How To Rip Audio CD and Convert Songs Into MP3 files?

The time has come to finally organize my old Music CDs and listen to the songs that I have not heard for a while... Since nowadays Mp3 files almost completely replaced good old Music CDs I decided to transfer some of the songs (legally) directly from a CD into my PC but I was not sure exactly how to do that? Believe it or not you do not need to download any specific software in order to make it because everything you need come together with a Windows Media Player. Concretely I own Windows 7, and version of my Windows Media Player is 12. First thing that you should do is to put Music CD to CD-Rom (be aware of copyright & legal issues).

Step 1 : When you insert your Music CD into the computer CD-Rom, Windows Media Player should automatically start with playing music. In the top of the right screen angle click on button "Switch to Library" because we first need to set the quality and file type with options (read next steps). Wait till the new Windows Library screen appears...

Step 2 : If Windows Library screen is now open you should be able to see the list of all songs which you have on inserted Music CD. Click on the button Organize (in the top left angle of the screen), then make a left click on card Options...

Step 3 : From all cards in the Options screen for us the most important is card Rip Music where you can choose file type and quality for your grabbed music files. Click on the card Rip Music and then choose file type and quality (in our case that will best quality Mp3 file). When you are sure about settings that you just made press OK button.

Step 4 : Now from Windows Library screen choose the tracks that you want to convert into Mp3 file by checking and uncheck small box next to them. When you are ready press Rip CD button and Music CD will start converting all selected songs (this process can take some time). Ripped songs are usually positioned in My Music folder but it depend on your system.
