DVD-RW audio disc problem

Recently, a friend burned me 4.2 GB of music onto a DVD-RW for me.

They are Mpeg Layer 3 Audio files.

When I insert the disc, I am only able to play the disc through windows media player, real player, or itunes.

I would like to rip the music off the disc onto my computer, why will it not allow me to do it.

I do have a DVD-R/RW drive, and can play all DVDs.

Thank you for your help.

In Windows, Explore the disc, highlight all the mp3’s-> choose Copy, then Paste to a folder on your Hard drive. You may then want to Highlight all the mp3’s on your hard drive, right click-> Properties, then untick ‘Read Only’.
