    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.

    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.
