Finding wav files

Question

Having viewed the excellent video about mastering in CBL for beginners, I realize that one of the earlier steps he suggests is to import a Wav file similar to the one I would be working on to use as a reference. While I do have some Wav files that I have made myself, I can't seem to be able to download commercial wav files from CD's. I guess I would even buy one if needed, though I would think many of the downloadable songs are MP3. Is there a way to download a wav file from a CD right onto my hard drive, as opposed to "ripping" it into   some  music playing software.  Now, when I try to copy it from the CD and paste it to a folder in my hard drive, I  get a 1 kb file.

Thanks.

You need to rip the audio from the CD to a file. An Audio CD does not have a file system you can drag and drop from without software assistance.

EDIT: Well, today I learned something. See below.

Cakewalk will import from an audio CD. With a CD in the computers disk drive use File-Import-Audio CD. It will pop up a track list of the songs on the disk.
