How to Copy a CD to Your PC

Audio Transcript

To copy a CD to your Windows Vista PC, first, place the CD in your CD-ROM/DVD drive. Choose start, then computer. In the computer window, double click the CD-ROM drive item to open it. If the file or folder that you want is stored within another folder, double click the folder or a series of folders, until you locate it.

When you find the file you want, click it to select it. Then press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy it. Depending on how you choose to display files and folders, you might see text listings as icons — or even thumb print representations of file contents.

Back in the computer window; double click on the icon for your hard drive to select it. Navigate through the folders on your hard drive until you find the location where you want to copy the file to. Press Ctrl + V to paste the file to its new location on your hard drive.
