    Does anyone know how I can take music from a CD and have it play on my desktop, behind the walpaper. NOT to be confused with playing a CD in the rom drive. My OS is Win 98se. Thanks Dave.

    Do the files HAVE to be converted to MP3's?
    I also have an opinion about Winamp.
    I think I'll wait to see what other responces are forthcoming. Thanks. Dave.

    No, the files don't have to be converted to MP3s. If they're not converted, the files will take up about 650MB of hard drive space. If the're converted to MP3s, they'll take up about 50MB of hard drive space.

    Copy the contents of the CD to your hard drive. Then play the songs.

    MoneyPit,
    I have Music Match Juke Box. If I record a CD, the tracks are all MP3's. I can then convert them to Wav if I like. However, I don't know if that imporves the quality of the sound. Once compressed I don't know if the missing pieces are there to be put back.



    Writing a html document and then adding it to the list is how to do it. The problem is that even if you write it to have the player be invisible, a white block will show on the desktop.
    You would have to also include an img line and point to your Wallpaper. This will make the Wallpaper apear in the top left.
    You can change that to the top Center or right. And there will also be a color thing going on. To change to another color add a background color line inside the body tag. The thing I cannot do is play more than one song. However, there may be a script somewhere for that. I am not experienced enough to help you there.

    EDIT: I agree with Techchick. Make a playlist and let it play in the background while you work.
