    That's normal. And that's why we recommend normalizing the audio -- if you are doing DivX clips (of course you're using our DivX guide, right?) use CDEx's normalizing feature and if you're doing MPEG clips, you can use TMPGEnc to normalize the audio.

    Please tell me how to use TMPGEnc to normalize the audio. Thank you for your help.

    Click 'Setting', choose the 'Audio', check the 'Use Audio Edit' box, click 'Setting', check 'Change volume', and click 'Normalize'.

    That's it.

    The average audio level on DVDs is lower because of the large dynamic range. You can compress the dynamic range in DVD2AVI's options to try and make the audio louder - at the cost of dynamic range, of course. That means that explosions won't sound quite as loud and the engine sounds lose their.. grunt..
