    I just got my first mac a few days ago and I'm amazed at how easy everything is. I was putting my CD collection on iTunes and was thinking if I could put some of my DVD's on iTunes in mp3 or whatever format. They're some DMB DVD's in case you're wondering why I would want only audio.

    No. You cannot do this with iTunes, which only rips music CDs. You'd have to get a seperate tool and violate provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 to do what you want to do, and you wouldn't want to do that, now would you? ;-)

    or you could just record the audio from a DVD into your Mac and use iTunes to convert it to a suitable size mp3 or whatever. all you need is an audio input on your Mac and simple wave editor.

    Well considering that we don't know what country he's from, this may not be an issue :)

    United States.

    I only asked the question because it seemed like anything is possible with Macs, so why not ask and see if it could be done.
