Quite friendly to this music lover: Even if a music manager first, playing a CD with MusicBee works very nicely for this happy, grateful free-(down)loader. Just as when I listen to my ripped music collection, when inserting a CD in my USB-powered player/ripper, MB launches in a few seconds, I get a track listing, always, in my upper-right panel in a couple of more, and an album image follows in my lower-right panel, for most albums. My favorite listening is using the built-in Now Playing screen, and that works as beautifully while CD-playing as in my most common ripped-collection-listening mode. Also, I don't need to run anything as an administrator to set MB as my AutoPlay choice. I can even save an especially-nice artist image while playing, and occasionally, I'll send a copy with thanks to the soul that has lent me the CD -thanks to MusicBee.
For whom it matters, I'm running Version 3.4.7805 on a Windows 7 NUC, my CD-listening and -ripping setup.
