    I've used OSEx to extract the audio from an old dvd i had made (I want to remake the dvd with new menus etc, but have not got the original printed to tape... yeah back up, i know).
    The problem is that the audio file has extracted as a .pcm file and i can't seem to get it converted to .aiff, i tried mAC3dec but that frooze up and looking at other threads this seems to be a problem others have had.
    Does anyone know a good freeware/shareware app that will do the job for me?
    Much appreciated.

    I've found a program called "AIFF from PCM" which sounds like it should do the job but my conversions sound terrible, there's a glitchy, buzzing sound all the way through them.

    I use a Classic applescript called "PCM to AIFF Drop Convert" - works great

    Thanks,
    I'll give those a try. I think OSEx was having trouble recognising the audio on the dvd. It may be because it was originally exported as a final cut quicktime file for idvd, rather than the seperate mpeg2 and aiff option for dvd studio pro. Can't think why it would make the difference though.
