Save Your Tunes Part 1

Music CDs are going the way of 8-tracks and cassette tapes. Very few people have portable CD players any more. Instead, everyone has iPods, iPhones and MP3 players now.

There is a way to turn CDs into music files. It’s called a CD extractor or a ripper. CD rippers extract the files from music CDs and turn them into audio files on a computer. Once the files are on the computer they can be played or uploaded into music devices like any other audio files.

At Uberdownloads.com, we have many different CD rippers, each of them good in their own way see them here, but if you want a CD extractor that is top-of-the-line free ware and easy to use then we suggest CDex.

CDex is a good example of a CD extractor program because CDex has a simple interface designed for the inexperienced, casual user.
