Windows 7: Hi There, I cant rip CD's -

Hello Folks
Now I have clicked back on win media center and restarted machine.
still get --WMP can not rip one or more (tracks?)



I have been all over the net on this , it is a problem for many people, one guy even had a program that unclicked WMP off then on again, which a few folks chimed in "Works" but when I interrogated the guy who had this home made program (on another forum) he fessed up it included spyware. As always or almost always, if the program is free-your info is/are the product.


So I guess folks (Mods) have given up on this issue cause i have no more guidance post coming in, and it is not fixed.


There is a pandemic killing folks out there to day April 21 2020 leaving a trail of valid tears in its wake, and making many face fears there is no easy answers for, to all of whom I say, I see you, you are not alone, you are seen, I have lost loved ones too. we are a single cry to the universe in mourning.



I will come back here later to see if more help has shown up.


be safe, take care of one another.

Wither thank you, despite spy ware reviews most likely posted by competitors, this program worked,

I have done all that is suggested here, and in others posts, WMP is not gonna move to a real on / off

get on with life position, I added the K-lite down load to WMP to be able To use/play Flv files,

but would like to convert them to mp4 so they are universal. is there a way to get express ripper to convert them ?

Express Ripper is for audio files.

You can import a .flv into the free VLC Media Player. Then, select Media, Convert/Save to convert it to .mp4.

.mp4 audio is actually either .mp2 or .mp3 (mpeg-1 audio layer 3) audio.

this link goes to NCH ripper, that works for a few days, even song names included, then asks for money, if you click i will buy later it rips one song, click i will buy later again and you get another one song ripped to your music file, loose and in a weird order, then i made a file for it, put songs in it and put on a 128 GB flash to my marantz and the file will not show on my marantz CD player.
Look, I know Im driving folks nuts but it not intentional,
so deleted the above linked ripper,

unclicked and reclicked media everthing back on in programs and features
still i get this

"windows can not access the file
you might not have access to comp where fill is stored
or proxie settings might not be right."


the guy who sold this to me said it was dual core, is that a reversible issue
thought: Could my hard drive be going bad

How does a CD player play anything on a USB flash drive? A CD Player plays CD's which are in the Audio-CD format. That requires software to burn your playlist to that format on the CD.

I also don't understand the connection between your CD Player and your computer. I don't know which Marantz model you have but I looked at one and the only outputs it had was either to speakers or a headset. I suppose you could connect to your computer with cables from the speaker outputs but, since the player has an amplifier, I'd be careful how to do that. No matter, since I don't know how Windows is seeing your flash drive.

I don't know what "unclicked.....................................................this" means.

If you connected your USB flash drive to your computer and then tried to play a music file from it using any number of free music players, there shouldn't be any problems unless the flash drive isn't formatted properly.

Hello wither and thanks for yours to me. And you sure darned earned your pay warning some one not to plug a power amp into a computer, cause your mother board capacitors will explode like big firecrackers

When i said clicked and unclicked, I meant what i was advised to do here in the windows media options in "Programs and features" When i got to them, they were all set for "On or use" But WMP did not work! so i clicked them all off and on again,

FYI this is a trick many XP users do to reset WMP, when it flubs up, I have seen poster's write, " I have to click WMP on and off every time I rip" which is way too often for a consumer product and there is zero excuse for and in a civilized country would have been class actionable, in this regard gates has set a Virus on the world that sickens the world with a endless science project that subtracts greatly from a persons personal growth time from inter acting with others. Period. This is why i love you guys, you all use the machine so well, you still have time to go fishing and tumble in the grass with children.
This click "off and ON again" trick was shown to me by the head mod at a XP forum. I have used that method about 20 times on XP, so i did it as I was advised here on my 7-But it did nothing to fix problem.
Now I must thank you greatly for your assumptions and questions about audio equipment, as it made me see instantly how my lack of computer knowledge must appear to many folks here, about which most have been nothing but very kind.

Audio Equipment.
Welcome to my office, I am at home on this subject. I am not a Audiophile, nor are most who call themselves such, But i love music-
CD rotate-rs or platter/players and their laser readers generate a ton of noise, No marantz CD players have a amp in them I know of except a sort of pre-pre amp that Via a RCA connection sends a signal to a out board "Pre Amp" and from there by way of a RCA connector to a out board power amp, from there via speaker wire to speakers. The world famous "Saul Marantz Sound" died around the 5005 model CD player, which was buckets of mid range (your mothers voice) at every level of sound, which was a most hypnotic tone, with near zero listeners fatigue, but then to stay market worthy cause company's were doing it,, around the 6000 series players, they then (Marantz) with great turpitude* installed a USB port on the front of their CD players, which, if you open that 128 GB USB stick and pick out the noisy flashing LED*, load USB with lossless music files and plug into the front USB port of the CD player-
gives you

More 3 dimensional bloom into the room

no motor spin noise
no laser noise
no CD player platter break downs-thus no music, and less repairs bills from repair shop time.
No scratched CD's.
Fatter Wallet.

All the above is why CD Loss-Less file ripping is so important
*This means less CD players wear out, less get sold and repaired and less CD's are sold from "re-buying a scratched CD" you love, if its still made. All of which is very nice "If you can get the gates OS" to cut you your single legal copy lossless file of a CD you bought.
* Marantz has a control to Turn all leds off on their player because it clearly makes the machine sound better, with LEDs gone there's more "Bloom" into the room, this lack of bloom has been vinyl record user's complaint for years, led's are hard on pre-amps too, Leds are very easy to yank too, but, leds "seem" not to bother power amps, but CD players, and pre amps truly are sweeter with out them.

I'm in a hurry tonight so I haven't digested everything your said. However, if you can connect the player directly to speakers for playback, then it has to have an internal amp. What is the model number for your player?

Also, you also didn't clarify how you're using the USB drive.
