Can't rip CD's through Windows Media Player

Hello,

Since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 I've noticed I've lost the ability to rip CD's through Windows Media Player. It just gives an error message saying "cannot rip one or more tracks". I looked in the Rip Music settings of Media Player and noticed the "rip music to this location" section is blank and when i click the "Change" box next to it, nothing happens.. its totally unresponsive.

This lead me to look at the Music folder in Libraries and when i click the folder it gives an error message saying its not working.

Can anyone help me on this one or have an explanation?

I have uploaded some print screens of these scenarios to give a better picture of the situation.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks

This doesn't fix the WMP ripping, but try the free "Audiograbber" ripping program. I have several CD ripping programs but always go back to Audiograbber. It is freeware now, but I bought it when it was shareware.

Audiograbber - Free Download - Tucows Downloads

Watch out for extra "garbage" when downloading as sites like to add toolbars, browsers, etc to the download. You can uncheck the crap so you only download the program.
