what if my DVD drive has no audio ports?


Because I want to record some audio off a DVD in my DVD drive (and have never done any audio recording before using any device), I read up on how to connect the DVD drive to onboard sound or a sound card, and found out I have to connect a cable from the audio port on the DVD drive to the matching connector on the motherboard or sound card. (I thought I needed a sound card, but maybe not. Some sources say my onboard sound might be good enough and I should try it first.)

Now I discovered that my DVD drive has no audio ports at all, nothing but a SATA port and power cable port. (Which seems odd, because my CD drive, which is ten years older, has analog and digital audio ports.) So...that means I'm stuck for recording audio from this DVD drive, doesn't it? I suppose I could try to hook up my dedicated DVD player to the computer...

All data from a DVD SATA drive is sent using the SATA interface. I have never heard of an DVD drive made for use inside a computer that has audio ports on it. If you have one, please post a picture.

What exactly is on the DVD you want to record from ? If it's a movie then you can just rip the audio from it using whatever ripping software you like. I would use vobcopy and ffmpeg or mencoder.

For an audio CD you would use cdparanoia, unless you wanted to clone it in which case you would use cdrdao.

In addition applications these days use digital audio extraction so an external audio cable is not required anymore.

Yes, it's a video. Vobcopy, ffmpeg, mencoder...thank you, I'll get those.

DVD drives with analog/digital audio output ports were pretty much standard for a few years. Heres a nice link to the manufacturers spec page for one-

I've got a few DVD drives with back panel audio outputs hanging round here....sorry no pic now, its 3AM and I just finished a stupidly long shift....

Oh, I think I have seen one of these, but maybe I didn't realize what the headphones port was for.

These are quite old and I never had the chance to buy one.
