Hi, I'm new here.. first post.  I want a high quality CD ripping/burning program to replace Media Player on my Windows 10 system 

 

I want to be able to rip songs from several CD's, SAVE with/on the program similar to the way that Media Player does, and then burn compilation discs, etc. 

 

Any recommenations?  I'm willing to pay for the right program, does not have to be free!

 

Thanks for any help!

freebie - imgburn

great free program for burn multiple different format disc's

 

freebie - audio grabber is a great little program that will ripping audio disc's in any bitrate.  if you rip the .bin or wav that's raw audio with no compression.

if you do mp3's then you'll need to download the lame codec for it.

If the music is ripped then it is stored on your computer as some sort of audio files, track by track.  Ripping isn't creating ISO images of the CDs.

 

Every burn program I know of can create a "mix tape" equivalent on CD.  But you have to have a player that will recognize, say, a collection of MP3 files as tracks, and most modern ones do so with ease.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but WMP will do what you want quickly and fast.  Why don't you want to use it? I use my Windows 7 WMP to copy CD tracks all the time. Side thought: did Windows 10 remove that ability? I have W10 but don't have the time right now to fire it up.

Windows Media Player ships with Windows 10 (though they want you to use Groove Music if Microsoft has their way) and it works just as it always has.  I've been using it for decades now to rip CDs to 320Kbps MP3 files in my Music library.

 

I very seldom burn optical media anymore, period.  The advent of microSD cards that allow me to carry around far more music on my phone, and have it ready to play in the car (or elsewhere), with the absolute minimum of muss and fuss is the reason why.

I'm low tech... I prefer CD's to the stick.  I don't have a smart phone and use my Audiophile components and in my car to listen. I just have never had much luck with media player.. bad copies, skipping, missing music, etc.  Just looking for something better...

The problems you describe are far more likely to originate with your CD/DVD drive than any software.  If you know the lens to be clean then I would consider looking for a replacement, whether internal or external.

Yeah, I tend to agree with Britechguy....sounds like a glitchy DVD drive.

I'm not trying to insult you, I am sure you know how, but here is what I do with WMP and haven't missed yet (this is my canned instruction):

 

To copy, use Windows Media Player to rip off of the ORIGINAL SOURCE, not a copied and pasted list.
>Open WMP screen
>Upper Right corner, click "Burn"
>Drag & drop the files you list in the left part of the window into the "burn list" on the right side of the window. Then click Start Burn.

  WMP will automatically convert to .cda format; it will auto-convert from other file formats when doing the burn process.
The converted/copied files will be auto-saved to the WPM Library as follows:
> open Explore, and at the very top of the menu:
   Libraries\Music\My Music\
Look through all the folders there, probably will be something like "Unknown Album" or some such. Click on it, the ripped files will be in there.

. . . or a CD with a glitch.  I recently tried to duplicate a CD and the same track failed on five (5) different machines at the same stage of processing.  Then I tried to do a rip and the same issue occurred with the same track on two of the machines (I didn't try on the other three).  That tells me that there is something wonky about that CD, and it had not a single scratch on it.

 

Another thing that people need to check is whether or not they even need to care about a conversion to CDA format.  A huge number of CD players, whether for in home use or automotive ones, are perfectly capable of reading and playing MP3 files (most common) and a couple of other formats.  If the format you're using to rip your music is one your player can play a collection of those files, burned to a CD, will play just fine.

yeah I also use WMP to burn disc quick.  and it all sounds good.  maybe your cd player needs cleaned.

 

also could be the quality of your cd-r's your burning to. generic off brand name disc's are terrible.  i've never had issues memorex media or verbatim.

i bought a 100 pack of staples disc once "key word is once" I had more bad burns, or discs that just didn't play right.

Thanks guys.. all good points! I uninstalled and re-installed media player on my Windows 10 system. I was also getting the burn to 99% and then stopping.  I did order some high quality CMC pro discs. I'll give them a try!  Again, thanks to all!
