Windows Media Player Classic is a media management program that comes with many Windows operating systems, as of 2010. You can use this program to rip music from your CD library onto your computer, and then burn those files onto blank CDs. It's helpful in creating a backup CD in case your originals are lost or damaged. Ripping and burning takes a long time, but the process is simple.
