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.

ASSERTION FAILURE

You might find that even with this version [2.18] you may get an 'Assertion Failure' when opening the settings menu.

Just click 'ignore' - it will then carry on and work as expected!


Review by cpcnw on May 24, 2019 Version: 2.18 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




CLEAN VERSION - Great software for ripping CD's!

As other comments - be aware that the installer includes fusion.dll - which is often flagged by AV/AS as being spyware / adware although other users are suggesting this is a 'false positive'

In any case I downloaded the .exe in Linux and stripped out all the guff just leaving the files required for operation. I have removed all but English language however I have included the most recent lame dll.

You can get the clean version here bit.ly/2wgkqLA

Please note the above linked file is clean and checked by Virus Total and gets 100% clean status.

"Freeware but ad-supported installation. Be careful when installing it to avoid unwanted addons!"

Indeed. Can't even get it to install as it is quarantined by various anti-virus and anti-malware software when trying to install it.

It's best stick with the ad-free version (which is quite a bit older) or find the clean PortableApps version which is a few versions behind.

Decent software when able to run it from a clean version.


Review by DudeAbides on Nov 10, 2018 Version: 2.12 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 8/10




Works great, except that trying to select Settings/Options crashes the program. Big problem since you can't set directory and other things. Going back to a previous version.

No comments. Rating it only.
