CDex can extract the data directly (digital) from an Audio CD, which is generally called a CD Ripper or a CDDA utility. The resulting audio file can be a plain WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder such as MP3, FLAC, AAC, WMA or OGG.

Works fine, a bit fiddly to set up.

There is NO HELP FILE. The "Help/F1" buttons do nothing. There is no help file or document in the installation.
You can get a help file from version 1.4 (2002!) here: http://www.cs.bme.hu/~roxane/CDex_140b9/
Doesn't come up on the help button, but you can open it.

Also only a FAQ and downloads at the CDEX website. No contacts, no forum, no way to make bug reports. (There are links, but they are all circular.)

Looks like this guy just got sick of support and cut it all off. Should have removed all these dead links that promise help and support then.

I've used this for years to rip audio cd's and it works well.

The last few releases I've had an issue where when I try to open the Options dialog, it crashes the program with an 'Assertion Failed' error. I'd like to report this to the author directly, but all the support links on his site either point to the main page or to the FAQ, so there doesn't appear to be any support forum or bug tracking system, and if there are, there's no way to get to them. So if you have any issues, there's no way of getting help.
