    Rip CD burned with itunes music

    Burned CDs with iTunes music using Windows Media Player. Cannot rip these CDs with dbpoweramp. What do I need to do to rip these CDs with dbpoweramp to my computer? Thank you.

    my guess is, that he did not burn Audio CDs, but Data CDs with files of (compressed) music on it.

    The CD is placed in the computer tray. It is not automatically read by dBpoweramp. I click retry repeatedly and the upper left side still reads <Insert Audio CD>. It does not recognize that a CD is in the computer tray.

    That does not mean anything, as this medium can be written as an Audio CD or as a Data CD. What is the format / codec of the music files? How did you burn the CD? What do you see in the file explorer?

    Insert a normal audio cd then open windows file explorer and expand the CD drive, it will list the tracks as:

    track01
    track02

    Then insert this CD-r, it should show the same way, listing the tracks.

    Understand the difference between creating a standard Redbook Audio CD and creating a data CD containing a collection of files, albeit these files are audio files. Then post what you have created, an audio CD or a data CD.

    Bottom line: It's not an audio CD.

    When you burn a CD in Windows Media Player (and many other programs), you have the option to burn it as an "Audio CD" or as a "Data CD." Audio CDs are the kind that dBp can recognize and rip, while Data CDs are collections of data files (that happen to be music). I think Windows Media Player's default is to burn Data CDs, so I suspect you just accepted the default and made a Data CD. You can't rip that CD in dBp, but the good news is that you don't need to....you can simply copy the files to your computer in Windows Explorer.
