Hi,

Could you please address me to info about how to transform my DTS Audio CD to a 'normal' CD that I could play on my CD player?

I need:

1. Instructions
2. Software

Thanks,

Boaz.

Best thing to do is to select "Wave" or "Wave/Directsound" as your recording option on your Volume Control on your computer (the little yellow speaker on the right-hand side of your taskbar), play the Audio DVD back in a player whilst at the same time recording it through an application, save the file then burn it to a CD.

Default Could you elaborate?

Thank you for you're reply. Could you, though, elaborate on the subject? I didn't find the Wave Out thing in my audio mixer window. I'm using PowerDVD as a player. How can I record the sound to a file?

Thank you,

Boaz.

Double click on the speaker symbol on the taskbar which loads the volume options, select Options on the menubar and Properties from the list, and then select Recording under the "Adjust Volume for" box. Make sure "Wave" or "Wave/DirectSound" is selected in the list of options in the white box that appears, then press "OK". A list of possible recording devices now occupies the Sound Volume window and the window itself should now be called "Record Control". You should now be able to select one of these devices to record from, so select "Wave" or "Wave/DirectSound". Now play back the DVD Audio through any DVD Playback device on your PC without ripping it to the harddrive first, and you should be able to go to any recorder program and record and it should record the sound that is being produced.

Default Old sound card maybe

Thanks, Matt, for your reply.

It seems that I have an old sound card or something (sound blaster 16 PnP), because when I select Recording on the properties page of the volume control window, there isn't any drop list available.

I'm attaching an image file of what I see.

Thank you,


Boaz.

OK, we'll probably have to do it the digital way then by using a program like AC3 Decode. You can download this DOS program from http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/do...ac3decode.html, and you can then download its GUI to use in Windows from http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/do...nidin_gui.html. Simply select the input files and it will output the WAV.

Default The problem is I'm dealing with DTS

Matt,

Let's start with the CD. Windows only sees CDA files in the CD, while AC3DECODE wants AC3 files. Also, the CD actually contains DTS files, not AC3.

I'm sorry if I sound very newbie, but I am.

Thank you,

Boaz.

You need to rip the files off of the DVD with an appropriate program, SmartRipper should do, I think it supports DVD Audio's although I'm not totally sure cuz I don't have any. Once you've ripped, then you can extract the audio using something like FlaskMPEG.
