Editors' Review

This freebie might not be the speediest ripper on the scene, but its unexpected extras give it a boost. Free CD to MP3 Converter can rip tracks in the format found in its name in addition to OGG and WAV files.

If you opt for MP3, you may wait around longer than you'd like, as the program first extracts songs to temporary WAV files before converting them to the compressed codec. In our tests, the application had no trouble obtaining track information from the Internet. As you might expect, the program lets you set the bit rate and use VBR compression, but the ability to normalize tracks is a welcome surprise. Ditto for the audio-conversion and recording tools, which are quite basic but still work just fine.

Note that when converting files to MP3 or WAV formats, you won't actually see them show up in a queue, though you can still process tunes in batch mode. The utility can also now compress WAV files into the OGG format. In the end, this piece of freeware makes a strong case for itself.

"Yontoo Virus Warning"

June 21, 2012  |  By cevo66

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.3

Pros

Great software but I give it a 1 due to virus software that downloaded with it.

Cons

Yontoo Virus downloaded with software!

Summary

I downloaded the "Free CD to mp3 Converter" on 6/15/12 and found it worked very well (As a student of the violin and cello, I was thrilled to find software that would allow me to just play mp3s for practice rather than having to swap out a half a dozen CDs per session.), so on 6/19/12 I donated $14.95 to the creator of the software as thanks. Much to my dismay, however, I discovered on 6/20/12 that when I downloaded the software on 6/15, I also received without my knowledge or permission, a piece of software by Yontoo that hijacks image space and displays its own content in different Google ads that appeared on web pages. I first noticed yesterday that an ad for a search company called Contenko was appearing on web pages where Google Ads and other 300x250-pixel image ads would normally appear.

I also kept getting some notices about websites/Firefox not working properly and did not know why until I discovered the Yontoo Virus that had installed itself on my computer. Once I uninstalled this malicious software, the ads no longer were hijacked by Yontoo and I have had no problems with websites not working properly.

If you download this software, make sure you check your Control Panel for Yontoo and remove it immediately!

Updated on Jun 22, 2012

Update: The Yontoo virus is added by CNET. I wrote to the software's author, and he confirms that he does not add any extra programs with his distribution. The author requests that you download the software directly from his website to avoid this problem.

"Quirky and didn't work for me"

February 12, 2012  |  By lyrx-2009

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.2

Pros

Free, of course.

Cons

Converted one CD OK. Then the next CD conversion wouldn't show up in the designated folder. I deleted the app and reloaded and it converted the next one. This situation continues after each CD conversion. Also, even though I named each file, neither Winamp nor Win Media Player would recognize the name of each track. So if you want to convert a couple of CDs, I guess it's OK, but don't pay for this application because it's not really functional.

Summary

As I stated, I'm glad I didn't pay for a "Free" app. I will continue looking for an application to convert my CDs to MP3s and will pay for software with a garantee. Don't "donate" or pay for a Free version which is probably in an alpha stage of development.

"Free, though you pay if you want to show support."

January 16, 2012  |  By bearzs

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.2

Pros

I was not very optimistic this would do what I wanted it to do after
reading the other comment. But it promptly converted a whole cd to mp3
in about 3 minutes on my old computer. Thought interface was nice and
easy to get accustomed to.For a freeware product it seems to have a fair selection features. I've had no problems at all with this product.

Cons

Not much I can say bad about this program. Except for every time you run the program, you get a screen reminding you that while it's free, you can show support by paying. If you can't afford to you can just hit skip to run the program anyway.

Summary

All in all, it did what I needed. And it did it well. Satisfaction.

"Just Didn't Work"

December 18, 2011  |  By Confed

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.2

Pros

Easy to set up and select options and it's FREE.

Cons

I hit the "Extract" button and it just sat there. I tried another freeware program and it worked fine. Two thumbs down on this bad boy. And when I uninstalled it, it immediately shut down my computer and I lost a long post I was working on.

Summary

This program is exceptionally poorly written. The "Option" setting doesn't retain settings like the output folder and default drive. It could damage your computer setup. Best to steer clear. You get what you pay for!

"Not better than Windows Media Player-Windows 7"

January 29, 2011  |  By apistomaster

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.0

Pros

N/A as I did not actually end up using it.

Cons

N/A N/A as I did not actually end up using it.

Summary

I finally got around to burning my CD's to my Windows 7 Home Premium Dell Studio 17 laptop for my first time so I had no prior experience. I couldn't figure out how to do it so I down loaded the subject CD to MP3 Converter 3.1. It seemed confusing and I thought Windows 7 was supposed to be able to do the same job easily. My machine wouldn't perform the operation. It turned out my profile was corrupted in some way some how.
I dumped my old profile and set up a new account. The Windows Media Player begin speedily ripping my CD's.
The subject program is free and I guess if there is no better option then it may be a perfectly good option but Windows Media Player, when working properly does the job and I can't imagine a simpler way than WMP.

"This is free because it sucks. A complete waste of time"

October 08, 2010  |  By DocVanDijk

 |  Version: Free CD to MP3 Converter 4.0

Pros

Nothing. OK you want more text before I submit - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Cons

No means, or direction, to get converted files into "output" file. A collosal waste of time.

Summary

I expected something simple - convert songs from a CD to MP3 or a format I could use on my computer. This program lacks direction and the wedsite is of no assistance whatsoever.
