How to Backup a CD to Windows Media Player
In this guide I will show you just how easy it is to backup a CD to Windows Media Player.
A quick side note before we start...
The biggest problem I see so many Windows Media Player users face when backing up a CD is identifying where they stored the music file.
Whilst this doesn't matter for those who continue to use Windows Media Player, if you decide to use an alternative piece of media software you will want to know where your music files are stored on your computer.
So below is the guide you will need to use to help you get started on backing up a CD to Windows Media Player.
Step by Step Guide
Get your CD and place it into the CD/DVD Drive in your computer
Load up Windows Media Player and click on the Rip Tab
Once in the "Rip" Tab, you will see the CD you have just loaded, there will be numerous information about the CD such as Artist and Song Title.
But in this step you will need to select the tracks you wish to copy by unselecting the ticks for the ones you don't want these ticks are next to each song title on the left hand side. If you want the whole CD you don't need to do anything in this step.
Once you have selected the tracks you want,you will want to click the "Start Rip" Button located in the bottom right hand corner of the screen
Your CD will now be copied into the Windows Media Player Library
To verify your CD has been correctly copied, pop into the "Library" tab, search for your CD title and if the item appears you have been successful, if not go back to the beginning of this how-to and see if you have followed each step correctly!
