When playing an audio CD I get a continuous popping noise behind the music. If I save the same tracks to the hard drive from the same player then play them back from the hard drive using the same speakers there is no popping noise. I don't want to load a lot of music onto the hard drive, just listen to an occasional CD while I am working.

This could be the vibrations you're picking up from the CD unit spinning as it plays the CDs. If the problem was with actually playing the CDs, the popping noise would be present when you ripped them to the hard drive. It is possible that your speakers are picking up on the vibrations and converts them into little popping noises, or you're hearing them when the music plays.
