I often take my CD's and rip my favorite songs into mp3's, using Windows Media Player. The problem I always encounter is that I go into "options" and choose for Windows Media Player to NOT automatically rip the CD when I insert it into the CD-ROM drive, but it does anyway!!! It also takes a while before it lets me click the "Stop Rip" button, and by that time the first song is already ripped and stored in my library. Has anyone else here who have used Windows Media Player to rip songs from CD's experienced the same problem? Could it be a defect in the software??? Since Windows Media Player is often the "main" media player on computers, would it hurt to completely delete it and use another program such as RealPlayer, etc.? Thanks.
i had this problem too and found a solution. in windows vista go to control panel and there to the autoplay settings (i don't know what it is in english, i have german windows) and there disable the setting "automatically rip cd" or so for audio cd media.
