Hi there

I'm new to this, am having problems ripping music from cds to wmp 11
library, when I input a cd (I have ripping options set to auto when inserting
cd) nothing happens, I hear a bit of whirring from the drive but it then ends
and stops and nothing happens.

However I then went into More options withing the rip menu then went into
devices tab and selected the properties of the drive I am using I ensured
that both playback and rip settings were the same (they were) however I also
clicked for both settings use error correction and it seem to work however
extremely slowly (when I say extremely I mean for one song to be 10% ripped
it took approx 15 mins).

After a few days of trying to problem solve my cd will simply not play or rip, so cant even clean the optical lens. 8-)

I would just love some advice. Many thanks

Not the answer you are looking for I'm sure, but I use a small program called CDEX to rip audio tracks. It's a free, OpenSource program that works very well. It knows nothing about Media Player though.

There is a lot of information available on the Web for WMP 11 ripping CDs. See this Google search: http://www.google.co...amp;btnG=Search
