No, If you look at a music CD in Windows EXplorer each track shows as 1K. Think of this file as more of a place marker or reference to the real file that is embedded in the music CD.

In order to extract the real file you will need some kind of CD ripper software program.

Yes it's possible.

It will depend on the allowed attachment size for you and the person you send it to.

Do you want to send the track as a wav file, an mp3 file, a wav file compress with rarsoft or other?

Do you want that file to automatically play when the person reads the email or do you just want it as an attachment.

File size will be the major issue.

You can virtually send anything by email. But size of the CD tracks are so hugh, that you will not be able to send it across by email.

You need to have that much space (about 70mb) with your mail account and the recepient should also have that much to receive it. Do you have that large mailbox and that much bandwidth allotted to you?

Theoratically it is possible. But it seems very unlikely that you have such hugh mailboxes and bandwidths!!

Nero will do it fine as will the standard windows media player version 7 and above.
If you're stuck how to do it shout here again.

Just save the track in windows media player (version 7 and above) as a .wma file. It'll be nice and small, less than a MB per minute. You attach it to an e-mail as with any other file and any computer with windows will play it as long as you turn off the licencing bit in media player before saving the track.
Average track length say 3 mins will be less than 3MB.

Even after ripping, are you sure the file will be small enough to send via e-mail? EVen if your and receipient's mailbox sizes are 10mb, check the upper limit imposed on the size of the attachment by your service provider.

You can use a file splitter to split the larger file and send one part at a time and combine all at the end.

But this takes a lot of time and effort. Is it worth it? You decide.

I use EAC to rip the audio.

I use Lame with the Razorlame front end to encode to mp3.

If you have any webspace with enough room, it would be easier to temporarily upload the file to your web space and just send the person a link. Then they can download it.
