See if this helps:

C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the track
Windows Media Player cannot rip (copy) the track from the CD because a problem occurred while encoding (converting) the file into MP3 format.

You might encounter this error message if an MP3 encoder is installed on your computer, but the corresponding key in the Windows registry is not set correctly.

In certain circumstances, the registry key value might not be valid if you used Windows Media Player 9 Series to rip CD tracks into MP3 format, and then you upgraded to Windows Media Player 10 later. To resolve the problem, do one of the following:

    * Change the audio quality setting for ripping CDs. This option is the easiest to perform. However, it will not enable you to rip CD tracks into MP3 files that have an audio quality setting of 128 kilobits per second (Kbps).
    * Delete the value of the LowRateSample registry key. This option is more complex to perform. However, it will enable you to rip tracks into 128-Kbps MP3 files.

To change the audio quality setting for ripping CDs

  1. In Windows Media Player 10, right-click the title bar, point to Tools, and then click Options.
  2. Click the Rip Music tab, and then move the Audio quality slider to any setting other than 128 Kbps.

To delete the value of the LowRateSample registry key
Warning:  Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. At the very least, you should back up any valued data on the computer before making changes to the registry. For information about backing up and restoring the registry, see Windows Help.

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open text box, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. In Registry Editor, find the following registry key:
  4. Double-click the key, and then, in Value data, delete the value that is displayed.
  5. Click OK, and then close Registry Editor.
