Ripping a CD with Microsoft Windows Media Player 12

To rip a CD to the music libary stored on your system, i.e., to copy the music from the CD to the hard drive on a Windows sytem, using Windows Media Player 12, take the following steps:
  1. Insert the CD in the CD/DVD drive in the system.
  2. Start the Windows Media Player application.
  3. On the left pane of the Windows Media Player window, navigate to the location of the CD/DVD drive, which should be displaying the album as shown below where the album is identified as "unknown album"

  4. Right-click on the CD in the left pane of the window and choose "Rip CD to library. As the CD is "ripped", you should see the status displayed under "Rip status" near the top of the window; status information is also displayed in the lower, right-hand side of the window.

    Windows Media Player Rip Status

    The status under "Rip status" should change to "Ripped to library" at the completion of the rip process.

On a Microsoft Windows 7 system, you should then see the name of the album in your music folder under Libraries\Music or C:\Users\Username\Music\, where Username is the name for the account under which you logged into the system, if you look for it using the Windows Explorer. If the album/artist could not be identified by Windows Media Player, you may see an "Unknown artist" folder with an "Unknown album" folder within it. From the Windows Explorer, you can right-click on the folder names and change them, if you wish.
