How to rip audio with Nero

Among its many functions, Nero lets you get the tracks from a music CD and convert them into digital audio files. As usual, Nero is in charge of simplifying the process and helps you carry it out in a few clicks. The first thing you have to do is choose the right tool. To do this, launch Nero Burning Rom.

Before starting the process, we recommend that you modify some values in the Output section. For example, you can choose the pattern that will follow the name of each of the files and the directory where they will be saved.

In the Format section, Nero lets you choose the format of the audio tracks. Our advice is to opt for formats with high compatibilities, such as MP3. We should also remind you that by using a higher audio quality, the resulting files will be heavier.

When you have finished customizing all the settings, use the Copy button to start the process.

Once it is finished, go to the directory you chose and check that the extraction has been completed successfully. Nero will have created a separate file for each track that you can open with any compatible media player. Of course, you can also copy the songs to a mobile device or create a backup in the cloud.
