try uninstalling then re-installing.

if that doesn't work, switch to EAC (exact audio copy). It is the best ripper out there, period. And the user interface is almost the same as CDex. You can find the guide for EAC in my sig below...

For the best quality mp3s use EAC (exact audio copy) to rip your audio CDs and LAME to encode them. Follow this guide:

Hi jimraft,
From within CDex, go Options > Settings > CD Drive and your CD drive(s) should be listed in the dropdown window.
If Windows 'identifies' them, they will be in the list. That's it.
CD-Rom Drive Type is always 'generic', and the Auto-Detect will not detect your drive further.
This feature is a legacy from the 90's when specific devices used proprietary features, and was included for compatibility - but it is not useful these days.
