Just wondering if anyone is familiar with taking an audio track off of a DVD to create an mp3.

We need a particular song for our wedding and the version we like is only available on a DVD.

For our PCs, we use DVD Audio Ripper ($29). For our Macs, we use Audio Hijack Pro ($32).

However, the cheapest way to do it would be to record the audio output of your TV or DVD into the mic or line input of your computer. You could get the right cable for about $5 at Radio Shack.

The right cable is a mini-stereo to mini-stereo cable.
EDIT: Leroy's response below is better; I had a brain-freeze.

If one has a Creative (What U Hear) or Realtek (Stereo Mix) sound card then one does not even need a cable. Couple a cable/no-cable setup with Audacity and you're set.

Most DVD and TVs have RCA plugs for audio ins and outs, so he probably needs a stereo RCA to stereo mini Y cable, but I didn't want to assume anything about the setup.

Thanks for the advice.

I actually made it through the complicated (for me) process shown here, which involved downloading many programs and going through them in order, on a crappy computer no less.

Now I'm listening to the track on different CD players around the house.

This smells like a VBA problem. VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is the language used for automating MS-Office. MS provides an object model API for every office application that's pretty well documented. (example - http://msdn.microsoft.
