copying and burning DVD audio track

  Yimbo 17:13 20 Jul 2014

I have a DVD of an event which I attended, and I'd like to be able to burn a CD of the audio track only. The DVD opens with RealPlayer Cloud, but I can't find a way to record and store the DVD in order to be able to do anything else with it. Ideally, I think I'd prefer to open it using Windows Media Player, but I can't seem to do this either.

I have a new computer, Windows 8.1, which I'm not really all that familiar with. I'd appreciate any advice.

Win 8.1 doesn't play DVDs without the Media centre add-on which costs. To record the audio I would use Audacity. If you want to play it on the desktop try VLC player, both are free.

It appears VLC can also do this ,though I've never tried it. I find Audacity simpler, click here.

Thanks folks - I'll try your suggestions. The DVD plays on RealPlayer, and once played, it used to find its way into RP Library, but this isn't happening. Despite the risks, I still wish I had old XP Home! At least I knew what was what!

Thanks again!
