That is because they are coded into the disc, think of the files on the cd as links. The only way to copy them is to rip them into mp3's.

Compmania is correct, you can copy them by mp3 players (such as WinAmp), but also by using CD copy software (Nero Burner/Easy CD Creator..)

If I copy a Music CD, I first save it on my hard drive, using Nero Burner or Easy CD Creator from Adaptec a year ago as .wav's. No problem. Just have to play around with the settings a little.
