Use CDex, a free software to extract Digital data from an Audio CD. Generally known as CD rippers or CDDA utility, these software can be used to extract data from two or more digital sources, which can be later merged into one file using an audio merge software.
The extracted audio files can be saved in plain WAV file format. CDex supports many encoders, to name a few :
> Lame MP3 encoder
> Internal MP2 encoder
> APE lossles audio format
> Ogg Vorbis encoder
> The Windows MP3 encoder (Fraunhofer MP3 encoder)
> NTT VQF encoder
> FAAC encoder
> Windows WMA8 encoder
> File tag formats like ID3V1 and ID3V2 tags
Apart from extracting the audio files you can compress the files too. Some of the other features of CDex are :
> Multiple tracks can be recorded directly
> Album information from the cdplayer.ini file can be read or stored and vice-versa.
> Album information from local and/or remote CD Database (CDDB) can be read and stored and vice-versa.
> If you CD drive supports, then CDex supports CD Text as well.
