    I hope I'm putting this in the right spot. :eek:
    This is the first time I tried to rip a music cd. The ripping part seem to go alright. I put them in a mp3 format. My question is, why are the files bigger after they are ripped?
    When I look at properties on the music cd it says the whole music cd is only 18kb.
    But the ripped files are 39.9 mb. What's up with this? :rolleyes: The MP3 are supposed to be smaller. I even tried to copy the music cd to a folder to check the size, but it was the same thing. Plus, they wouldn't play after I took out the music cd out of the cd rom. :confused:
    The music file types are cda.
    What's going on here? :(
