Movavi apparently does the job as well as 'Switch audio File Converter'. However before I decided to buy one of these I finally found a free way of doing this - a bit long but works:

1 - use handbrake to rip the DVD into MP4 format on my WXP machine, keep the audio uncompressed (would you believe I thought Handbrake was Mac only? What a moron I am ! whistle )

2 - use Audacity and load the MP4 rip (need to install the FFMpeg library)

3 - optional - cut the track into chapters if desired

4 - export the file(s) in AIFF

5 - use iTunes to open file(s), add to playlist and burn to audio CD

Steps 4 & 5 can of course be altered for whatever format/CD burning software you will use.

Whew - I can now listen to Porcupine Tree in the car on the drive back home from Montreal tonight! I am celebrating the little victories after a long, crappy day at work.

Mission accomplished! Well done. Shame that it takes so much effort, but now we know of a successful method. Thanks for sharing.

Good choice too. Do you have Deadwing? I really enjoy that one on DVD-A.

Rock_Head - a fellow Axiomoe from BC - got me going on Porcupine Tree. I have listened to much of their work through Slacker but only own the one concert disc so far. However last night I pre-ordered the new special edition Octane Twisted coming out in November - an early Bday present to myself.

Now heading for the car with my freshly burned CD's in hand - blown old Volvo car speakers, here I come!!!!! grin

Try this one:
http://www.avs4you.com/AVS-Audio-Converter.aspx

i tried ripping the sound from an AVI movie i have, and it does work, and very fast.
the ripping converts the audio file to the format of your choice.

by the way, i use their converters quite often and find they work very well and fast.

i just tried ripping a full length movie (vob files) to FLAC with their audio converter.
the whole thing took about 3 mins. and used my processor's 4 cores to do it.
it appears that the program can convert to about 9 audio formats.

it's extremely simple to do too.

Great info, thanks JB. Did it give you one big audio track or can it separate into the chapters for you, so you can skip back or forward on a CD player?

normally, it gives you a separate audio track for each original file, but there is a button to push is you want the program to make "one big file".

in case it's useful, the movie i ripped the sound from yesterday was "The Black Swan"; the resulting audio file in FLAC was 700 MB.
