Windows 7: How to copy music cd playable with any cd player?

How to copy music cd playable with any cd player?

Hello,
I have Win 7 Ultimate x64.
I have 2x dvd drives[A DVD ROM & Another DVD+/-RW]. How could I put a music cd [This is I would call the original bought from a shop] in my DVD ROM and put in a blank CD-R in my DVD +/-RW drive and then ?rip or ?burn music to this blank cd that becomes playable in any cd player-such as in the car or in any free standing cd players. I do not want music being first transferred to my music library of my computer HD.
In WMP under "more options" I selected to rip the music to-my DVD+/-RW drive [DRIVE E]. I put in the music original CD I bought in my DVD ROM [Drive D] So that music could be directly ripped from Drive D to Drive E without music files being first transferred to my music folder in my HD. I want to create a copy of my music playable in any cd player without any music being copied to my computer HD.
Now I choose to rip the music and the music got copied[ripped] from DVD ROM [D] drive to DVD +/_RW [E] drive without my music files being transferred [copied] to my HD. This happened to my liking but When I tried to ----
play the CD created in a freestanding cd player or the car cd player the music is not playable! But it did play music in my computer alright.

Then I did the same technique of ripping [from Drive D to Drive E] in MP3 format . I still could not play back the cd music created on a freestanding cd player. It is playable in my computer ok.

Do I need another program such a "Nero", "Roxio", or "Image Burn" to create music cd using Drive D to Drive E [without first copying to my music library in my HD], and that could be played in my car cd player or other free standing CD players?

Regards

Now I choose to rip the music and the music is copied from one DVD drive to RW DVD drive without my music files being transferred to my HD. This is what I want to do. I do not want it to be ripped to my HD.

However the CD created with the copied file play back music on my computer alright but when I put the newly created cd in a freestanding cd player the music is not playable!

I did select to record as non protected with regard to copy right.
I also copied in MP3 format and still could not play back musics on a freestanding cd player.

You're burning the MP3 files themselves to the CD. CDs use raw data, not MP3 files (although MP3-CD players can read these). You need to burn the CD with either the "Burn" tab of Windows Media Player or any "Audio CD" option of burning software. In iTunes, you make a playlist, then select Burn. In CDBurnerXP, you use the "Audio CD" option.

Hello Product FRED,
Thank you for your assistance.

"You need to burn the CD with either the "Burn" tab of Windows Media Player or any "Audio CD" option of burning software"

If I to do "Burn" under Windows Media Player, I will first have to copy the music files from my original music cd to the HD. I do not wish for my music copied to my HD. I would wish to copy the music from my music cd to another clean cd directly and that newly created cd playable in any free standing music player such as in my car or in my home cd player. Is that possible in your opinion?

Thanking you

So help me to understand. You have an original music CD. You want to make an exact copy of it, but you want to be able to play it in any CD player. I'm assuming the original CD only works on the computer. If you go into My Computer -> [Original CD], what do you see?

Depending on what kind of CD it is, you might have to copy files to your computer first. If it's just a bunch of MP3 files, you need to copy them to your computer and follow my previous instructions.

Hi
Let me explain:
I have bought this music cd from a shop. It is a music cd [Music cd by Simply Red Songs of love]. This I call the original music cd. Now my wife wants a copy of this music cd that she could play in her car cd and at work in a freestanding cd player-not a computer.
I have no problem in playing the music tracks from this original cd on my both computer dvd drives in my WMP.

I wish to copy these music track to another R CD so that the newly created cd can be used by my wife in her car and at work free standing cd player-not on a computer.

While I perform this copying using the WMP, If possible I would wish to avoid the tracks being first copied to my computer HD. Because I have x2 DVD drive [One DVD ROM & another DVD+-RW], I want to know as to how can I put my original music cd in my DVD ROM and copy the music tracks to a cd in my DVD+-RW under WMP that is playable in any cd player.

I was able to do that in Roxio under VISTA in the past. Since I have done win 7 custom install I lost my Roxio!!

Thanking you for your advice and help to understand

Regards

I use CD burner XP with windows 7 and it works perfectly, I think it creates an image file when copying but that's just temporary

Yes, CDBurner XP is great. But what I'm not understanding is why it only works on a computer if it's an original CD you've bought in a shop. If it's just me misunderstanding and all you want is two copies, copy with CDBurner XP.

Hi Product FRED,
The original CD that bought in a shop plays in all mechines-computer,car,& freestanding cd player-ok. There is no problem.

It is the cd where the music files had been copied to [this newly created non-propritary home copied cd] , only works in my computer but not in my car CD player or the free standing cd player.

Since I have two drives in my computer[one DVD ROM & another DVD +-RW, I in WMP, Under more options choose the music to rip directly from DVD ROM to DVD +-RW. The cd created this way, I found out, only playable in the computer and not in any free standing cd player or car cd player.
I wish to know if I can copy music in the above mentioned method and the cd created would become playable in any player?


On another note: From where could I get CDBurner XP? Is it part of Win 7 x64?

I am from UK. This would explain as to why in me not replying earlier.
Regards

theres a hot link >> in my post << to CDBurner XP and it's a free download

regards your unsuccessful burns something I found with burning MP3's to audio discs for "domestic cd players" is sometimes the bitrate can cause problems, I tend to convert to wav then burn them to audio

Google is your friend

You shouldn't have to install 3rd party software.

Media player will do what your asking.
