    audio hijack is your friend!

    very easy to use....play your dvd..tell AH to 'hijack' the sound...output to a ton of different formats. i used it all the time for exactly what you need

    well worth the cash.

    nope. record only what you want.

    i'm telling you, it's worth the small price.

    $16... not bad at all ok.. the pro is $32 and allows you to output to many formats..that is the one i have.

    Haven't done it myself, but can't you use something like Handbrake to rip the DVD and then MPEG Streamclip to grab the sound from it?

    Sorry...not an expert here...just throwing out a possible solution here.

    You could always try MTR and bbdemux to give you the audio in the original format from the DVD, if it has PCM or MPEG-2 audio you could easily recompress that as the format of your choice. For AC-3 you'd have to have the right codec installed to make it work...
