The simple way to
convert CDs to Digital.

Your CDs contain memories that should be kept, whether it's your band's formative songs from years gone by, cherished family recordings, or vital data. Unfortunately, CDs are not immune to the effects of time. They have the potential to deteriorate with time, which could result in a drop in quality as well as the loss of data. Our expert CD to Digital conversion service can help you with that.

Our core expertise lies in the process of converting CDs to contemporary digital formats. This ensures that your most treasured songs, personal recordings, and data may be accessed and enjoyed for many years to come. Don't let no longer owning a CD player, or the natural deterioration of CDs wipe out your cherished memories; instead, entrust them to us so that we can convert them in an accurate and careful manner.

Although CDs have been widely used for quite some time as a storage media, there is no assurance that they will remain functional forever. Research has demonstrated that compact discs (CDs) can develop failure, sometimes known as 'disc rot,' in as little as ten years due to manufacturing defects and differences in chemical makeup. It is essential to move your data before it becomes unavailable because CD formats typically start to deteriorate after 20 years.

Convert your CDs to digital formats and you can avoid the inevitable degradation of optical media. Current digital formats such as Memory Sticks, MP3s, and Cloud Storage/Streaming provide a more dependable and practical method of storing and accessing your content forever.

We have performed many 1000's of hours of audio conversions to date, converting all types of media formats, so you can have faith that your CDs are always in good hands. In addition, your recordings will come back sounding better than ever - as our highly trained professionals makes use of specialized equipment and methods to extract every last bit of audio fidelity and data integrity from your CDs.

Keep your memories fresh - get in touch with us today to have your CDs converted to digital and go on a journey through time-honored nostalgia.

FAQs

Q. How do I convert CDs to digital?
Converting CDs to digital formats involves using a rare thing these days - a computer with a CD drive, in addition to CD ripping software, and ample storage space on your computer’s hard drive. Insert the CD into your computer's CD drive, use the ripping software to extract the audio tracks, and save them in a digital audio format like MP3 or even a lossless format such as FLAC.

However, due to the fact that you can only make one copy at a time, this can be a time-consuming process. At Digital Converters we are able to convert your original CD into as many copies as you would like at no additional cost.
Q. Is there a professional service to convert CDs to digital?
CDs can be converted to more up-to-date digital formats by professional services such as ourselves, Digital Converters, who specialises in performing CD to Digital conversions. We make use of specialised hardware to guarantee high-quality conversions with no quality degradation to either the video or the audio.
Q. Which audio formats are suitable for converting CDs to digital?
Common audio formats for converting CDs to digital include MP3, FLAC, WAV, and AAC. The choice depends on your preference for audio quality and compatibility.

We always transfer your CDs to high bitrate WAV files to ensure maximum compatibility with playback devices.
Q. What software can I use to convert CDs to digital formats?
For home use, software options like Exact Audio Copy (EAC), iTunes, and dBpoweramp are commonly used for ripping CDs and converting audio tracks to digital formats. At Digital Converters we use professional grade software to ensure a completely lossless copy.
Q. How long does it take to convert a CD to a digital format?
The time varies based on the number of tracks, the speed of your CD drive, and the performance of your computer. Generally, converting a standard album takes around 5-10 minutes.

If you utilise our CD digitisation service, you can expect to receive your digital files in around 1 week from the time we receive your discs.
Q. Can I improve the audio quality when converting CDs to digital?
You cannot improve on the original, but you can maximise the audio quality of copies made by choosing lossless formats like FLAC, ensuring accurate ripping, and using a CD drive with error correction capabilities. To ensure the best quality possible, use a professional digitising service such as ourselves, Digital Converters.
Q. Can I convert copy-protected CDs to digital formats?
Converting copy-protected CDs is illegal in the UK due to digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Some software might bypass protection, but be aware of legal considerations. It is for these reasons that we cannot convert commercially released CDs for you.
Q. How much does it cost to convert CDs to digital?
Converting CDs to digital formats yourself may seem cost-effective at first, with minimal expenses for the required software and storage media, but most computers do not have any kind of disc drive these days, so you would need to purchase an external drive capable of error correction, making the whole process far less affordable.

A cheaper option is to utilise a professional CD converter such as Digital Converters.
Q. Can I edit the tracks before converting CDs to digital?
While CD ripping software generally doesn't offer extensive editing, you can use audio editing software to modify tracks after conversion, for example to alter the EQ or remove unwanted sounds.

We will always process your files to remove any glitches or defects in the recordings.
Q. Can I store digitised CDs on cloud storage?
Yes, one of the options we offer is to upload your converted CDs to the cloud for you to download or stream at your leisure from any device with an internet connection. Alternatively we also offer CD to USB conversion
Q. Can I convert damaged or scratched CDs to digital formats?
The extent to which damaged CDs can be converted depends on the type of damage that was sustained by the CDs. However, professional CD conversion services such as ours are equipped with specialised methods for reclaiming content, and we can successfully extract the audio perfectly in 99% of cases, if the scratches are not extremely deep.
Q. Can I preserve CD metadata during conversion?
Ensure your ripping software retrieves and maintains CD metadata (track titles, artist names, album info) during the conversion process.

We will always include any meta data in the digital conversions of your CDs when we convert them.
Q. Is there any loss of quality when converting CDs to digital formats?
Converting to lossless formats like FLAC or WAV maintains original quality, while lossy formats like MP3 and AAC *can* result in some loss of audio quality due to compression if the highest quality levels are not used when making the files.

We convert to very high bitrate, 24khz MP3s which sound identical to the original CDs to the human ear.
