record cd with windows xp sound recorder
 
can this be done with the sound recorder in windows xp?

without one of those aftermarket sound recorders?

i tried it but the sound recorder doesn't pick up the sound of the cd
playing in windows media player...seems it might just be a software switch
somewhere, instead of having to hardwire it...

Get a CD ripping program. There are multitudes of free ones around. Go to
www.download.com for a start. A ripping program will digitally extract the
sound data from the CD, and write it to your harddrive as an uncompressed
..Wav file or a compressed media file like Mp3, WMA, etc.

That's not the way to do it. You need to use a "ripper" to extract the
music files from your CD. This one is free and highly recommended:
http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/ CDex can rip the music to your hard drive
as .wav files or encode them on the fly to .mp3 format. Wav files are
large- over 10MB per minute of music; mp3 files are much smaller.

The Sound Recorder utility included in Windows is a non-starter.
It can only make recordings lasting one minute, anyway (though
there are ways around that).
