Hi all. I am new to the forum and a little inexperienced as far as digital audio is concerned, so please forgive me if my question is naive. I am looking to extract the 5.1 audio portion from a few of the Genesis boxed set DVDs and re-burn them to DVD-A. I have a new Acura RDX that has an awesome Elliot Scheiner-designed sound system but it won't play dual discs that have both DVD-A and DVD-video. I have done some scouting around but I haven't seen a solution that is understandable to me. First step seems to be to extract the 5.1 audio tracks from the DVD using [moderation: name removed], but it is not clear to me how to get them burned and playable in 5.1 on a DVD-A. One option may be to encode them using SurCod for DVD-DTS to make a DTS-CD but the encoding software has a hefty price tag ($250). It would also be cool if I could extract the 5.1 audio from some of my other concert DVDs for playback on DVD-A but I am out of my league here and would appreciate any guidance.

Cheers, and thanks in advance,

Rick

Hi and welcome. Please read the Terms of Service, to which you verified agreement during registration, and note that #9 proscribes any discussion of methods to circumvent copy-protection. DVDs use such technology, so extraction of their media cannot be discussed here. Any replies should refrain from referring to said process or otherwise face moderation.

Talk of authoring is fine, however.

There is free option for burning them onto DVD-A, http://www.korguser.net/audiogate/en/index.html. You have to link it with your Twitter account, though, and it will tweet everything you have been doing with it - which album is burned or transcoded... it can burn DSD discs, but I have never done it, so I cannot verify it.

I don't have a DVD-Audio player, and I've never attempted to make a DVD-A disc, but Wikipedia has a Wikipedia List of DVD-A Authoring Software.

But, you may not need to do that... If you have a non-encrypted AUDIO-TS folder, you can simply burn that folder to a blank DVD-R and you're done!

Are you sure those discs have DVD-A? DVD-A should be in the AUDIO_TS folder, so check to see if the AUDIO_TS folder is empty. (I don't see any reason why the player wouldn't simply ignore the VIDEO_TS folder which contains the audio & video for the regular video-DVD.)

If your player can't play Video DVD, it's very-unlikely that it can decode DTS, since DTS is not part of the DVD-A stancard. (Some video-DVD players can't decode DTS either, and all DVDs with DTS are required to also have either an LPCM or Dolby AC3 track, which all video-DVD players are requred to support.)
