You need a program that will rip cds. Ripping is the process of copying the songs off of a cd and onto your computer. There are several ripping programs that are free. Most you must pay for. The free ones usually come bundled with other software that you may not want. Google can be your friend in this situation, in terms of finding a ripping program for you.

Allo Slayer :thumbsup:
To copy the files from your CD to your PC's hard drive, repeat what you've tried, but when dragging the files across to the folder, hold down the CTRL ky at the same time :flowers: ...

Drag+CTRL will copy files, drag+Shift will move the files (copy to the new folder then delete the old files)...

Simple really :trumpet: ...

A truly excellent free audio ripping tool is AudioGrabber. Its purpose is to rip audio tracks from an audio cd and optionally convert them to MP3 audio file format. You will not need to convert them, I think, and will just leave them in the WAV audio file format. Do you know what to do with the ripped WAV files after that ?

Open the CD folder by going to My Computer from the Start Button, select all the files, copy them. Move to the folder you wish to put them in (or make one on your C: drive), then paste them.

Tips:

Select all files by going to the folder they are in and then pressing the key combination ctrl+a.

Copy the files that are highlighted by pressing the key combination ctrl+c.

You can open two instances of Windows Explorer at one time, size them so that you can see both of them, click on one of them before you copy, click on the other before you paste. Open Windows Explorer with the key combination Windows key + e.

Paste the files by pressing the key combination ctrl+v.
