Drive Configuration[edit]

This guide will show you how to configure CDex for the appropriate scenario of extracting audio from your CD/DVD-ROM drive.

CDex uses the cdparanoia libaries for ripping

CD-ROM[edit]

This tab lists the number of CD/DVD-ROM drives you have in your computer. You can switch back and forth between your drives in order to decide which drive you want to rip with simply be selecting appropriate drive from the drop down menu.

Drive & Read offsets[edit]

CD-ROM drive type[edit]

It is best to use Autodetect unless you know specifically what type of drive you are using.

Ripping Methods[edit]

CDex uses the older cdparanoia 10.0 libaries for ripping by default (see cdparanoia page for the latest updates to the 10.2 being used by some applications).

  • Standard
  • Full, Paranoia
  • Overlap
  • No Verify
  • No Scratch

It is best to use Full, Paranoia mode unless otherwise specified (this is the default mode).

Overlap and No Verify will just check read boundaries of a buffer during extraction and are therefore not recommended. It is equivalent to the -Y option on the command-line.

No Scratch detection skips any error correcting and interpolation (compensation for missing gaps in the audio data) and should therefore only be used on CD's that are brand new or have minimal scratches. It is equivalent to using -Z option on the command-line or cdda2wav by default.
