I'm new to using Music Bee and have been having some issues with pretty basic tasks.  My version is the latest, 3.3*
For this post, I'd like to ask if someone could quickly guide me through burning a CD to a file location on their computer.
I'd like to have the format as MP3 or MP4.

When I insert the CD, it appears in the tabs as "D:".  Sometimes it detects the Album and all tag metadata, sometimes it does not, leaving that aside for now.

I could just as well do this using other applications that I'm familiar with, but I really am enjoying the many features of MusicBee and would like to understand this better.

Currently, I can select "Send To ->" and then "Folder (Move).
It's sending them to the location I select as WAV files.  They don't appear to have any tagging, just named "Track1", "Track2", ect
In the preferences I have CD Ripping set to MP3.  

Appreciate the assistance.

You're welcome!

Also, I put in a wishlist request here: https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=32870.0

I feel like the CD Ripping command is still a little hidden in MusicBee, this might help people find it.
