does anyone happen to know how many kbps (kilo bits per second?) is the typical level used by music CDs?  

Reason I am asking is that I am copying some CDs to disk, using Windows Media player.  I have enough disk space to record at the max kbps, but I figure it probably is best to copy at the same level of the CDs themselves.

CD music isn't measued in bps.
CDs are 16-bit 44.1KHz, and are actually just .wav files with these properties.
If you just want to rip the CDs into wav files, I would suggest a good ripper rather than Windows Media Player
