If hard drive betters optical digital retrieval

Then why doesn't someone develope a cd/dvd player that reads the disk transfers the data to hard drive, and plays it back from the hard drive since it sounds better?
Then when another disk is inserted does it all over again writing over the old data.

It's called a Mac Mini - you press import under itunes and play back the CD after 2-3 minutes from the hard drive. And the best thing - you only have to do it once. Why the need to have a CDP - a small PC is much more convenient and flexible for the center of the media system.

Joke aside - it you want the full CD read with error correction into a harddrive that take some time. It would be not very practical for a CDP.
