Yes well, the fact is cdex can actually look at the text on disc, and that in most cases gets me out of the awkward issue of not having any database for that ced. Of course home made cds are a whole other thing and will need you to manually do them.Beware if you do though to only submit them to your local database or it will cause problems as the checksum could be in use by something more mainstream.

Subject: [nvda] cd rippers


Hi.

I wouldn't use itunes, unless you have an apple device, its bloated and well overkill if all you want are simple cd wripping.

Nch software has a cd ripper, its full of adds but if you use it its accessible and you can buy it.

I used to use old nero6, it was cracked never was able to afford it myself.

With the latest windows not working with it though at that point 7, and with versions upwards of 6 not being as accessible as I liked I switched to 2 modules.

Goldwave for ripping and cdbxp for writing.

The reason I didn't want to pay is I hardly write cds or dvds at all.

Goldwave doesn't have gracenote like itunes has which is either an disadvantage or advantage depending on how you look at it.

You can submit your data to gracenote and look at updating the database yourself.

On the other hand, apple and everyone will know what you are putting in.

If that matters to you well who knows.

Goldwave like nero6 uses freecddb.org databases, they are not always acurate and I am unsure how they are maintained but they work well enough mostly.

The databases are free and opensource so they are not always that fast accessing but unless you need to do this as a job I wouldn't bother.

If it is a job and or you need to bother itunes will probably do it though just make sure you don't mangle your library its easy to get out of organised sync, it can be regenerated but its a bit of work to do.

ITunes is free, and you can set it so whenever you insert a cd it will automatically rip or what apple calls import. You can also set it to retrieve song info from the internet.

It seems a lot for what CDEX does for nothing. I think you can with care use even Goldwave or winamp as well, but they are a little more fiddly.

That is what cdex does, but it all depends on whether its been ripped by somebody else or has it in the CD text.
If neither of these work on a given CD its all down to the manual work being put in by the person who is ripping them

Well CDEX still works here, if they are not in CDDB you can often read the CD text and submit that to the database to help others.
Some CDs however simply have no data on them. These tend to be the ones that are made by small outfits sold on the internet.

Hi Gene and everyone else helping,

First, yes, you can still choose between data bases and there are 3 now. For the person that said something about CDEx not working in Win10, that is not totally true as I had to rip one of the tracks using it as CD Audio Converter only ripped one of the 2 tracks on that CD, so yes, it does still work, but I ended up using Easy CD Audio Convertor to do most of the CDs that needed ripping. Thanks to you all.

Just got an update to it and it took me to the download page. Link is below.  Once you have it, the program will notify you of new versions and will automatically take you to the download site to get the latest one.

https://www.poikosoft.com/downloadupd64?ver=805

This is for the 64 bit version though but you'll be on the download site so you should be able to find the 32 bit version if you need it.

Re: Accessible CD ripper

 

I use goldwave, in fact I use it for the batch converter and cd ripper mainly.

Its still with the 40 bucks I payed for it though.

No spyware and I can use it.

One thing to note, the latest versions are 64 bit only.

You can use an older version with your 32 bit system but if you are unlikely to update any time soon, or you have a reason to stay 32 bit then I would probably use something more updated.

If like me your system has a chance of a 64 bit os in its image, like my win7 laptop, my recomendation to you is to reformat immediately and use it, you payed for it with the unit so why not.

Re: Accessible CD ripper

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

Did you double check your CD DB settings? it's not likely, but it possible that something got turned off. You could also try changing the server, and see if that makes a difference.

In any event, another accessible CD ripper is exact audio copy. I don't know what cddb lookup it uses, maybe it will help you, and maybe not. Anyhow, it's worth a try.

another thing to remember is that the cddb information is largely entered by users. It's possible that no one has entered the information for the CD you are trying to rip. In that case, it would help other users if you had the time and you could fill in the information manually and submit it.
