Couple of weeks ago I had a major crash when my daughter turned on every light upstairs and then plugged in a hairdryer that could dry wet runways in airports. Popped a circuit breaker and totally corrupted XP so bad I had to reformat and reinstall. I saved all my best programs, except for a DVD movie audio ripper. It was free and really great. The author posted it on his website and was real proud of his program-as he had a right to be! It had a small monitor window that showed the movie, and I could move a slider and fast forward the movie to the place I wanted, and then twin tabs that I could set the start of the audio rip and the end. It even had a digital counter for ultra-fine point sets. It would accept either VOB rips or the DVD disk. Saved the rip to mp3 (I think other formats also). I know there are a lot of free movie audio rippers out there, but I am desperately trying to find that particular one. I like making a collection of movie themes from the DVD disks to listen to on my long drive to work. I can't remember the name of it - drat!
Please post any that you are using (freeware) so I can look at it and see if that is it. I probably will have to find another. come to think of it, I would appreciate suggestions from anyone who uses a ripper they like. Thanksalot, all!!
