From CD to Folder

17 posts in this topic

I was just wondering about this. I want to make a program to copy the contents, of a *music* cd to a folder on the hard drive. I want to make the folder name a variable, as well as its location.

1) Is it possible to copy the entire contents of a music cd at all?

2) At the point in the script where I want to chose the location to save to disk, I want it to make a popup starting in like the C:\ Drive, kind of like when you go to download something off the internet, so how would I do that?

Thanks for any help you can give. I'm asking about this BEFORE, because I want to know if it is even possible before I go and spend all of that time! Also, I wanted to know about the save directory thing. Thanks again.

Of course this is possible... all CDs have files on them whether it is music, movie, or data. The drawback to this is of course that after you copy the files off of the CD they will be in CDA format which is not a MP3 compatible file format. Copying the files is trivial, decoding CDA to MP3 is the complex part. This complexity makes it not worth doing as there are several audio rippers available on the internet. Some even open source and free!

Well with other programs or w/e you would do.

Could you do like

DirCopy("D:\", "C:\Program Files\My CD")

or would u use FileCopy.

AKRip might help.

AKRip @ SonicSpot

I have never used this, just googled for it.

You could use AutoIt to gather command line parameters for AKRip then fire up some sort of:

$run = @comspec & ' /c akrip $var $var $var'

I believe Besweet does commandline audio conversion. You could look into this?

Okay are you actually wanting the files MP3 playable? Or do you want a CD image on your hard drive of which you could load in as if it was a real cd? Or then again do you just want to copy the .cda files to your HDD.

I just want a copy of the entire music file into a folder on my HD, not in MP3 format, and I don't want to use my CD to load them up.

Okay you have a program to play the .cda? The emulation of a CD would allow you to play the cd just like it was in your drive but without it being there.

I dont know if you have tried it before but for some reason .cda's have never played for me when just copied. Maybe the newer versions are different I havent tried it in a long time...

Try...

FileCopy("FileCopy("X:\*.*", "C:\My CDs\*.*");replace drive 'x' with your cd drive...

I dont know, but you probably have to create the file first.

Okay what I am going to have you do is download the following programs. I have figured out from talking to you that you arent really just wanting the files copied. You want them playable. I know of a way to emulate a CD.

Download DDump with Frontend and DAEMON Virtual CD (spelling or word order may be incorrect)

Let me get the web addresses for it.

Please dont give AutoIt or these programs a bad name and use them for illegal purposes.

Thanks,
