    I've got a dilemma because I'm not sure of which software to use. :lmao:
    Right now I'm testing a music CD with all 3 of these programs. I really like foobar2000 because it's all nice, easy to use, simple and fast and it's latest update is in 2009 whereas EAC and CDex haven't been updated since at least 2007. Now I was wondering if anyone would be able to recommend any of these and why? Right now I think I'm going to stay with foobar2000. Tell me why I shouldn't or why I should. PS. I am ripping music CD's to mp3's, If I had loads of cash then I wouldn't really be posting this because I would then just go off and buy a few 1TB drives and rip all my music using foobar2000 to flac (which is lossless). :)

    EAC has best options u can even make CUE files with it. Cdex is good for simple rips tho, but if u wanna mess with codecs etc use EAC

    I couldn't be bothered to try CDex since it was a little time consuming to set everything up therefore I only used EAC and foobar2000. To be honest they the the exact same thing and I think I'm going to go for foobar2000. But the problem which arises here is that foobar2000 does not have any error checking. :( lol I think I'm going to check HA Forums. Thanks.
