Using WMP to convert from cda to wav

I don't suppose there is a plug in for Windows Media player that will convert from .cda to wave format?

I know there are scads of third party apps. If nothing for WMP, anything free or just about.

Not that I know of...

Windows Media Player only offers .WMA or .MP3 as options when ripping tracks from a CD.

However, a good tool for the job is CDEX


CDex rips fast and accurately, applying jitter correction for quality control.  Files are normalized to ensure consistent volume levels.  Track information can be read from the CD's .ini file or you can hook up to the CDDB database on the Internet, both will keep you from typing in track names yourself.

Hope this helps!
better yet use winamp!
It has Nullsoft Disk Writer Plugin-in with it. (when u use it u wont hear sound and the proggress bar goes much faster than usual but that means its writing to .wav in the directory u specified)

winamp is my personally favorite audio app so if it's ur as well i hope this helps...
I prefer Exact Audio Copy:
Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

cdex is the best but shuboarder  has already mentioned it, trust me its the best.
I use it often so here is the full guide
btw do you really want WAV

 mp3 is far better  wav is not a good a format for playing on any cd player especially in cars

Went with CDEx.

BTW, Merete, this has to do with a backward compatability issue for dictation equipment. Needed .wav format. Thanks
okay :)
