Hi Ian,
Windows Media Player should be able to do the job for you.  You might want 
to go into its options and change the recording format for ripped tracks 
from Windows Media to MP3 if indeed that's what you want.  Victor Stream 
will actually play unprotected WMA files, so you don't have to switch to 
MP3 format if you don't want to.  I'll just mention that, in my personal 
opinion, there are some issues with Victor Stream's playback of WMA files 
that annoy me--some noise and distortion issues.  I keep hoping Humanware 
can address the issue, but I'm not sure they're convinced it even is an 

You do have other options.  Gold Wave has a CD ripper.  See 
www.goldwave.com.  There's also the very popular open source CDex program 
specifically for ripping tracks from CD's.  It lives at

[guispeak] Ripping tracks from a CD

6 months ago  I copied a CD onto my Victor Reader Stream, a process that 
involved ?ripping? (an ugly expression!) and changing them to .mp3 files. 
That was with Windows xp and JAWS 9.
A major crash 3 months ago forced me to get a new PC, Windows 7 and JAWS 
I can?t remember how I did it six months ago, and browsing through all the 
programs on the new machine has jogged no memory cells.
Could some one please point me to a program, already on the PC or not, 
that will enable me to do this?
Thanks in advance.
