how to copy from DVD??
Others may have further suggestions???
Actually, there's a bunch of ways. It easiest with Linux, but you can do it with Windows if you have to:
The thing to remember is- if your CD player in the car does not play MP3, then you need to get the raw audio in WAV format. It's not too difficult, and most of the suggestions (convert to MP3) extract a WAV file as part of the process, so you just skip the last step of converting the WAV to MP3. An audio CD is simply a bunch of WAV files in a list.
Oh, and the other thing to remember is this is not legal in NZ.
Oops, well spotted Ame. I meant to edit that bit afterwards but anyway I've done it now

Hmm. How can there be further suggestions if you have already described the only way?
is it possible to just extract the music from the legally bought, i own 100% dvd.
i tried it through windows media player with not any luck at all and my cd player does play mp3 music as i have already converted music to mp3, this saves me using my original one so it would not get damaged
thanks for the help so far
Personally, I have never tried to do this, so I can't recommend any particular way as being any better or worse than the others.
Give it a go, and post the results back here. I would be interested to hear how you get on
But your computer has a DVD drive in it, right?

the thing is, my computer is at one end of the house and the dvd is at the other.
There are essentially two ways to achieve this:
1) Play the DVD and record the audio. Much like recording a cassette tape, except that you are recording digitally on the computer.
Can be done with the DVD at the other end of the house if you have a looooooong audio cable. Can also be done if you have a DVD drive in the computer by connecting audio out to audio in with a cable, or electronically by using software to route the audio from the player software to the recorder software.
2) The audio and video on the DVD are just chunks of data. You can use software to read the data for the audio and convert that to a WAV file or an MP3 file.
You can't do this if you don't have a DVD drive in the computer.
Yes, and those links at LifeHacker will probably show you something that will work for you, or give you some ideas about what to Google for.

Oh, and it is true that you own the DVD (the bit of plastic) but you do not own the right to copy the content. People do it all the time, but it's illegal. Write to your MP to change the law to allow it- seriously.
