    "Worst possible"

    April 12, 2014  |   By vinaylakgmail

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    Nothing PRO to write about. Didn't serve its purpose at all. Class not registered error popped up.

    Cons

    Full of spyware/malware. I removed it when it just kept giving me errors. But after uninstall, I started getting this pop up asking me to do a free online backup. I contacted Norton support and was informed that it must have come bundled with the CD ripper.

    Summary

    CNET editor reviews were something I used to rely on to get the exact picture about the software quality. Seems like I was asking the wrong person. Shall be more cautious with your editor reviews in the future.

    "don't waste your time."

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    it was free.

    Cons

    numerous things to decline to. maybe 5 to 10 things to be careful of in the installer. then when i did try to run the program, about 5 error messages popped up before the program window showed up. i then clicked close, then uninstalled the program, and am now writing this review. wow, i don't ever remember a program that sucked so bad when i just tried to run it for the first time.

    "Didn't Work at All."

    September 20, 2013  |   By Bluespanner

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    I cant say because it didn't function.

    Cons

    Downloaded this on the strength of the reviews. Installed it then got various error messages. Uninstalled and downloaded again to be sure. Installed again, same thing. Then when the interface did come up it didn't recognise the cd drive. Plus it takes you to a web page advertisement. This seemed to open up several browser windows with the advert on. That I wouldn't mind if I could get the program to function. I'm not a newbie I've been playing around with computers since before windows came along and I keep my laptop seriously ship shape, so I'm afraid as it stands I can't recommend this software at all. (running Win 7 fully updated. AVG and Private Firewall)

    "SPAM!!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

    May 25, 2013  |   By Silvermaen

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    I don't know.. This download installed so much spyware and adware and I had to spend two hours getting rid of it, so I don't know if this is any good or not. I don't recommend trying it at all.

    Cons

    SPAM adware, spyware, toolbars that I didn't approve of. DO NOT DOWNLOAD

    Summary

    SPAM!!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD

    "Wholly useless!"

    March 29, 2013  |   By danny4101

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    I got a chance to kill 20 minutes waiting on my dinner to cook.

    Cons

    It doesn't work. It will not recognize my cd/dvd drive. Oh yeah, IT INSTALLS ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE.

    Summary

    CNET, I am disappointed. You really dropped the ball on this one. Allowing adware right on through was really the killer for me.

    "Worthless application and waste of time!!!"

    February 2, 2013  |   By dbrown020213

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    There are no pros, I'd give it negative stars if I could. It also installed another "coupon" program in the background. Useless and deceptive.

    Cons

    Same issues as everyone else. CNET "editors" rating is a joke. This app will not detect either drive on my pc. I get the same Class Not Registered error, and yes, whe you exit the stupid app, it open up a browser to a stupid www.focussoft.net.
    CNET is basically pushing a known malware application.
    Great monitoring CNET editors, thanks for the heads up.

    Summary

    Total waste of time. As others have said, do not download this POC. You will spend quite a bit of time cleaning up after it, and still have files to convert. Total waste of time.

    Version: Free CD Ripper 3.1

    Pros

    No pros at all.

    Cons

    Does not detect CD drive on my PC.

    Summary

    Using Windows Vista 64-bit. Start the program up and at the top it stays it does not detect any CD or DVD drive. I can't use a program like this if it doesn't even see my drive.
