burned to cd
« on: October 23, 2020, 10:06:19 AM »
i use to burn etree shows that I downloaded to cd and delete the files after.  so now i want to put the cds back on computer but my ASUS Windows 10 doesn't recognize the cd.  Any recommendations for shareware to use?  Mac itunes took a bunch then stopped adding them to itunes for some reason.   :facepalm: thanks

Exact Audio Copy will convert CD's to FLAC.

http://exactaudiocopy.de/

Ideally you set it up via a tutorial like this one:

https://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/exact_audio_copy_installation_and_configuration.cfm

...if EAC doesn't recognize the CD-R then you're CD-R might just be unreadable. I had a bunch of CD-R's that were no longer readable.

Are you talking about backups of the flac/shn files that have been burned to CD, or music CDs?  I assume the latter, but the part about one computer reading the disc while another computer didn't makes me wonder.

xACT has a good CD-ripping feature, as does XLD. Both are freeware.
Note that XLD will try to rip multiple tracks at once unless you restrict the number of threads to 1.

thx for all the replies, now i'm just stuck that my Windows won't recognize any cd.  I have an external ASUS cd rom drive.  Should I get a different drive that Windows will recognize a cd inserted?  Winamp will recognize a store bought CD but calls a CD-R blank  What CD-Rom drive would you recommend?  Thanks again.

My software suggestions of xACT or XLD are for Mac, though I think XLD has a windows version.

You have an external USB CD-ROM drive and it plays commercial discs OK on both Mac and windows but fails to recognize the data on one particular CD-R which it says is blank? Are you certain that CD-R is not blank?

Sounds like you need to take a step-by-step approach to troubleshooting, and isolate the issue down to be sure the hardware is functional, then get some software working.

With a little searching you should be able to find most of it out there unless they happen to be your masters.

Sounds like you're doing what I'm trying to start working on, but I'm just trying to find them on LMA or BitTorrent sites.  Problem with that is I'm downloading other shows too that are getting in the way of my work process  :lol:
