Audio CD - Help please


As I am pretty new to Linux, I am just getting used to Fedora Core 3, and when I inserted one of my music CDs today I wanted to view the files on it, and copy them onto my desktop, much like you can explore a CD in Windows and copy and paste the files. But when I right-clicked the "Audio CD" and selected "Open", it opens the CD in "CD Player" - which I don't want it to, I just want to see the files - and tells me that it is corrupt!

Please can you tell me of a way to view the files on the CD in File Browser, so that I can then copy them into a folder on my HDD?

Thanks in advance,

J_K9

Audio CD's don't contain files in the PC sense of the word. In windows it just shows them that way for convenience. If you want to copy songs from a CD you'll have to rip them to either WAV, OGG or MP3 first. The latter two are best as they're compressed formats. You can't mount an audio CD.

Thanks Komakino. Please can you recommend a program for Linux which rips CDs (preferably into MP3)? Thanks again,

[EDIT]
There are tons at tucows but I'm not sure which one to get!

rule 1) don't bother going to tucows again

rule 2) always go to sourceforge.net

try "grip", bit of class....

Thanks a lot acid_kewpie! I'll try downloading grip during the weekend!
Oh, but:

Question 1: Why shouldn't I go to tucows?

Question 2: On a different topic, is there any way of playing .avi and .asf files on Linux?

Thanks,

J_K9

just cos tucows bites, it just doesn't contain the software that people on linux actually use. it's outdated, and not favoured by developers like me.

there are loads of video players. technically the best is mplayer, but you might prefer more user friendly ones like Xine or Totem.
