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

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.)
