Audio files or songs on CDrom usually have the extension .cda i think it's for CDAudio
which is too large to be stored on a hd
it must be converted to another format
either .wav or .mp3
..wav format won't serve as you want nearlly same size of .cda
so you need .mp3 and the best program to do this is Music Match Juke Box.
go to and search for it
Enjoy :))
sure you can. 1st you have to find the file on the cd that you want to save. For example lets say that x:\directory\filename.wav (or .mp3 .mid ,etc)
(Assuming x is your cd_rom and structure)
Just highlight the file and either select Edit\Copy or right click and select copy or just drag it over to the c:\
To put it simple just treat the audio file like any other on your harddrive and copy it over.
