Let's start with smart ripper
First insert your dvd and open smartripper, after the unlock box
opens and reads the dvd, smartripper main box will open.
Program chain 1 should be highlighted, this is the main movie. and
all the chapters should be ticked. Also in the cells box, they should
also be ticked. also select where you want the new files to be saved in
the target box.
Now goto the stream processing tab
Make sure enable stream processing is ticked.In the streams area,
the stream with (0x80) audio english ac3 (XXX) 48khz is the main audio
stream. Make sure it is ticked, then click on it. In the area beside
it, select demux to extra file. This will make a separate ac3 audio
file. When done click start. It may take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes
to complete the rip.
Open ac3 tools
On the ac3 analysis, open the folder that you saved the ripped
files from smartripper in the dropdown box.Select the ac3 file, launch
analysis may work, i couldn't get it to, but it realy isn't

I also use AC3Tool....and you are the only person I've seen who mentioned that analysis was NOT necessary. After much trial and error I figured out that is not only un-necessary.....AC3Tool closes on me after Analysis. I just open the file in Analysis....then hit the AC3 to .wav tab and off we go.
Out of all of the suggestions on this site....AC3 tool is the only one that works for me....but I'm somewhat of a newbie...
Good Job Wingnut (Funny....a Wingnut to me is usually an idiot.....not this time)...
Thanks tommyknocker, i haven't used the vdub mod, but i have tried other metods and i couldn't get it to work. so i tried the method i described and it worked great. i will check out the vdub mod method to see how that goes. worth a try.
thanks also to hech64, i am also somewhat of a newbie too. i got all kinds of comments on my screenname from other forums too, some thaught i took it from when grouco marks sidekick, i guess his name was wingnut also. anyway i am glad you liked my guide, it was my first attempt at it.
