where to locate WMP songs

Postby kevox » Thu Nov 02, 2006 5:19 pm

This is so frustrating. I go to rip music from a CD onto the computer so I can then burn it onto a CD-R and I can't find it beyond the WMP Library!

Where is the standard location for WMP files in Windows Explorer? I had this problem last time I burned a CD too, only that time I stumbled upon its location after way too much time spent searching. I'm tired of just searching in the dark though, surely someone here knows where the files go?

It should be in my documents\my music by default I believe. You can also search for *.wma

Why are you ripping the cd and then burning it? Why don't you just have the computer make a temp. image of it and them have it burn the cd and be done with it?

What do you mean a temp. image???? And because I'm taking 1-2 sons from multiple albums and putting them all on one CD. I'm not merely ripping an entire album.
