windows audio issues.
« on: May 28, 2017, 06:31:32 PM »
 Just bought a few  new cds , I want to copy them on to my hard drive then reburn'em on to cd  , so I can store the originals away and play the clones.

 On xp they could just be copied in original format.

 Problem, when I try and copy them through windows7 media player they appear to be compressed -question - how to copy them and retain original bitrate?

 
I plink , therefore I am.

when using windows audio, when a cd is put in, open the full windows media player, on the left under the album name there is organize, stream, create playlist, rip cd and rip settings, click on rip settings then down to format, you need to chose one of the lossless codecs, ( i use FLACK, free lossless audio codec) now it should copy in the format of your choosing, mp3 formats compress all sounds into one then chop the top and bottom frequency's off, any of the lossless codecs preserve the full range of sounds as well as the full frequency range, the bitrate has little to do with the quality but all to do with the speed at which its processed and transferred.

Thanks agn.

 As agn says, to preserve the original disc and also packaging , also with most modern cds they come in a cardboard sleeve /gatefold with a booklet of pics etc , which some are real works of art and deserve to be handled with care.

 This lot of cds are the 2011   remasterings  of pink floyds analogue vinyl catalogue.Done very nicely aswell. Unlike Jimmy Pages remasterings of the lz stuff , bull in a china shop springs to mind.Anyway I digress...

 From what I've read on the hifi forums the best way to store  cd music on a hard drive is as agn says. But the best way to clone a disc is the traditional burn method where the cd file , which is a pcm file doesn't get converted ,just copied then burnt to disc.
