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!

    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.
