Ripping a CD
There are two ways to rip a CD by using the Windows Media Player control. Windows Media Player 9 can rip CDs by using IWMPPlayerServices::setTaskPane. Windows Media Player 11 introduces the IWMPCdromRip interface for ripping CDs. This interface provides more functionality than IWMPPlayerServices::setTaskPane, and it is recommended that you use IWMPCdromRip if it is available.
