Windows 8.1 - how to copy CDs

I want to copy my old CDs onto my new phone (instead of old MP3 player) via my new laptop. Once upon a time I used to put the CD into the laptop, copy it on to the laptop, and then copy it onto my MP3 player. But I can't even seem to copy the CD on to this new laptop? Can that still be done?

This laptop seems to have come with VLC Media Player which is what I thought I used to use. Laptop is under 12months old and comes with 8.1.

That looks possible, after googling "rip cd to mp3 using vlc".

Couldn't see it there, but have found out that it can be done on Windows Media Player.

Dint know VLC had any ripping compatibilities,its a very old & one of the best open source players but i don't know of any ripping feature's on it

There are thousands of free ripping tools online.Like the above post Windows media player also rips.

Sure, VLC can rip. Start playing the CD and press pause, select Media -> Convert/Save, then select Disk -> Audio CD and choose the MP3 profile.
