l clicked media player and straight away it was there. With not getting the small box coming up and asking what l wanted to do, except for the first time it threw me. Thanks to you all for helping me. Have saved all the links as well. Dare l ask you something else. I saved all my pictures on a memory stick and they were all in groups, my paintings and family ones but since l loaded them onto this laptop there all mixed up which looks terrible and you have to search through all the dates, have been told that you can't drag but there must be away of sorting them out.
