Yes, and that's the route I took. Thanks for responding, Dean.

As a side issue, you can set windows Media Player to rip to other formats, 
you're not limited to WMA.

Subject: [all-audio] How to rip CDs with VLC

I'm hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD 
with VLC media player. I've tried intuition and Google, but I'm getting

somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there's no sound.

I'll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close that 
program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

I'm not looking for another ripping program. WMP is okay, but the sound quality

hoping that using it for ripping will bring better results.

Thanks for any instructions or tips.
