Is there a way I can rip music from a cd to windows media lossless using EMC 8?

I can rip music to windows media audio, but not lossless. Anyway I can change settings,or download a codec to do this? Thanks!

 

Rip as wav file; they are lossless. You should find that in the options.

To answer your first question, no EMC 8 will not do that. Some of us older guys missed the part about the WMALossless format.

 

You would have to rip them to your computer as wav, convert them to WMALossless using a third party converter and then delete the original wav file. I'm not sure how much space you will save.

 

Have you thought about using flac, a free lossless format ? I believe that EMC 8 will do that.Where do you want to play the audio files? These will handle flac. If you just want them to play on your computer; try Songbird (free).

There's also the "APE" format, which is a lossless format. As mentioned above, you'd rip as .WAV files, then use the convert from Monkey's Audio.

I am using EMC 8. Will EMC 9 or 10 rip to windows media lossless?

Thanks to everyone for your help!

Well, since I don't see WMA Lossless as an option on Creator 2009, I don't believe EMC 9 or 10 will have it either.

 

I might also ask where you plan to use your WMA Lossless files, as apparently not all player support that codec. And do you have any particular reason not to use the FLAC or APE lossless compressors?
