Is there a way to rip the audio track(s) from a DVD?

I usually use one of the following in linux:

mplayer -vc null -vo null -ao pcm:fast -dvd-device /path/to/dvddrive/or/isofile dvd://1
mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile audio.ac3 -dvd-device /path/to/dvddrive/or/isofile dvd://1

Change the 1 at the end depending which program number on the disk you want to rip :p

I usually use DVD Shrink to extract video and audio from the DVD.

I used DVD Shrink but it extracts the audio as part of the video and the audio folder is empty.

I personally use DVD Decrypter (though you can use any DVD ripping program), rip the DVD, then to get the audio I load the ripped VOB files into DGMPGDec (http://neuron2.net/dgmpgdec/dgmpgdec.html) and choose "Save Project and Demux video", with the option "Decode AC3 track to WAV" selected in the Audio menu. Then I load the wav file(s) into Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/) or Premiere and edit it down the specific portions I want.

Reading it all typed out here may make it sound like a lot of work, but honestly it doesn't take more than a few minutes, even if you've never done it before. :D
