    I asked in Off Topic with no luck..
    Im hoping someone here may have an answer for me..

    I have 2 cd's that I grabbed from a friend with intentions of burning them..
    I want to take the music files and load them onto my hard drive, then burn the 2 cd's onto 1 cd.

    The problem is, both CD's that I got from him are interactive (they have some videos on them).. When I open the cd's, it doesnt show me the music files... Just the videos and interactive crap...

    How can I get the music files and load them onto my drive?

    a) You don't want to copy the files onto your drive anyway, they'll be HUGE.
    b) Download a CD ripping program that will rip the music on the CD into MP3 format then burn them from the MP3's. This will be easier. I don't use Windows, so I can't suggest any Windows ripping software, sorry.

    Thanks.. I'll start looking for some software now.

    Will ripping software work on a copyrighted cd?
    Because thats what I think my problem has been..

    Thanks guys.
    Ripping was just what I needed. I would up using BPS Ripper.

    Just burned the cd. Worked like a charm!
