Download.com Staff Nov 8, 2008

Free CD Ripper lets you extract audio from a compact disc into most popular file formats, including MP3 and OGG formats, as well as WMA and WAV. Further you can convert the files between these formats. This program proves you can still get a decent CD-ripping application without spending any money. Its stylish main window is not only attractive, but also very functional, with large, clearly labeled icons for all actions.Still, we were glad to find the utility can rip files using the space-efficient VBR compression scheme. This program comes complete with powerful feature-rich recorder included in the package. The output format for the recorder can be pre-set. The user has to select WAV, WMA, MP3, or OGG file as the output and set the quality as desired. However, since you have to keep pressing play every time you want to hear a new track, we don't recommend using it as a dedicated jukebox app.

In our tests, the program performed all the functions flawlessly when run under Windows 2000. As soon as we tried to test it under Windows XP, the application crashed and sometimes it crashed the OS too. Under Windows 2000 the app demonstrated good speed, making it easy for us to recommend this app for Windows 2000 users only who are on the hunt for a quality, cost-free CD-extraction solution. If you are Windows XP users, keep away from this program.
