Audio CD are no longer that much in demand. Now the world has moved on to online streaming music services like Spotify, Apple Mosic and Amazon Prime Music. As the time passes by it will become increasingly difficult to even obtain a CD/DVD drive. This is exactly what happened to the Floppy drives which were once very popular. But if you still have some old recorded audio CDs lying around then you can convert them into MP3 or other music file formats. This way you can listen to those old audio CDs on your new devices without any problem.
In order to rip an audio CD, you can use FairStars CD Ripper which is a free and powerful program to rip music from audio CDs to your computer’s hard drive.
