AudioGrabber will do it for you; click here - free and easy.

Do a search on google for CD Ripping and you will get lots of suggestions.

Save as MP3 format for smallest size.

DbPowerAmp is also a good program for converting.

i put all my cd's on media player. it is very good for that but it does take a lot of space up.

and you don't have a lot of disc space you should/could save the music files as wma files rather than mp3. wma files are about one third of the size of mp3s (depending on the quality setting you choose). I have saved my music as wma files at near cd quality, I can't tell the difference in quality from the original.

I use nero 5.5 with the file converter plug in, I find it to be a great prog.

Hope this helps.

Cheers Lixdexik.

But after being saved how to make play them?...The c.d. player have option only to play directly from c.d.....Where are the options to make it play from HARD DRIVE?

Winamp too has a very good cd ripper plus access to loads of cd quality internet radio and internet tv (mostly music video's)

Winamp, as suggested by anon1 will play all the music in a particular folder, drive or whatever. It is small and light, and works very well. All that you should need is the "lite" version from click here
