CD ROM

How do you access the cd rom functions to be able to
read a music cd and convert to a wave file ?
Have got as far as reading in the 5 bytes containing I
presume a pointer, then a call to dos io but the machine crashes.
I am writing a class to convert music CD's to .wav files
in DOS 6.xx and/or wfw 3.11/win NT 4.00 but not win95/98.
any help would be appreciated
sys: dx486,sx486 win 3.11,winNT 4.00 Visual C++ v1.5/1.52
MASM 6.10,6.11 , Visual Basic 3.00

You want THE PROGRAM to convert the file to a wav file, or you just want to know how to convert the CD music to a wav format?

Try the program/tutorial here....

What you can do is use the methods from the above link to start the CD playing, then have another part to your program launch or start in sync to record much like the simple wave recorder that comes with windows. Your code that plays the CD should be able to send messages to the code that records the .wav to tell it when to start, stop and save.

I was hoping to read the bits on a Audio CD to directly save
to the hard drive as raw data then converting to a .wav file.
