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.

Do I need another program such a "Nero", "Roxio", or "Image Burn" to create music cd that would be playable in my car cd player or other free standing CD players?
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.

I said that in the first post. We're both right, it's just that his explanation was self-conflicting:

Hi Product FRED,
The original CD plays without any problem in a cd player. It is only copied cd fail to play ina cd player.
I have just tried to copy the music tracks from the original cd put in my DVD ROM and selected to Rip to my E drive that has the DVD+-RW : format in MP3 and Audio quality 320kbps.
A copy created in the R cd plays the music on my computer but when I put this R CD in a cd player no music is playable.

My inference is that I can Rip the music from DVD ROM to DVD +-RW without first riping to my HD. However the music copied in such manner is not playable in a freestanding cd player.

I could first rip the music to my HD and then burn to a R CD in WMP and I know that will allow me to play the newly created cd to play in any player other than computer. However my wish is not to rip music to my HD!!

I have in the past utilised Roxio to copy music fro DVD ROM to DVD +-RW and able to play back on any players.
Like said earlier, I may need to get Img Burn or similar to do the copying.
Mine is x64 version of the Win 7 and hence CD burner XP may not help.

Regards
Yes, you can if you either use IMGBurn like Gunmeister said, or any other CD-copying software.

Thank you very much for your assistance in my problem.

Like what Guntmeister said I will get ImgBurn to copy this music cd that I could put in my DVD ROM drive to a CD-R put in my DVD+/-RW drive without the need it to be first ripped to my HD.

Regards

Thanks again

With all due respect to the folks replying to Cabbage , it's no wonder why he's confused. The replies are just as confusing as his question.
Remember he has two cd/dvd drives and wants to copy from drive A to drive B WITHOUT going to his hard drive. If it's a factory disk he has no choose, he has to go to a hard drive to get the right format for the disk he is going to burn which will allow the new disk to open on any cd/dvd player. Period case closed. What software he uses is his choose.

Hi there
I don't understand what the problem is here
You can COPY an AUDIO CD to another CD without a problem with typical CD software such as NERO etc.

This CD (even CD-RW) will be playable on pretrty well any CD player made in the last 10 years.

If you've ripped the music to say FLAC or something else then things like NERO will still allow you to create an AUDIO CD from the music files.

I'm not sure what your problem is. -- Do not make a DATA CD from music files as these won't play in a normal CD player.

Cheers

The problem was he doesn't have any burning software like Nero. Nothing stock in Win7 will copy a cd directly that I am aware of.

You're right. WMP won't copy it will rip to whatever format you tell it to. The OP is obviously ripping the original CD in a format that his stand alone cd player can't read. He needs 3rd party software.
