Anyone?
I would REALLY like to get the music off my Y's I & II and Dungeon Explorer II games, if possible.
I would buy the soundtracks, but can't find them through searching(if they exist at all).
So what is my alternative? Using the game discs themselves forever? I don't like doing that, and I'm afraid they are going to stop working one of these days.
I read that I could use my PC to open the files and save into a new format, but when I put them into the drive nothing happens. 
Suggestions?
Thanks!...maybe

You could probably just make a straight copy of the cds themselves instead of bothering with ripping the audio.  I know it's possible, because some asshole on eBay sold me a bunch of CD-Rs instead of the actual Turbo CD games he was claiming to offer.

So how does one make a copy of a cd that isn't even being recognized when placed into the computer?
It shows one 55 byte file that doesn't do anything when I click on it. That's it.
I realize that I probably won't be able to do much. I just thought somebody might have an idea or two.
thanks

Hmm.  My copy of Ys is doing the same shit, but I know damn well I've ripped the music off of it before.  I'll investigate this a little this afternoon; God knows I need something to do now that the weather canceled my fishing trip. :P

Oops, I forgot to reply to this. :P

Even though I can't get the audio to show up in My Computer, the audio tracks load up when I open my mp3 ripping software.  Basically, you just shove your cd into the drive and then use this.
