Just because one is easier than the other, it doesn't mean you should get the different format for free because it would take longer. You want it digitized? You do the work.
I don't understand why people think they should be given another version at no additional cost. Law is quite clear, you gotta move it to the other format yourself, or else you're at the mercy of the content owner who may charge you.

Physical CD off the shelf, no. Legally fully within your right to create your own CD, but that boils back down to the issue as before. You have to do it yourself.
