Dictionary Entry - rip
Taking a media file located on a source disc and transfer it to a file located on a computer drive is ripping. This process is used, for example, for backing up CDs and DVDs

An example would be ripping tracks 3, 6, and 9 of an album you just bought. Then you would have them on your computer for use as you like.
