Free MP3 CD Ripper is a powerful and easy-to-use CD ripper that helps you transfer all of your CD albums to MP3 format, which can then be used on portable devices.
Free MP3 CD Ripper can also rip to various other formats including WAV, WMA, OGG, FLAC and APE, although the speed of the conversions differs slightly according to which format you've selected. Alternatively, you can rip to MP3 and then use the inbuilt audio converter to rip to these formats, although this is a much more time consuming process.
The useful thing about Free MP3 CD Ripper is that it allows you to retrieve info about your albums from CDDB databases, saving you a hell of a lot of time when labeling your music. The program thus automatically labels your MP3 collection with ID3 tags.
As a way to verify whether your tracks have converted properly, there's a built in CD player that allows you to preview CD tracks after the CD ripping process. It's very easy to use and you'll be prompted whether you want to use it by Windows as soon as you enter a CD. The info retrieved form the CDDB database can be very hit and miss but generally it finds the right info.
If you're looking for a comprehensive CD ripper then there are better solutions out there, but as a simple and functional application, Free MP3 CD Ripper does the job.
