    Mac the Ripper 4 is still available as Donationware and as we know Handbrake is also available as is Audacity.

    I have had partial success using method 2 from 3 Ways to Rip DVD Audio to MP3 Using VLC Media Player - wikiHow - Thanks MightyGem.
    Not sure I have let the process complete fully - nothing actually indicated "finish" It did indicate 2hrs52 worth of data which is the same as dvd duration. I have a file on my desktop now named Camelot.mp3 about 3.78 GB
    Haven't been able to play that yet - have only heard a few static type squeaks!!
    Do i have to do something more to this before it is ready to play in itunes or similar programme
    I am from UK.

    What format is it in currently. It will need to be MP3 for iTunes.

    I think there is something wrong here.
    A 3.78 GB mp3 file is quite large, certainly a lot more than 3 hours worth of sound.
    I have TF card with 326 songs on it and it uses less than 2 GB of space.
    When I check my mp3 files, 10 MB equals about 7 minutes of music, so in your case almost 3 hrs of music should take about 250MB

    It could be that your file is .mp4 which could be about the right size depending on resolution, or an aiff audio file which takes a lot more storage or just plainly "junk"

    PS: I quickly read through the WikiHow article you referred to - they don't mention DRM protection at all.

    I am betting that those squeaks you heard is the DRM interfering with the conversion process. That description would pretty closely match the results I got recently with Handbrake.

    I Have sucessfully done this several times with Audio Hijack 3. It will record high quality mp3 or ACC directly from DVD player app. or system audio. You choose which. Just hit record when the song starts and quit when it's over. Easy as pie, Nothing extra is recorded. Great program very versatile, It has a wide range of uses. I have used it for many years.

    Good Luck

    I don't know where Holclo lives, but there are members here I noticed from all over the world.
    What you quoted as far as copyright law is concerned applies to the US but not necessarily to other countries.

    Thanks krs, you beat me to posting the same thing, but it is quite a valid and critical point.

    BTW: wasn't it one of the QuickTime.app versions that could "suck out" some protected music to use for personal use???, the one when Steve Jobs went to war against the music industry and their high-handed ways.
