CDex is CD Ripper or a CDDA utility that can extract the data directly (digital) from an Audio CD. The resulting audio file can be a plain WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder. It supports many encoders that include Lame MP3 encoder, Internal MP2 encoder, APE lossles audio format, Ogg Vorbis encoder, The Windows MP3 encoder (Fraunhofer MP3 encoder), NTT VQF encoder, FAAC encoder, Windows WMA8 encoder.
Also the WAV files which are present on the hard drive can be converted to a Compressed Audio File and vica versa. CDex also supports many audio file tag formats like the ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags, which can be automatically inserted as part of the ripping process. CDex is a Freeware and supports all Windows Versions, even the old Windows 95. You can download CDex from here.
