From the article, I could click on the speak here link which opened another web page. This has sentences to read. Now I was able to click on the unlabeled 0 button to let edge tell me to let access to the  mick, but I don’t think that site is super accessible . Yes, I can see I have sentences to r read but now what?

I haven’t downloaded it in a while, so I’ve got an old version I’m sure.

The last  stable version W was released in august 2020.

This is according to their homepage at:

CDex | Free CD to MP3 converter, ripper, FLAC, M4A, WMA, OGG, CD extractor

That's  good.  Since the developers haven't changed the data-base the program uses, it raises the question whether they are developing the program in any way any longer.  It doesn't sound like it.

The last time I ripped  using Windows Media Player, perhaps three years ago, it still named tracks.  I don’t know which data-base it uses and I don’t know if you can tell CDEX to use a different data-base.

 

In the old days, CDEX gave you a choice of two data-bases.  As I recall, there was something in options about it but I didn’t use the program much and it was a long time ago so it may have been somewhere else, though I don’t think so.

 

If you want to continue to use CDEX, I can tell you how to find a track list for most albums so you can manually name the tracks.  While you wouldn’t want to go through the work if you rip a lot of CDs, if you just rip one now and then, it might be worth doing for the convenience of continuing to use the same program.

Re: Maximizing in Google Chrome

Gene
 

No reason I am aware of.  But it is important to know in case you can’t get menus to come up.  Occasionally, I see such a question on lists because a user unintentionally caused a browser to be in full screen. 
Also, I just thought of this now.  If you are in full screen, closing and reopening the browser gets rid of it, but if you don’t know either of those things and you can’t bring menus up, you may think something is wrong with the program.
 
I don’t know if other programs have a full screen setting.

That causes a web page to take up the full screen and is not the same as maximizing the program.  It means that the page takes up all the room normally used by the rest of the program, such as tool bars, the menu bar, whatever is on the screen in addition to the web page usually.  You enter full screen in the standard way for browsers, with f11.  You leave full screen mode with f11 as well.

 

You will find full screen also in the menu, but that is the short cut command.

 

I suspect that you are asking about maximizing the entire program but since I don’t know that and for others who may be interested, I presented the above information.

 

Also, it is worth knowing that if you can’t get to the menus in a browser, you are likely in full screen mode.  As I said, the web page covers the entire area of the program window and the menu or menus can’t be made to come up.  In that case, press f11 to return to the standard method of display.  You can then open the menus.  As I said, f11 is the standard shortcut toggle in Windows browsers to turn full screen on or off, at least the browsers I’ve seen, Internet Explorer, firefox, and Chrome-based browsers.

Yes, but it happened twice, in two different rental cars.  I was there.  I
wondered if it was something the music industry did, and these cars had in

I'm not sure, since the last time I used it was at least five years ago.  I
burned some cds to take with me in a car my ex-sister-in-law rented, and we
discovered that if you put a cd you put together in the car's cd player, it
would capture the cd and not let it out.  Whereas, if you put a regular
bought cd in there, they would always come out when you hit the eject
button.  This happened with two different cars from that rental agency, and
two disks.  I told her I wouldn't give her any more of my hard work to
waste.  Pam.

Hi All!
Here are some instructions I got from Gene and I used for many years in
Media Player and Windows 7, although, it's been many many years since I
burned a cd.  I don't have any idea if these instructions will work in
Windows 10 though.
Janet

In the following instructions, both for ripping and burning, major new steps
start on new lines.
Here is how to rip a cd using Windows Media Player version 11, the Windows
7 version of version 11.

Place a cd in the drive and close it.
Do not have Windows Media Player opened when you do this.
If Media Player plays the cd automatically, stop play.  If it doesn't, start
the cd playing in Media Player.  If you don't know how to do this, ask here.
As I said, when play sstarts, stop play.  The stop command is control s.
Tab until you get to a button that says rip and press the space bar.
The cd will be ripped.  Look for it in the Music folder.  It may be in a
subfolder.
the files, by default, are ripped as wma files.
If you want to change the format, open Media Player.
Issue the command alt then type o.
Shift tab once.
Right arrow to rip cds.
Tab until you get to a formats list.
Up and down arrow to see available formats.
Select the one you want and press enter.
If you have enough room on your hard drive for wave files and are only
creating them to burn another cd, that format may produce better results
than others.  However, I don't know, when compared with wma lossless if
there is any audible loss in quality.

