Preview Music Tracts On Cd Before Downloading

Question

How does one preview a specific music selection on a CD before copying it onto your computer? In EMC7 all you had to do was right click the mouse after selecting the track. This does not seem to work in EMC8

Using Music Disc Creator you should be able to hit "import from cd",highlight the track and hit the play arrow at the bottom of the screen

Thank you for your help. I tried your suggestion and was able to preview the track. It still presents something of a problem to me, however, as the goal of Music Disc Creator seems to be creating DVDs or other discs. All I wanted to do was copy the track to my computer as I did regularly with EMC7 using the "Copy tracks from Audio CD" option. At any rate, I think I am on the right track now. Thanks again

I liked the way you could do this preview as well (in EMC7).

I am experiencing the same frustration that you are when I want to load songs to my computer. This is especially helpful when you don't want to transfer the entire CD and are looking for a specific song that you may have forgotten the name of.

My workaround is a PITA compared to how easy it used to be, but it works. I open Windows Media Player and it'll show all the tracks and titles so I can sample what I need.

Any other tips for this are very welcome.....

Open the home page and look to the right or go under audio and open "convert CD". Load the disc and check the ones you want to convert/save and the location you want to put the saved files. Click on options near the lower right, select audio and convert and select wav file or any other format I think default is mp3. This tool does not give you the ability to preview the music tracks.

Try using Roxio Media Import.You will be able to preview,choose a format and choose a location to import to.You can also look up disc info,hold down shift to select consecutive tracks or hold down control to choose nonconsecutive tracks.

Weird as it seems you can find it from your start menu,all programs,Roxio,then either Photo or DVD and Video.Use the Audio tab when you get there.

I don't see what the problem is doing the last thing I suggested.It does everything you're asking for.If your goal is to get the tracks onto your HD and preview them first it will work just fine.
