Cd won't rip using Windows Media Player in windows 7

I just got Windows 7 a few weeks ago and have had no trouble until now to rip cds.

It now however shows "windows media player cannot rip one or more tracks from the cd"

I have gone into TOOLS - OPTIONS - DEVICES - DRIVE , clicked Use error connection (both playback and rip are defaulted to digital) No change

I have gone to RIP MUSIC tab and tried to slide the Audio Quality bar and/or change the rip format, but when I do I get "the settings for ripping music could not be suppied" and they reset to original settings.

I have gone into Registry Editor and deleted the low rate MP3 encoding rate and still no change - it just keeps giving me the  "windows media player cannot rip one or more tracks from the cd".

 

any ideas??????????

Open WMP

Go into Tools - Options - Rip Music and see if you have a location the music is being ripped to. I didn't when I looked, it was blank.

then go to Organise - Manage Libraries - Music, there should be a music folder location here, if there isn't press "add" and add the music folder.

Now do the same for the other 3 libraries, Videos, Pictures and Recorded tv, all should have locations, delete the ones without a location.

try to rip again.

hopefully like me you will be off and running again.

Hi Schleke,

The problem could be because the CD could be damaged or scratched. May be try out with a new CD. What say?

If the error still shows up, configuring the following setting might help you in completing the rip.

1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Go to Tools -> Options -> Devices.
3. Select CD/DVD burner and chooseAdvanced.
4. Place a checkmark on “Use error correction”.

Once you’ve done that, try ripping the CD.

Hi Shinmila,

 

Thanks for that, but you will see from my first post, that I have already tried that approach and it did nothing.

Going into Troubleshooting, it has detected that the media library is corrupted, so now I am stuck as to what I should do next.

I did open up a new user account to see if WMP would work and it did, but I would still like to get my original one working properly again.

Hi Schleke,

Information that is stored in the database or the database itself can become corrupted. The Windows Media Player library database can usually recover automatically from database corruption. Here’s how you resolve corrupted library.

1. Exit Windows Media Player.

2. Click Start, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.

3. Select all the files in the folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.

Note You do not have to delete the folders that are in this folder.

4. Restart Windows Media Player.

Note Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

5. Run Windows Media Player.

If this does not resolve the problem, clear the Windows Media Player database cache files. To do this, follow these steps:


1. Exit Windows Media Player.

2.  click Start, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft, and then click OK.

3. Select the Media Player folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.

4. Restart Windows Media Player.

Note Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.
This should fix the issue.

Dear Schleke,

I am having the same problems with my WMA and the rip music issue.  Could you please help me out?  Maybe you could give me the help that Andy gave you?  This would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much.
