    Newbie with specific audio transfer question


    Hello,
    I am new to computing and have just bought a cheapish HP laptop which I use mainly for writing. However I would also like to use the music software.

    Put simply, when I load a CD into the drive, how do I transfer(upload?) this to the Groove music application? Similarly, audio on a USB key or SD card- how is this transferred? Could someone offer a simple menu- route-to use-etc...?

    I hate going through all the website menus of instructions etc. (and my eyes are stressed enough just with my writing on OpenOffice which I successfully downloaded). Is there a more user-friendly and intuitive music software I could download for free? Any help on these points (which will totally satisfy my computer curiosity) greatly appreciated
    Thank you
    James

    What you call "transfer(upload?)" is normally called 'ripping' a CD. As far as I know, Groove can't rip CDs. The older Windows Media Player can, and is still included in Windows 10.

    Windows Media Player 12 is included in clean installs of Windows 10 as well as upgrades to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.

    Just run Windows Media Player (it's in the All Apps list under 'W', or type 'media player' in the search box next to Start), put your CD in, then click the 'Rip CD' button. The album will be ripped to your Music folder, where Groove will be able to find it.

    After ripping (or better still, before ripping) if Media Player doesn't show the album info and names, right-click on 'Unknown Album' and click 'Find album info'.

    For audio on a USB, just copy the music files to your Music folder, Groove will be able to find them too.
