WAV as an option for ripping in WMP

Hi.

On certain windows XP computers, it seems that WAV is not available
as an option for the desired file format for ripping an audio CD
in Windows Media Player (version 11).

What would be the easiest way to ensure that WAV is also available
as an option for the format for ripping an audio CD?

Perhaps a codec pack that I could install that makes this format
available in the ripping options?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for any suggestions, Niek

Install CDex:-

http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

It will rip to mp3 and wav formats, while adding a certain amount of
metadata to the mp3 files.

Thanks for the suggestions mentioned so far, but I'd prefer
downloading a codec so this WAV option becomes available in WMP.
Presumably I can simply install the popular K-lite codec pack,
but I was hoping that there is perhaps a specific WAV codec
available from a microsoft website that would be smaller and
easier to install.

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm

The number of options available in the k-lite codec pack can be
a bit intimidating and perhaps it's also a bit overkill when one
is really only interested in codecs suitable for the WAV format.

a .wav file can be played back in Windows Media Player if the appropriate =
codecs are installed on the computer. The most common audio codecs that are=
used in .wav files include Microsoft Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modu=
lation (MS ADPCM) and uncompressed Pulse Code Modulation (PCM)."0

It should work without any 3rd-party codecs. XP already has
the necessary uncompressed WAV codec (PCM) as standard.
So, the real question is "why isn't it working?"
Do you actually even see "WAV" as an option when ripping?
If not, then it could be that registry entries associated with
WMP are damaged (typically by 3rd-party software such a registry
cleaners, or other media apps.)

Try uninstalling then reinstalling Windows Media Player 11.

Ok thanks. It's just that I encountered an XP computer that
didn't have the WAV (and MP3) option listed in the list of
formats available for ripping. (It only had 3 versions of
the WMA format available in the list of available formats.)
I also have a few XP computers where the WAV ripping
format option is available, but since I usually have various
extra codecs installed, I assumed that perhaps the WAV
ripping format option is not available by default.

Now that I know that it should be available by default,
that more or less solves the problem as it concerns the
computer of someone else who might use windows XP and I
thought that perhaps on an XP computer the WAV option
in WMP11 was not always available. But now I know I
can assume that this option should be available on an
XP computer, unless there is an exceptional situation
where there is some kind of problem with the computer
that causes this option to disappear from the WMP11
ripping format options.
