the reason why you rip cd with CDEx slower then windows media player or winamp 
is, CDex rip a single track in 2 process. the first 
process is rip into .wav format and the second process is rip into .mp3. so let 
say your cd have 20 tracks on it, it will convert 40 
times in total. unlike win media player or others software, it will only direct 
convert to .mp3.

hope this helps.


Warmest Regards,

I have found that Cdex takes about 20 minutes to rip a CD on my system, a
Dell Dimension 5150 with a 3.4ghz processor and 2 gigs of RAM. One of my
buddies who has an ancient iMac says he can rip an entire CD in just a few
minutes. Another friend of mine says he can rip CD's using Windows Media
Player quicker than Cdex will, so I tested Windows Media Player and found no
appreciable difference in speed.  I don't really know what the deal is here.
As long as Cdex works, I'm cool with it. I'll just find something to do
while it's doing its thing.
