You can rip a DTS CD direct to .WAV (or FLAC) in the same way as any other CD. The SB2 renders the file bit-for-bit so you can hook the digital output to a DTS decoder/processor and listen in surround.
If you want to rip audio from a DVD-Video disc, you'll need a tool to do so. Products like the Imtoo DVD audio ripper will apparently rip LPCM and AC3 but I don't know about DTS soundtracks.

I wonder what you are trying to use as a source: you don't usually find ".dts" files lying around...
In the case of a DTS CD, the dts data stream is 'wrapped' so as to look like a standard IEC S/PDIF data stream, ie it appears to be audio from the point of view of any ripping software.
This means that as long as you are using a lossless codec, such as FLAC (ripping to .WAV is fine too, though bigger) then the integrity of the data stream will be preserved: listening to the raw playback it will just sound like noise, but on feeding the S/PDIF digital output from the SB2 into a DTS surround decoder it should decode successfully, with perhaps just a very short burst of noise at the start.
Here is a thread including sources of information to set up EAC correctly for FLAC:
Note that this only works on the SB2, as prior boxes accidentally inverted the data and you just get noise. And yes, of course you need the digital output set to full, or preferably fixed.
In the case of a DTS DVD, the data does NOT have the IEC 'wrapper'. This is actually added by the DVD player. As a result, you need special software to grab that stream and encapsulate it.
Thus you should be able to rip the DTS CD of "Hell Freezes Over" but ripping the soundtrack of the DVD will be rather more complex and will not be achieved simply with standard ripping software.
Hope this helps...
