    I'm wanting to know if there is a method or a program that will allow me to copy just the audio from a DVD into either a WAV or MP3???

    You will need SmartRipper or some other program to rip the dvd to your harddrive 1st though, so you will also need alot of hdd space (plan on about 10 gigs).

    If you have a dvd player hooked up to the tv & sterio you can do it using 'line in'. All you need is the cable & a recording program.

    I would use Smartripper also...(You'll have to change the default settings).

    You would rip the DVD to your HDD to a folder ending up with 2 files. An .m2v file and an .ac3 file. Rather than .VOB files.

    Use AC3decode to convert the .ac3 file to WAV or another encoder for .mp3.

    Depending on the size of the DVD and the specs of your machine it should take about an hour or less to complete.

    but, if they use besweet, they can select the PCM stereo track which is not nearly as compressed as the ac3 track. (and it removes a step)

    dreamliner...I hadn't heard of the Besweet software, looks pretty good.

    I still don't see the extra step though???

    The few times I've done this I've used Total Recorder, outputs to wav or MP3. Very easy.
