I’ve extracted all audio tracks from a DVD using DVD Decrypter. The
output format are multiple .DTS files that can be played by PowerDVD 5.0.
So far so good.
Next step is to convert all DTS files into PCM WAV files with CDA sample
rate (44.1KHz) preserving all the DTS channels (6) into 3 virtual
channel per stereo channel. This is the main reason for what I’m doing.
I’ve found a software that can do this (or at least I guess so):
dts2wav.exe (downloaded from a french web site, dunno where exactly) but
after a few seconds of convertion it crashes (I get the pop-up of the
Windows XP app crash window).
Now I’m on a dead point. How can I do this?
Thanks very much for your replies.

I haven’t had much luck with dts2wav.exe or wav2dts.exe either. Are you
feeding dts2wav.exe a *.DTS file? Try DTSParser.exe on the raw *.DTS file.
then use dts2wav.exe and see if that helps. All three programs can be found
With DTSParser.exe you need to click rebuild stream.

DTSParser didn’t help so much, infact dts2wav crashes again. The
author of the program told me that he doesn’t support that tool
anymore and, for my purposes (obtain a decompressed PCM WAV file) I’d
have used Hypercube Transcoder.
Now I obtain a large PCM WAV 6ch file, which doesn’t fit for my need
yet, because I need a CD Audio WAV format file (2ch Stereo 32bit
44.1KHz) with 3 virtual channel per Stereo channel. I don’t know if
this is someway possible, I’m just trying.
P.S.: I’m not trying to make a DTS CD Audio, but a STANDARD CD Audio!
That means I have to use PCM WAV 2ch 32bit 44.1KHz audio files…

Everthing this group is about is producing, not destroying,
myltichannel content. Not to say there’ s no legitimate need to do
so, but factually, almost everything that exists in DTS, is also out
there somewhere in pcm stereo. Maybe all you have to do is find it.
OTOH, if you have something really unique and interesting in
multichannel audio that’s not otherwise available, maybe you should
post it in the dts group! That would say to focus on creating a dts
wav from your 6 channels .
From there you could, say, use VLC media player, which (bug or
feature) seems to convert dts-wav to pcm-stereo by default, and much
to the frustration of some!
In brief, make a dts cd wav file and options will open up.
(this opinion and $1.25 might get you a coffee, so its FWIW)
