View Full Version : Exracting Audio from VCD's

10th June 2005, 14:09
I have a music VCD. I want to create a normal audio CD out of the sound track so I can listen to it in the car. Can someone point out which program will allow me to do this ? A pointer to a written guide would also be nice.

PS : I have tried BeSweet but I am sure that program is for ripping soundtrack out of DVD's only. My VCD has a .DAT file format.

PPS : Moderator sir, apologies if this post is in the wrong forum.

Most primitive way: copy the dat to your harddisk, then use tmpgenc to demux the audio (file->mpeg tools->de-multiplex). You will end up with an mp2 audio file which you can then convert to whatever audio format you like.

Imho, just copiyng .dat to hdd and then renaming them to .mpg will do the trick.
Then .mpg can be simply converted to wav(if needed), using lame or something
similar, or just directly burned to cd(afaik, nero supports directburn mp2 to cda).

Thanks for the tip. I have tried it and it works. Now all I have to do is find a working copy of TMPGenc.

Thanks again.

You can use ReJig for demultiplexing

Abond .... Thanks for that. It looks very easy to use. It might just do what I want it to.

DGIndex 140b7 can rip the audio from a VCD.
