    Re: Extracting Audio From DVDs

    Re: ...Blue Ray Audio - Rip to FLAC?

    Blu-Ray Audio is a Blu-Ray disk with mostly audio. You can play them in any Blu-Ray player.

    Better than SACD? Well, you can play them in any Blu-Ray player. Audiowise, you, I, and almost everyone...
  7. Re: Is ripping songs from a DVD a hassle?

    Use a proper tool like DVD Audio Extractor (http://www.dvdae.com/dvdae) and you will probably have to do very little post-processing.

    I ran into the same problem. When I run it under the debugger, I get a message box that says:

  10. Re: Does up-res'ing really improve the sound if the source is mp3 or AAC?

    Quick answer: No.

    Long answer: No. Where would the extra data come from? If it was lost, there is no getting it back.

    Re: Free

    Feel free to write your own version of dBpoweramp and give it away for free. There is nothing stopping you. You'll only need to spend about a decade doing nothing but working for free with no income...

    Re: Flac compression level 5

    I have used level 8 for everything since I first started using FLAC. I have never had any problems. So, I see no point in wasting disk space (especially since I only have 653 GB left on a 4 TB...

    Re: High resolution audio to cd quality

    Yes, you lose audio quality.

    No, you probably won't be able to hear the difference (44/16 was chosen wisely).
  14. Re: Issue getting car (Toyota) to sort audio properly (yes using disk & track*s)

    Do you have the track numbers set properly in the metadata? I just got a new 4Runner too, and I copied WMA files to a thumb drive and they all show and play in the correct order.

    Hope this...
  15. Re: Extracting HiRes Music Files from DVD

    I'm one of those who recommends DVD Audio Extractor. I use it to rip all DVD and Blu-Ray music. Works well (not as good as a dBpoweramp DVD extractor would work, but since there isn't one of those...
  16. Re: CD Ripper: Send AccurateRip Results to Online Database when program is closing.

    But it would make more sense to send the results at the end of a ripping session, so today's results are sent immediately. Otherwise they may sit in the queue for weeks until the next time something...

    Pretty much (but I'd be lying if I said I was 100% consistent on these things -- sometimes I just use whatever pops up).

  20. Re: Quick Boxset Artwork Question (help?)

    If the box is a collection of individual albums (such as a dozen Springsteen albums), I would used the correct album art for each CD in the box.

    Take a look at DVD Audio Extractor (DVDAE). http://www.dvdae.com/

  23. Re: Ripping errors on perfectly clean discs

    I second the idea of trying multiple drives.
