dvd to audio cd

Posted on 2004-04-18
Last Modified: 2010-04-03
I have a DVD - it is a musical concert - is there anyway I can get the audio portion of the DVD onto a CD-R for listening purposes?  Maybe there is a way to play it on my DVD-R drive on my PC and "record" the audio to the HD while it is playing, then break down to tracks and burn to CD.  Maybe there is a faster or better way to accomplish this.  Any ideas?

Check the following links, convert/dvd/wav.php

Another way of extracting is to download dvd
decrypter( then after that download
the dvd decrypter will automatically select the files it needs from the
dvd just press the decrypt button

after that open up dvd2avi then open up the vob files the dvd decrypter
got from the dvd then save the project and name it. It will save 2 files a
d2v file and the whole movie in one wav file.

You will now need a sound editor(I use cool edit pro) to open the wav file
and then you can select quotes and edit them in the sound editor

It takes up a lot of memory to do it this way(around 5-8 gb)

Hope this helps

Probably there are many ways to do it. I dont know about the programs above.
The way I know is similar to making Divx out of a DVD.

At you have many guides that explain how to do what you are asking for.
You can make just stereo cd's, cd's with several audio channels, etc.
