What is CD Ripping?

    CD ripping is the process of copying or extracting data from a CD to a computer. Commonly used to rip audio files from CD and convert them to WMA, WAV, MP3 & many more, storing them as digital data on your PC's hard disk. CD/DVD ripping can be used to rip video files such as from DVD, a DVD has both video and audio on it with a special format suitable for playback. But it can also be placed into a computer and copied onto a hard drive. This requires using special software and the process is called "ripping". Despite what the name implies, the DVD is not damaged in any way.

If you have a large music CD collection, we suggest you rip all of them for digital backup.
