Taking music track from DVD

Hello to all :D

Is it possible to remove just the music from a DVD and burn it onto a regular music CD to listen. If so, if special software is needed, can someone suggest some some (preferably legit and free).

    So, there is a single long audio track that plays during a movie -- not a collection of songs with a voice track over top of it. Blu-ray discs are a little fancier, but are essentially the same.

    Can you rip the audio from a DVD? Yes, but it's surprisingly convoluted; I did it for my wife for Koyaanisqatsi. Do you want just a song or do you want the whole soundtrack (or just a scene?)

    its the whole audio track. Its an Adrea Bocelli concert CD and I wanted to get the entire musical portion from it.

    So, what I did was rip the DVD to my hard drive, and then opened it in VirtualDub on Windows. Note that I've been a mac user for about 4.5 years now, so there might be a better solution, but essentially what you do is rip the DVD to your computer, making sure that your ripping software encodes it in a "simple" format like .avi. Then you take software and split out the video & audio.

    An alternative solution (and one that might be faster and easier if this is a one-time thing -- I do actually have friends that just listen to the audio track on DVDs as if they were cinematic "books" for movies they're familiar with. And with director commentaries) is to use one of those "record the output of your soundcard" apps and simply let the DVD (or the rip of the DVD) play in your computer for the 90 minutes or so that it is. It's not as high tech, but the quality should be identical and you may very well spend 90 minutes trancoding video files anyway, depending on the speed of your computer and your familiarity with the software you try out.
