Undoubetly the best MP3 player in this universe. Well, actually that is not
a true statement since there is probably no audio file format that this cool
thing does not support and MP3 is but one of them. In fact, I would incur the
wrath of millions of Winamp users if I classify it as a MP3 player. To it's
many fans Winamp is not a player. It's a lifestyle.
CDex is a is utility which can extract / rip Digital Audio
tracks from your Audio CD and save it as MP3 files onto your hard disk. For
those who are still wondering why they need such a software, its because of
this: an audio CD stores the track information in a WAV format. With this
format, lets say a 5 minute song takes about 30 to 40 MB of space on your
CD. If you directly store the track on your hard disk in this format, its
goodbye to your precious hard disk space. With CDex you can rip audio tracks
from the CD and easily store them on the hard disk in the
popular MP3 format which compresses the file 10 to 12 times to a more
manageable size of around 3 to 4 MB.

makes MSN and Yahoo messengers look like poor imitations. Need I say more?
