The right ripper

Rip tracks from CDs with this intuitive program.

Accord CD Ripper Free is an easy-to-use utility that lets users quickly rip audio files from CDs to their computers. The program's uncomplicated design and useful features make this a great choice for anyone seeking a basic CD ripper.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with its major features arranged by attractive graphical buttons. When we inserted a CD, the program automatically downloaded the track information from the freeDB database, which is something we always like to see in a CD-ripping program. The program also allows users to edit the CD information and select the format in which the track data is displayed. Ripping the tracks from the CD was a simple matter of choosing MP3 or WAV for the output format and clicking the appropriate button. The program quickly ripped the tracks from the CD and stored them in the specified destination folder. Accord CD Ripper Free doesn't have any especially impressive features, but that's part of what we like about it; it's simple and uncluttered, and it does the basic work of ripping CDs without offering a bunch of unnecessary distractions. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, we found Accord CD Ripper Free to be a pleasure to use, and although users can purchase an upgraded version that contains more features, we feel that the free version is just fine as it is.

Accord CD Ripper Free is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
