I've been using CDEX from the very first release. When the updates and newer versions stopped coming out I was disappointed but still found it to be the best one I could find even if I had to tweak it a bit to run properly. This new version is everything I had hoped for in a new release and seems to have solved all the issues caused by being out of date in the older versions.

Wow,after years a new beta... Thought the development had stopped long ago but what a nice surprise it didnt. Great.
After i changed my OS from XP 32Bit to 7 64Bit im looking for a comfortable and stable audiograbber and this is it. I checked EAC and Bonkenc before i stumbled over this new beta of CDex.
Both programms have their flaws and instabilities that CDex simply not has. So far this is the best grabber i could my hands lay on. Bonkenc has three realy anyoing issiues that stopped me from using it:
1. i couldnt save my preferred settings for the lame encoder.
2. a audiocd is often not recognized if i put it in the drive after i opened the program
3. access to CDDB was a thing of luck.
In Cdex is can save my whole settings in a profile,a cd is always recognized and the access to CDDB is stable.
EAC was fine under XP but at least on my sys to unstable for practical use. Im sure both developers,for bonkenc and for eac get those issiues fixed in the future but so far the CDex is simply the best solution for me.

i've been using this program ever since i could remember doing anything with CD's and mp3's.
it's just got all the options i want and i can't seem to find another program that can do the same.
The extracted audio tracks can be stored as WAV or MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) files. CDex is using the Adaptec's ASPI library Manager to communicate with the CD-ROM device, So make sure that you have installed the proper ASPI drivers.
