Can I rip Music DVD to i-tunes 6?

by rccoffee / March 3, 2006 10:41 AM PST

I have two CDs and 1 DVD Video. I would like to rip songs from each disc to make one CD that I can play in my car. I had no problems with the 2 CDs but the 1 song I want from the DVD Video won't rip. Can this be done. I have a Superdrive, OS X-Panther with i-tunes 6.0.2. up-to-date.

I think the answer is no, because

if the song you want is part of the movie, then it is encoded along with the movie.
To remove the song from the movie you would have to decode the DVD (remove the encryption) and figure out where the song was located.
You might want to Google for that sort of program as help in decrypting DVD's is not in keeping with the CNET policies.

Thank you for your help. I'd better see if I can buy the same songs on a CD. I had the same problem using i-tunes....just couldn't do it. If all else fails, I'll plug a microphone in the Windows computer and play it on the Mac. Good thinking for a newbie, huh?

Try Audio HiJack

This program simply sees whatever audio source is being run in the Mac, and it allows you to record manually, the audio from a DVD that plays in your Mac and it converrts the audio to an .aiff file that can easily be imported into iTunes then burned onto a CD.

Wiretap Pro also works

I have both programs (AudioHiJack and WireTap Pro) and both will manuall record audio from any source that plays through your Mac. Just click on "Record" when the disc plays the song you want, let it finish, stop recording, and your song file will be saved and you can import it into iTunes.
