I have a collection of audio CDs piles up in my room, unluckily, one of my favorites is damaged and unreadable. To avoid a repeat, I intend to make a backup copy of my favorite CDs by transferring it to flash drive. But the problem is I don’t know how to do it. Any help?

CDs generally can hold up to 750Mb of data, it’s far from being enough to save more than that. While most flash drives, which which hold memory space from 8 GB to 64 GB, can help to hold much more data. Besides, sometimes CDs may suffer from accidental damage that can render them unplayable. Thus when you want to listen to your entire music collection, flash drive will come in handy even though the original CD is unreadable.
That’s the reason why it is a great necessity to copy CD to flash drive, for those who have no ideas on how to do it, you can refer to the following two ways.
Simple Solution- iTunes
iTunes, which is commonly known as a useful program for playing, downloading and organizing digital audio and video files, also provides you a way of copying CD to flash drive.
Just insert your CD into your computer and you will see a list of audio tracks. Then you can click “Import CD” button, in this way iTunes will begin importing the tracks. When it’s done, you can eject your CD and find your newly imported songs on CD in your library. If you want to copy them to your flash drive, you just need to select them in iTunes and drag from iTunes window to your flash drive.
Best Solution- Streaming Audio Recorder
In addition to recording any audio from computer system sound, microphone or both, Streaming Audio Recorder also gives the ability to convert audio into various formats, burn audio files to CD, rip audio tracks from CDs, etc.
You can take a trial here and refer to the following steps to transfer data from CD to flash drive.
- Insert the CD you want to rip into your computer disc drive.
- Run Streaming Audio Recorder.
- Select “CD Ripper” from the dropdown list of “Tools”.
- Select the tracks you want to rip and click “Rip checked track”.
- Once the ripping is done, you can copy the tracks in the default output folder and paste them to your flash drive.
Easy Way-Free CD Ripper
Free CD Ripper is a desktop program that specially designed for extracting digital audio tracks from Audio CD to your computer hard disk. It provides as much as four common output audio formats including MP3, WMA, OGG, and WAV. Furthermore, it supports ID3 tagging which is convenient for music collectors.
However, the only catch is that, for some users, this cd ripper has limited appeal due to its single-function of extracting audio files from CD. Thus it would be much better if it’s equipped with more features as Streaming Audio Recorder.
