Help Needed Dvd To Cd

Recommended Posts

I'm having a brain lapse. I recorded a short song from cable onto a DVD via my DVD recorder.

What would be an easy way to turn that into an audio format that I could put on a CD to play in my car?

I'd prefer to make the change via my PC if possible.

Thanks in advance,

FFI

I may be reading this wrong, but it sounds as though you can just download it onto your computer as an MP3 or wma and just turn around and burn it onto a cd.

Good point Norcal I hadn't thought to check the obvious so I did just now.

For 3 songs it made 6 files 2 ea of an IFO, BUP & VOB

When I click on one of the VOB files a program runs on my computer ( Cyberlink Power DVD ) and one song automatically plays.

When I click on one IFO file it launches the same program but comes up with a menu type of deal that has all 3 song choices. Note: This is just like it comes up on my DVD recorder minus the Cyberlink DVD program.

Another VOB file launches the program but just shows sort of an advertisement for the program.

The other IFO file launches the program and the menu with the 3 songs comes up ( again just like it comes up on my DVR ).

Note: My DVD recorder is a fairly unit.

I imagine that my explanations are clear as mud, my apologies in advance on that.

Sounds like you need software that will allow you either record the audio that is on the DVD or software that will allow you to extract the audio from the DVD video files. Google is your friend. http://lifehacker.com/322151/rip-audio-from-a-dvd-to-mp3-with-free-dvd-mp3-ripper

... Or we could give him the answer and save him from googling.

Anyway, another way to do this would be to get a program called Audacity. Audacity will record ANY sounds that are coming out of your speakers and turn it into an MP3. The only downside is there's no fast way of doing this, you have to listen to the whole song/audio of whatever you want to save. It's better than nothing and will get you by (good for pulling YouTube audio too).

Oh, it's free too.

Thanks guys,

Well at least I don't feel quite so silly. Although doable it apparetnly wasn't a no-brainer simple deal that I was missing.

I did think of one other possibility, I can also put the DVD in the recorder and play it to the tv. I can probably take the audio out to my pc if I have audio recording software already on my pc.

I'll also look in a couple of the free software packages mentioned.

Thanks again,

FFI
