Project used to be opensource. The software is now released as freeware which contains installer ridden malware. The project also has had a interesting past possibly being hijacked by rouge third-parties, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CDex#History . For the latest clean portable version, see https://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/cdex_portable . For a clone of the source code, see https://github.com/elha/CDex and for old clean builds up to version 1.75 see https://filehippo.com/download_cdex/1227/

Goodbye to a once decent CD ripper

about CDex and Exact Audio Copy, foobar2000 · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I'm [still] on Windows 7 while Win 10 is already knocking on my door. I haven't ripped my CDs for a long time so I didn't know that CDex is already at version 1.7x. This latest version from their homepage had problem seeing ASPI driver located in its own directory - and didn't want to use the native drivers. I used external CD/DVD combo USB drive by the way.

So I tried the good old version 1.51 of CDex that always worked fine in my WinXP days (it also worked fine on Xubuntu Linux via Wine). It ripped a CD no problem. Though I'm aware that using old version of software on a Windows system is not that safe. That's why I'll stick to ripping my CDs in Foobar player from now on.

So my opinion is still positive, but I'd recommend ExactAudioCopy [EAC] or Foobar built in function instead - if you have the ASPI problem.
