    I believe that burning a CD indicates making a straight CD-to-CD copy. Ripping a CD transfers the songs to data files (.wav, .mp3).
    "There's a Japanese term called wabi-sabi, not wasabi, but wabi-sabi. It means an appreciation for the imperfect, the less than precision. The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes!

    Burning a CD describes the process of writing to a CD with a laser, as the bits of digital data are literally burned into the disc.

    Ripping refers to extracting files from a CD. Most ripping software these days will also encode the files in WAV or MP3 format.
