    Is it possible to rip part of a soundtrack from a DVD? My kids like to watch various Disney DVD's on occasion, and I thought it would be nice to have some of the songs from the movies on a CD to play in the car. Is that possible?

    Thanks for a simple solution!!

    If it was legal I suppose you could record it to analogue medium then transfer it to your HD and burn it from there to CD.
    Or if you have a CD writer in your stack system I presume you could reorder it analogue direct from the DVD?

    Thanks for the reply. I had thought about the analogue way involving many wires, but I thought there might be an all computer way using a DVD reader, some dodgy software, a CD writer and some sticky back plastic!

    As Spectre has a sticky up about backing up your DVDs I imagine it's ok to discuss this, comments moderators?

    Try checking out www.videohelp.com but basically you'll need to rip the DVD to your PC, strip out the audio then resample it to 44khz before using any brand of audio CD burning software to make a cd or encoding it to an mp3 for an ipod or similar device.


    Cheers

    As I only have a surround processor with no digital input at present and my DVD is 7 meter away. I send the digital signal to my Mini Disc from the DVD, which in turn sends it to the amp and processor. If I had a tape deck or CD Writer in the system it would be easy to copy the music.
    I still have a tape player in the car so burning to CD poses no problem. :rolleyes:

    Aha a moderator has passed this way. In that case here's what to do.

    Go to www.doom9.org and download, (freeware, this isn't warez), DVD2AVI and smartripper.

    Rip the DVD off onto your hard disk, (instruction on how to do this can either be found in Spectres guide elsewhere or on doom9.org or on videohelp.com).

    Then start up dvd2avi and add the vobs that you have ripped from the disk.

    Go into audio->dolby digital->decode and ensure its checked
    (this will get dvd2avi to create a .wav rather than an ac3 file)

    Go into file-> save project and type in a location and filename to save to. Once you start the process it will create a .d2v (a signpost file used for frameserving but you can ignore this for just using the audio) and a .wav.

    Close dvd2avi and open goldwave or soundforge and load the .wav file. Select tools/resample and resample the wave to 44khz. IMPORTANT! ensure you resample dont allow the software to just change the sampling frequency. If you do everything will play back verrrrryyyyy sloooowwwwwlllllyy.

    Save the 44khz .wav file.

    use nero audio cd wizard or other audio cd creation software, (such as nero mix etc), to import the 44khz .wav and off you go.

    Sounds complicated but once you get into the swing its pretty easy.

    If you get stuck PM me.

    Cheers
