Copying CD's

I'm running Windows XP Pro.  I insert an audio CD and choose Explore.  I try to Copy & Paste the tracks, but the files in the destination are only 2Kb long.  They're obviously bigger than that on the CD!  I then tried to use Windows Media Player to rip the files, but it won't let me copy them in their existing format - I have to choose either Windows Media Format or MP3.  All I want to do is copy the files in their normal audio format (is it WAV?).  What do I need to do?

They have 2 versions, the free one is all you will need:
http://music.yahoo.com/jukebox/

Just keep following the links to the free software.

(MusicMatch was bought out by Yahoo, hence the 2 different site names in the links I've provided)

and no, WAV is not the 'native' CD format, but comes closest to it (they are both uncompressed audio)
