One method of ripping just the audio from a DVD
Authored by: Dr. T on Jan 19, '10 10:39:50AM

The easiest way to rip audio from a DVD is with MPEG Streamclip. It rips audio off the main feature of the DVD and allows you to save it as AIFF or other formats. You can then separate the tracks and edit the audio with Amadeus or some other audio editor. MPEG Streamclip is fast: it took only 9 minutes to rip 96 minutes of DVD audio and save it in AIFF format.

You also can use WireTap or other audio capture applications. WireTap will capture audio (in the background) and save it in the common audio formats. You can set up start and stop times and let it work while you do something else.

It works well IME. Once you have the AIFF file you can use other apps to convert it to whatever format you want.

If you don't have the other programs, or don't want to use them, since Streamclip is also an editing program and has a batch list function, you can just use Streamclip itself to edit the stream down to one song, export the audio, revert the file, isolate the next song, export the audio, etc. Then just import the individual songs into iTunes.
Relax, it's only ones and zeroes.
