Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for CloneDVD
Anyone who works a lot with DVDs and has to copy them on the computer either for transferring the mmovies onto another device or just for storing them on the local hard disk needs a professional tool for the job. Among the utilities that are especially tailored for this task, there's a really easy to use software called CloneDVD.
The application sports a nice interface and comes with multiple copying methods, such as entire disc, main movie, split disc and customize, thus trying to address any need you might have in this respect. CloneDVD can remove the disc protection and enables you to copy the DVD movies with only a couple of clicks.
As expected, each of the copying modes have their particularities so, for example, if you choose the customize mode, you'll have to select the files you wish to remain in the final version of the copied DVD.
During our tests we found the copying speed to be a bit under the expectations, but the job was done in a fairly good time after all. A great thing about CloneDVD was that it enabled us to have a DVD-9 movie split into 2 parts so it would fit a couple of more common DVD-5 discs.
CloneDVD has a tiny settings menu that enables you to select the burn engine as well as the workspace folder. You can set the computer to shut down after the current task finishes and also have the temporary files automatically removed at the end of the process.
To sum things up, it's safe to say that CloneDVD can do a pretty good job in helping you copy your movie collection. It also preserves the quality of the original DVDs you work with.
