Windows 7: How to rip CD's to a flash drive

How to rip CD's to a flash drive

My new car has no CD player. So I have to transfer all of them to flash drives. If I start Media Player first, then insert the CD, Media player crashes. If I insert the disk first Media player comes up With the black screen. I can then rip the CD. However the ripped files do not go in the "music" folder. Album is listed by itself. Then disappears from media player when another CD is ripped. I am not prompted to add album info. I cannot find any way to add album info except in the music folder.

I cannot get the ripped files into the Music folder nor can I copy anything from the music folder to my flash drive. If I could just rip into the music folder, edit the album artist etc, then copy that album to the flash drive I will have solved the problem. Or, if I could add album info so I would show up on my car screen, that would be ok too.

I use "Audiograbber" (freeware) to rip CD's. It will rip to wav or MP3 and you can designate where the ripped files go to (such as the flash drive). Easier and better than WMP.

In Windows Media Player, go into Options; now go to the Library tab and check the box to "Retrieve additional information from the Internet". This will cause it to include most of the song information in the MP3 files. (It may not get all of the information.) If there is any missing information, you can right-click on an MP3 file and fill in the information manually.

Now click on the Rip Music tab, and set the location where you want the RIPped MP3 files to be placed on your hard drive. There is no need to save the files to a "Music" folder at this point; you can save them to any folder you want. However, if you want to copy the MP3 files to your MP3 player, plug in the MP3 player to your computer. It will be treated like a flash drive. Copy the MP3 files to the Music folder on your MP3 player using Windows Explorer.

If your car stereo has a USB input, you can copy the MP3 files to a flash drive, and your car stereo will control the entire play process. You don't need an MP3 player for this; if you do use an MP3 player, your car stereo will likely bypass the MP3 player's functionality, and just use it as a flash drive which contains music.
