CDex is a Windows tool for ripping audio tracks from audio CDs to WAV or MP3 files. This is a great utility for ripping the audio CD collection gathering dust in your attic and converting them for playing on devices without a CD/DVD drive.
CDex is straightforward to use:
Insert your audio CD into a drive connected to your Windows computer. Its tracks will appear listed in CDex.
You can pull the artist/album/track info from FreeDB using the CDDB → Read remote FreeDB option. You would need to provide an email address in the Settings before this can work.
To rip to MP3, use the Extract CD tracks to Compressed Audio Files option on the right. This uses the LAME MP3 Encoder, which is installed along with CDex.
You can configure the directory and filename format for the ripped MP3 files in the settings.
That is all there is to it.
