Appreciate some assistance.

Is there a way to copy a music track (one song) from a CD, and place it in the PCs hard drive so that the song can be played without using the CD? or, the song can be e-mailed to friends, etc., without any commercial purposes.

hi
You can get a CD ripper, (make a MP3 ) & download it to your harddrive.... but most e-mails will not support a download of that size... they are large... songs changed to MP3's avg a MB per 1 min of song length. I suggest you use ICQ to transfer it or a share folder online... or FTP it . Geocities had a briefcase if you sign up for a webpage that you can upload to as long as its not more than 5 MB's... give your friend the password to it & let them download it from there. Or if you both have Morpheus
( http://www.musiccity.com ) ... they could search for it there & hope you find each others files.

The avg MP3 is 5 MB's though.

Try this one ....... Easy CD Ripper 1.29

I used Music Match to rip to MP3's and it was pretty easy and free.

Thank you for your replies.

So,first use a ripper and convert the CD music to MP3, then load it on the hard drive and take it from there. Sounds simple enough.

Thanks for the links.

On the e-mail issue. Guess that is not the route to go. Will probably burn a CD and place the music on it instead.

Merry Christmas!!

This is a one-step process, not two. When you rip a CD, the files are automatically created on your hard drive.

Thanks for the clarification. Will take a one step process on this stuff anytime!

As you can tell, this is a first. Have not done much with music files, etc.

Merry Christmas!!
