Has Microsoft tightened down Media Player to the point you cant even rip your own audio cds? Microsoft did change some things in Media Player 11 to help stop music piracy. The one I know about is before version 11, you used to be able to back up your license from legal music downloads. Now with version 11, you can no longer do that. If you need to make your music work again for whatever reason, you have to contact the place you bought your music downloads to get them to work. I am talking about places that required Media Player to be installed, not Itunes.
What does this have to do with ripping a audio cd? Believe it or not it is not legal even if you bought the audio cd. Dont harp on me, I didnt make the law. So I wonder, Did Microsoft do something to stop that as well. I dont have an audio cd to try it out.
A few weeks ago, I ripped a CD to my computer using WMP11 and I was able to move the ripped CD files from the WMP Library to a Playlist so that I could burn the files to a blank disc. Well, a few weeks later, I noticed that the CD files of that particular album were no longer in my WMP Library, therefore, I attempted to ripp the CD to my computer again using WMP11, however, I walked out of the room during the ripping process, but when I came back to my compuer, the CD files had NOT been ripped to my computer. I thought that maybe I had did something wrong, so I tried repeating the ripping process for about two more times and I still came up with nothing. At that point, I gave up and opened up iTunes and ripped and burned the CD through iTunes. Does anyone have any idea as to what the problem may have been with my WMP11?
