Help please copying CDs! - NOT amateur radio

I need help doing something that I thought would be easy! We have a Windows10 PC and an external DVD/CD drive that plays audio CDs through the PC, so I know the external drive works.

How do I copy this audio CD to the hard drive of the PC?

The CDs are from Iceland and I think the group has disbanded, so we want to make backups in case the CDs get damaged. I did the obvious things (copy and paste) but this did not work.

Try windows media player and "rip" the cd.

I've been a bootleg trader for ages and recommend a tool called EAC. Just google for it. A rip of CD with media player gives most of the times a MP3 lossy audio format as output. EAC (Exact Audio Copy) gives a losless WAV. Good luck. 73, Bas

I Googled and found I could make MP3 copies using Windows Media Player.

Thanks for suggestions, but "job done".
