    i have some sampling on a cd in *.cda files, i would like to change them in *.wav files and record them on my hard drive.
    I use cakewalk 8 and sound forge.
    what is the best way to do it?

    thank you

    Your CD seems to be an ordinary audio cd.
    The most elegant way is to use a alternate cdfs.vxd for Win9x that shows cd tracks as wave file in explorer http://www.sonicspot.com/alternatecdfsvxd/alternatecdfsvxd.html - just copy it to X:\Windows\System\Iosubsys\ and reboot. Then you'll be able to open them with Soundforge directly. Wavelab is able to extract from cd anyway.
    Or use any audio ripping program - look at: http://www.zdnet.com
