Hi, Tom.


To Make CDex Work Again With The New Server,


1. Try to find CDex versions 151.exe, or 170b2_enu.exe. These are the versions that seem to work best.

2. Install, and open CDex.

3. Press ALT plus O for Options, then press ENTER on Settings.

4. Use CONTROL plus TAB to navigate to Remote Server Settings.

5. TAB to Add Site, and press ENTER.

6. TAB back to the address field, and put the following,


7. In the path, put,




8. Where the email address goes, put in a valid email address.


9. TAB to Submit, and press ENTER.

10. You will hear an error message telling you that it can't send email via http. Just ignore it.

11. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

12. Put in a commercial CD that would be in the database, then start CDex. See if the tracks are titled. If they are, it's working. If it says unknown, it's still not working. Something wasn't done right.

Even though I haven’t ripped CD’s for a while with CD.EXE, I always found the program to be quite accessible with Jaws.


Can you give me instructions for finding the new CD.EXE server?


I’ll save them for future reference.


Thank you!

I still use CDex, even though it was created back in the Windows XP days. You must change the server, though, because it has changed, and you won't get the music database the way it is set now. Write me off-list if you'd like the details for the new server.

I have some audio cd’s.  I would like to get them converted to .mp3.  Is there a preferred program that is jaws accessible to get this done?
