This is new in OS... 8? I think? That CDs show up as a folder full of AIFF files?

BeOS can do it with an extension. I'm sure Linux can do it too.

How does Windows handle it?

Audio FS 2 is a filing system for audio CDs. It enables you to open filer windows for audio CDs, with each track on the CD being represented by a separate file. These can be dragged to your hard drive for later playback (Non copyright material only :) or dragged to a sample playback utility.

There must be a way to make Windows do this.

for sure, I remember having this back in the day, it's an "aspi layer" you just drag to your systems folder, and then cds open like regular folders, with wave files inside.

in good old Win9x days there was an alternative driver called cdfs.vxd to show CD-DAs as wav files in the file system; this driver was unofficial and never released in an official win 9x version by MS (afaik it came with a win 9x beta ... ).

in xp you don´t have such a driver anymore.

for grabbing i use EAC; it´s free and does its job well:

Probably the biggest problem I had when I switched to a Mac was getting used to things working the way you'd expect them to. I was so used to doing things in convoluted ways in Windows that I carried on doing them the same way on my Mac.

I've found plenty of things like this, normally by chance or by watching someone who doesn't know what they're doing - they often just do the most logical thing and it works.

it would be nice if there was a list of such things compiled somewhere.
