Easy-to-use CD and DVD ripper to backup your music and data disks
 
2.5.5 (See all)
NetSDK Software

Many of us have many CDs and DVDs, and some of them may be valuable for some reason. Thus, we may want to backup those disks so we can maintain the original in mint state. This program does exactly that. It can rip your music and data CDs and DVDs. In the case of music and sound disks, the program allows you to choose the output format. You can save the resulting files as MP3, OGG, WMA, BIN and AAC format. The program has an easy-to-use interface with huge icons, so it can be used even by inexperienced users. Nevertheless, if you are an expert user, then you can customize some of the program's properties, such as type of bitrate (constant or variable), as well as the type of stereo mode. Also, you can download information about the songs you are ripping by clicking on the FreeDB button. This action will connect to the FreeDB website, which contains a massive database of songs and disks titles.
The application boasts about having a high ripping speed, but I didn't noticed any difference in speed between this program and others, even freeware. Thus, this is not a real advantage.
The shareware version of the program shows a 'nag screen' at startup, and also when you finish riping a disk and when you close the program. If you want to get rid of it, then you need to register your copy and pay the corresponding fee.
