    Default Program to extract files from a CD so that I can email to a friend

    Any ideas on a free program that does the above?

    Thanks!

    do you need to send a lot of large files at a time...is that the issue? if so you can use dropbox or sendspace. if you just need to do a few you should be able to just copy to the desktop with whatever operating system you're running.

    Audio CDs? If its a regular data CD you can just attach them in an email. Choose attach and when the browse popup appears choose your CD ROM drive, select the file and hit attach or open. Larger files you could upload to google docs and share them with a friend.

    Windows Media Player will rip audio CDs to MP3. I will leave the legality of that up to you though.

    Direct quote from google docs website
    Other files:

    Files that you upload but don’t convert to Google Docs format can be up to 10GB each.

    This upload limit is larger than the free storage space given to each Google Docs user. Every user is given 1GB of free storage space for files, and can purchase additional Google Docs storage to upload larger files.

    Thanks you guys!

    Yes, it is an audio CD so the files are pretty big. It's just been a long time since I had to do something like this so I know I look like a giant noobie, haha!

    Edit: Thank you for the google docs idea... going to see if he has a gmail account...

    Ok, So I am a giant idiot. I just discovered in my windows media player that I can rip the CD into mp3 format.

    In my defense I have been an Apple baby sucking at the teat of itunes for a long time now.

    Nice thing about google docs is that people don't need accounts to access the uploaded files. You can just upload something and create a private link, which lets anyone with the link download it.

    I use it at work if people are too retarded to figure out FTP.

    Thank you again! I was not aware of that. It's a great tip to know.
