I would head over to videohelp.com and check out their software and tutorials.

But keep in mind that DVD audio is usually lossy. So unless you're sure it hasn't been compressed I would keep the audio for yourself and not spread it around.

good point. you can check the audio codec using gspot (http://www.audiophilia.net/gspot.shtml). Most DVDs are AC3, which is lossy .

I've got a solution, although it will cost you some hardware upgrade time and approx. $100 US dollars.

Check into http://www.creativelabs.com and look up Audigy 2 ZS.

It has 16 and 24 bit audio recording in mp3, wav and wma.
It also has a DVD player.

The player can and will record DVD audio, you'd have to let the DVD play while recording. I did this with many a DVD concert release.

DVD Audio (Queen, "A Night At The Opera" & "The Game" can come out in 24 bit but I've yet to find a DVD/CD burner that can, especially on CD create the 24 bit, I've gone with 16 bit.

or if on low budget and don't need a digital transfer... just plug the analog rca out of dvd player into whatever.. cd burner, tape deck, etc... and record away. If it's for casual listening you probably won't notice a difference in this method and a pure digital copy. Yes if you intend playing it through a high-end audio system than a digital copy will certainly sound better but for most things it won't... the system will be the limiting factor in terms of quality.

I think I've said it before... (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showpost.php?p=102847&postcount=2)

And the previous two posts in this thread actually aren't great methods at all. Making an analog copy (whether through a soundcard or through RCA cables from an external player) is both slower and of lesser quality. You can do it, but it would only work in real-time. Why in God's name would you want to do that? When I rip a full-length DVD, it takes me about 10 minutes to rip, maybe 5 more to demux the desired track, and about 10-15 minutes to downmix (2 channels), resample (44.1 khz), and encode the audio. Done and done.

1) That is just retarded
2) Creative/Audigy is crap
3) Who are you spamming for?

ImToo DVD Audio Ripper

XMPEG 5

DVD Audio Ripper makes each chapter of the DVD into a WAV file. XMPEG extracts the entire audio portion as 1 big WAV file. You would then have to use a program such as GoldWave to split the file into tracks.

Fellas,
I use Diamond Cut 6 (DCSix) for extracting / ripping DVD audio.
Brilliant for all round editing, manipulation and CD preparation as well.

VirtualDub will also work [i think that's the name of it--its been a few years] plus its freeware...

but as a few have noted before, you should only extract audio from a DVD for personal use...99 times outta 100, its gonna be lossy [ac3]

word to that. some concert DVDs - especially U2 concert DVDs - will have a PCM track. but for the most part, you have to do an AC3>WAV conversion in the chain at some point.
