Bring your favorite CD music collection to life! Ripping a CD with iTunes and importing MP3s on Mac and Windows has become so simple. Once you have covered some basic requirements, going through the process is a piece of cake. Read on to know how it works:

The other day, I came across some of my old audio CDs that had been lying in the drawer for years. Those CDs made me feel a bit nostalgic. Hence, I didn’t want to let the memories associated with those CDs die so easily and decided to bring them to life. Thankfully, ripping a CD with iTunes and importing MP3s on Mac and Windows has become pretty simple as it no longer involves any complex steps to be taken.

If your Mac or PC doesn’t have CD or DVD drives, you can use an external CD/DVD drive or a SuperDrive to get your work done without any fuss. So, all set to digitize your CD music collection? Here you go!
