Unable to Rip CD Tracks using ripping program

  ponytail 16:03 04 Feb 2019

I am ripping some tracks from my CDs to put onto memory sticks to play in the car.The program I use is FreeRIP MP3 Converter but there are a couple of problems.Some CDs when I put them into the CD Writer and press rip CD nothing happens the tracks are listed but does not rip.I then put the CD into my external CD writer but it does not give me a list of the tracks but it will play the disc.Is it possible to copy CD tracks to a memory stick rather than rip them.

Could be a case of DRM stopping things. Are the CDs affected from Sony music by any chance?

You could copy CDDA from the CD to the memory stick but the unit in your car might not play them back from the USB port only MP3s, WMA, etc.

Hi Menzie Would you know why when I try to rip tracks from my CDS I am unable to do it using my external CD writer although I can play any CD which is in that writer.When I try to rip anything instead of getting a list of the tracks on the CD where the tracks are listed is just blank yet I can play them.

Hi ponytail I put my cd's onto a stick for the car , I copy everything even DRM protected discs using a freebie called CDBurnerXP , scroll down t'c and c's to untick boxes to avoid any unwanted bit such as extra bowsers or trial av..... trust me it works. Once in a temporary folder you can use the left panel choose where they get ripped to.

I second CD Burner XP, I've used it exclusively on my PC after switching from Nero.

It should rip the CDs for you.

iTunes can also rip CD’s to MP3 format. I use it and copy tracks to a USB which play in the car , and they show by song, artist, etc

Hi ponytail , it looks like part of the interface has altered , once you have the album in the listing ready to burn you should be able to choose where to burn but the flip down tab now only shows dvd drive , they must have changed it.

I usually rip my cd's with media player then once they have got stored into "my music" I right click and send to pen.

Obviously I have media player on here but have never used it what is the procedure to get the music tracks onto a memory stick.

hi ponytail , once you have ripped music with media player they go into a my music folder , click my pc then down the side look for music , click on it and you will see all the albums you have on your pc , now just right the ablum you want to put on your pen and choose send to ……….. pen name