To burn a cd,
There are variations on how to burn a cd in Windows Media Player in Windows
7.  Here is one procedure:

Copy the files you want to burn to the clipboard.
Then put a blank cd in the cd drive.
Wait for about fifteen or twenty seconds to see if autorun comes up.  If it
does, close it with escape and if that doesn't work, use alt f4.
Now, open My Computer.
One way to open My Computer in Windows 7 is to open the start menu, type the
word computer, then down arrow to an item that just says computer.  If you
don't find it after down arrowing a few times, up arrow a number of times.
Once you find it, press enter.
Once you have opened My Computer, find the cd drive and press enter.
You will be placed in a dialog.  The field you are in allows you to name the
cd.  If you don't name it, the current date and time will be used.
After you either write something in this field or leave it as it is, tab
once.  You are now in a list of two radio buttons.  these are to choose the
kind of cd you want to create.
One radio button says Like a USB flash drive and the other says With a
cd/dvd player.
Select the cd/dvd player radio button and then press enter.
Now paste the files you want to burn from the clipboard just as if you were
copying files.  the files are being copied to a temporary folder.
You can now up and down arrow and see the files if you wish.
Back space once.  You should be at, but not in, the cd drive.  Don't press
enter.
Open the context menu and type the letter t.  That is the short cut command
to open the burning wizard.  .
You are now in a dialog.  You can name the cd here if you wish.  Or you can
leave the information unchanged.
After you give the disk a title or leave the information as it is, press
enter.
You are now in a list of two radio buttons.  One sayd make an audio cd.
the other says something like make a data cd.  You want to make an audio cd.
You should already be on that radio button.  If you are, press enter.
  If you aren't, move to it using the up and down arrows and press enter.
Windows Media Player opens.
You may have to alt tab to it.  In other words, you may not be moved
automatically to the player window once it opens.
When you are in the player window, issue the command alt s.
You won't hear any speech and nothing will seem to happen perhaps for as
long as one or two minutes, maybe a little longer.
Then the burn will begin.  You will only know when it begins by hearing the
cdrom start to make sounds.  There is no speech.
Let the burn continue.  Once it is finished, the cd door will automatically
open.
Close Media Player, remove the cd and close the drive.
Alt tab until you get back to My Computer, which is still opened.
You are at the cd drive in My computer.  I'm talking about the drive letter
such as d.
Press enter to open the drive.  The physical drive will not open.  You will
have opened it in My Computer and you can now see the files you burned.
Select the files and delete them, just as you delete any files, then close
my computer.

Gene




Peace Be With You.

That causes a web page to take up the full screen and is not the same as maximizing the program.  It means that the page takes up all the room normally used by the rest of the program, such as tool bars, the menu bar, whatever is on the screen in addition to the web page usually.  You enter full screen in the standard way for browsers, with f11.  You leave full screen mode with f11 as well.
 
You will find full screen also in the menu, but that is the short cut command.
 
I suspect that you are asking about maximizing the entire program but since I don’t know that and for others who may be interested, I presented the above information.
 
Also, it is worth knowing that if you can’t get to the menus in a browser, you are likely in full screen mode.  As I said, the web page covers the entire area of the program window and the menu or menus can’t be made to come up.  In that case, press f11 to return to the standard method of display.  You can then open the menus.  As I said, f11 is the standard shortcut toggle in Windows browsers to turn full screen on or off, at least the browsers I’ve seen, Internet Explorer, firefox, and Chrome-based browsers.

Press, Windows key + up arrow, or, hold down the, Alt key, and tap the spacebar to open the system menu, and press the letter, X.  You can also press, Alt + spacebar, and down arrow to, Maximize, and press enter, but if it says, Unavailable, this means the screen is already maximized.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Re: Ripping and Burning A Cd From Gene, In Windows 7.

Yes, but it happened twice, in two different rental cars. I was there. I wondered if it was something the music industry did, and these cars had in them to convince you to use only cds that were professionally made. I can't think of any other thing it could have been. Pam.

That doesn't make sense.
There's no way one cd would go in there and not come out and another...

