Preserving Dolby Digital 5.1 when ripping

    I've successfully ripped a DVD using DVD Decrypter to my hard disk, and have manually chosen to strip out the 6 channel audio streams for foreign languages, as well as getting rid of sub-titles and extra features.

    It comes out as 5 files and totals just over 4GB.

    I don't want to down-sample any of the video, or audio, and specifically want to preserve the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack on the disc.

    Is this done automatically? I.e., if I were to re-assemble the DVD using a DVD authoring package would the audio be automatically what it was before? I.e. a Dolby Digital 5.1 track? Is the 2-channel version down-sampled by the DVD player, or is there specifically a different audio track?

    What format are you aiming to? DivX, SVCD or DVD-R?

    I was aiming to use it on a DVD-R, authoring it using something like Roxio VideoPack.
