If your audio files are on a CD/DVD in what’s known as “CD Audio Track Shortcut” (extension .cda), these files will need to be ripped into mp3 format or wave format before they can be redacted. Follow the steps below to rip (convert) any CD/DVD audio tracks to mp3 files then add them to CaseGuard Studio to redact them.
- Make sure your computer is connected to the internet if you want Windows Media Player to automatically get info about the media such as the name of the CD, the artist, and the titles from the tracks being ripped.
- Open Windows Media Player.
- Insert an audio CD/DVD into the computer’s CD/DVD drive.
- Select output files format by clicking Rip Settings –> Format –> Mp3.
- Make sure you check the checkbox next to each track when choosing which files to rip.
- Once your desired files’ checkboxes are checked, click on Rip CD.
- You can find the location your files were ripped to by clicking on Rip settings, then clicking on rip options.
