How to extract a Super CD+G disc
into a hard drive
extracting a disc, we recommend using “one folder per disc” rule to
store the song files. Such folders
will be identified easily with the discs, and when in trouble, can also be replaced
easily. For example, we use D:\Karaoke folder (in case you have only C:\
partition in your drive, use C:\Karaoke) as the starting point and make
sub-folders SCDG01, SCDG02, SCDG03, etc. for each Super CD+G discs.
Super CD+G disc is simply a DVD disc with song contents. It can be read by any DVD disc drive and
is easy to copy onto a hard drive using Copy/Paste commands in Windows. Here we
demonstrate the procedure under Windows 7 Home Premium.
In Windows 7
Desktop, insert the Super CD+G disc into the disc drive. Close any pop-up windows.
Open the Windows Explorer and select the disc drive. The contents of the
Super CD+G disc will be shown on the right side.

folder and select Copy.
Now go to a folder into which you wish to save the Super CD+G disc. In our
example, we choose D:\Karaoke. Right click in the folder and select Paste.
The copying of the Super CD+G disc into the hard drive will begin. The Super CD+G discs are of 4 to 8 GB in
sizes and the copying will take anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours
depending on your laptop or PC.
When the copying is complete, rename the CAVS-MCG folder to a name what
would identify the Super CD+G disc. For example, we rename it as SCDG01. The
physical Super CD+G disc can now be taken out from the disc drive.
