Hi folks,

I have got almost the same problem, I also like to convert a .ac3 from a DVD to WAV. I installed the 'AC3 Direct Show Filter' and installed dBpoweramp's DirectShow filter where I had to add the .ac3 into the .txt file.

I can start the conversion, but it stopps immediatly and produces a 4 or 6kb file of junk?

anybody has got an idea?!

I am not sure I can help much in setting up the .ac3 conversion, never tried it myself. You can check the directshow is working correctly by having Windows Media Player try to play the track.
