    I have several music DVDs that I would love to listen to in the car. What I want to be able to do is record the audio tracks from the DVD as a wav file and then burn these onto a CD-R. Any advice would be welcome.

    I know of no way to rip them like CDs .. if there is ignore this waffle. :blush:

    With a computer-based player I'd loop-back line-out to line-in, with an external player just the same line-out on player to line-in on PC and use your favourite recorder utility. Not sure if there's a way to loop-back the digital signal into an audio card and then convert ... of coruse, it all depends on the quality of the audio card.

    If it makes any difference, the soundcard is a Yamaha SW1000XG.

    I was under the impression the XG was a synthesiser ... descended from the XG50 ... is it also a generic sound card? If so then if it has line-out/line-in you should be set, at worst you could use Windows Sound Recorder, though software that comes with soundcards is usually vastly superior.

    Can I suggest that you:

    1. Use DVD Decrypter to strip the AC3 audio stream.

    2. Search google for Besweet and BesweetGUI.

    Besweet will convert AC3 streams to a choice of audio formats.

    Ah, so THAT'S what Besweet is. :D

    Came across it recently but didn't persue it. Definitely sounds the way for Gadget to go.
