This information was posted by someone on Apple discussions:
You could also go cheap and play the dvd on a regular dvd player, with a stereo mini jack into your sound input port and record it using iMove. Then dropping the Quicktime file into iTunes to burn to cd.

WAYS TO RIP AUDIO FROM VIDEOS

Using QuickTime Pro available for both Windows and Mac $30 (Apple Store)

1- Make a copy of the video file and place it on your desktop.
2- Open the file in QT Pro.
3- Select File > Export > Sound to wave
4- Under 'Save As' type in the title
5- Under 'Where' select the output location for the file
6- Then click 'Save' and wait for the file to complete.

In iTunes go to File>Add to library & locate the file, then click 'Open' to move the file into the iTunes library.

Under 'Preferences' > Import set the bit rate for the .WAV to be converted down to. Then under 'Advance' select 'convert selection to' either AAC or MP3 whichever one you selected will be viewable. Click on it and the file will begin to convert. When done you will have an audio file as well as a video. Just fill in the tags and your done.

FREEWARE

MPEG Streamclip - for both Mac & Wiindows (supports XP & Vista)

1- Open file in MPEG Streamclip
2- Under File > select 'Export to Audio'
--Format: AIFF, MP4 AAC, & MP2 are your choices. Select MP4 AAC which will allow you to have the option to chose a bit rate. Since most videos will be a lesser bit rate this option is best. You can check the bit rate of the video file your ripping the audio from in iTunes. Just select the bit rate column to view it.
--Channels: Stereo, Mono (select Stereo)
--Sample Rate: Auto
--Bit Rate: AIFF 256kbps (greyed out). Files will be converted to this bit rate. MP4 AAC (can select a different bit rate). Chose the bit rate of the video file. You can't up convert the audio for a higher bit rate. MP2 will allow you to also select a bit rate. The bit rate choices are 16kbps to 256kbps.

Under 'Adjustments' the volume can be increased or decreased. Then click 'ok'.
Save As: input Title
Where: output location of file. Where you want it to be saved to.

Then wait for the file to finish and move it into iTunes and input the tag information.


For WINDOWS users only - Super (freeware) will rip the audio from .VOB files as well as converted video files per the website information. I haven't personally used it to rip the audio from a converted file but have used it to rip audio from .vob files.

Per the website:

-drag & drop any Audio file or even any VIDEO file and EXTRACT the AUDIO part by converting it to:
aac, ac3, amr_nb (for ring tones), amr_wb, mmf (for ring tones), mp2, mp3, mpc (MusePack), ogg, wav, wma formats.

Change (#1) the output container to MP3. Then convert the file. The output file will be C://program file/erightsoft/super/output