I'm not sure, since the last time I used it was at least five years ago. I
burned some cds to take with me in a car my ex-sister-in-law rented, and we
discovered that if you put a cd you put together in the car's cd player, it
would capture the cd and not let it out. Whereas, if you put a regular
bought cd in there, they would always come out when you hit the eject
button. This happened with two different cars from that rental agency, and
two disks. I told her I wouldn't give her any more of my hard work to
waste. Pam.

I was able to rip with media player with windows seven until they kept
making changes. But I never ended up being able to put together a cd and
burn it with windows media. I first used EZ cd creator, then after that, I
used something else, but I forget what it was. Pam.

Hi All!
Here are some instructions I got from Gene and I used for many years in
Media Player and Windows 7, although, it's been many many years since I
burned a cd. I don't have any idea if these instructions will work in
Windows 10 though.
Janet

In the following instructions, both for ripping and burning, major new steps
start on new lines.
Here is how to rip a cd using Windows Media Player version 11, the Windows
7 version of version 11.

Place a cd in the drive and close it.
Do not have Windows Media Player opened when you do this.
If Media Player plays the cd automatically, stop play. If it doesn't, start
the cd playing in Media Player. If you don't know how to do this, ask here.
As I said, when play sstarts, stop play. The stop command is control s.
Tab until you get to a button that says rip and press the space bar.
The cd will be ripped. Look for it in the Music folder. It may be in a
subfolder.
the files, by default, are ripped as wma files.
If you want to change the format, open Media Player.
Issue the command alt then type o.
Shift tab once.
Right arrow to rip cds.
Tab until you get to a formats list.
Up and down arrow to see available formats.
Select the one you want and press enter.
If you have enough room on your hard drive for wave files and are only
creating them to burn another cd, that format may produce better results
than others. However, I don't know, when compared with wma lossless if
there is any audible loss in quality.

To burn a cd,
There are variations on how to burn a cd in Windows Media Player in Windows
7. Here is one procedure:

Copy the files you want to burn to the clipboard.
Then put a blank cd in the cd drive.
Wait for about fifteen or twenty seconds to see if autorun comes up. If it
does, close it with escape and if that doesn't work, use alt f4.
Now, open My Computer.
One way to open My Computer in Windows 7 is to open the start menu, type the
word computer, then down arrow to an item that just says computer. If you
don't find it after down arrowing a few times, up arrow a number of times.
Once you find it, press enter.
Once you have opened My Computer, find the cd drive and press enter.
You will be placed in a dialog. The field you are in allows you to name the
cd. If you don't name it, the current date and time will be used.
After you either write something in this field or leave it as it is, tab
once. You are now in a list of two radio buttons. these are to choose the
kind of cd you want to create.
One radio button says Like a USB flash drive and the other says With a
cd/dvd player.
Select the cd/dvd player radio button and then press enter.
Now paste the files you want to burn from the clipboard just as if you were
copying files. the files are being copied to a temporary folder.
You can now up and down arrow and see the files if you wish.
Back space once. You should be at, but not in, the cd drive. Don't press
enter.
Open the context menu and type the letter t. That is the short cut command
to open the burning wizard. .
You are now in a dialog. You can name the cd here if you wish. Or you can
leave the information unchanged.
After you give the disk a title or leave the information as it is, press
enter.
You are now in a list of two radio buttons. One sayd make an audio cd.
the other says something like make a data cd. You want to make an audio cd.
You should already be on that radio button. If you are, press enter.
If you aren't, move to it using the up and down arrows and press enter.
Windows Media Player opens.
You may have to alt tab to it. In other words, you may not be moved
automatically to the player window once it opens.
When you are in the player window, issue the command alt s.
You won't hear any speech and nothing will seem to happen perhaps for as
long as one or two minutes, maybe a little longer.
Then the burn will begin. You will only know when it begins by hearing the
cdrom start to make sounds. There is no speech.
Let the burn continue. Once it is finished, the cd door will automatically
open.
Close Media Player, remove the cd and close the drive.
Alt tab until you get back to My Computer, which is still opened.
You are at the cd drive in My computer. I'm talking about the drive letter
such as d.
Press enter to open the drive. The physical drive will not open. You will
have opened it in My Computer and you can now see the files you burned.
Select the files and delete them, just as you delete any files, then close
my computer.

Gene




Peace Be With You.
