I am slowly losing my mind here. Due to all the copyright protection, it seems nearly impossible to save my own original music onto a cd, take that home and import the file into cubase. Windows media player, i-tunes take over and make it impossible to just keep the original .wav file-everything gets converted or manipulated somehow. I recorded a live drumtrack at school, and want to import the audio tracks here at home. Any ideas? Nero doesn't seem to allow you to 'rip' files onto your harddrive. The files are 19 mb on the cd, but end up as 3mb files if I try to import them. Thanks!
