CD won’t rip in Windows media player 12
  

Few days before, only I have updated my operating system to windows 7. I have also installed windows media player 12 on my system. My system was working fine but the problem arises when I want to rip the CD. When I want to rip the CD I insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive and after inserting CD into the drive when I start the media player and try to rip then I face problem. I need a solution to troubleshoot this problem so that I can successfully rip the CD.

You need to check the drivers installed for CD-ROM /DVD-ROM in your system. If you system is not having the latest driver for CD-ROM /DVD-ROM then you might face problem in ripping the CD. You need to download; install latest drivers and the problem will be resolved. To install the driver you need to go to control panel from the start menu and then choose device manager. You need to click on the “+” sign next to "DVD/CD-ROM Drives. You can then select the drive and the select update.

VCD is similar to DVD which has both audio and video. The steps to convert VCD to CD are given below:
  • You need to start the system and open the CD-ROM /DVD-ROM. Insert the VCD into the CD-ROM /DVD-ROM drive which you want to convert into CD and then close the tray.
  • You need to open windows media player after inserting VCD into the CD-ROM /DVD-ROM.
  • Now you need to click on the “Rip CD button” to copy files from VCD to computer. After copying the files you will get message such as “Ripped to Library”.
  • Now you need to remove the VCD and then insert the blank CD into the tray.
  • Launch media player and then click on “burn” button. Now you need to select video which you have copied from the VCD.
  • Click on start button so that the files could be burnt to the CD.
