I like to reactivate DVDXCopy. Please let me know my License ID and Password. Thank you.

The chief complaint about version 1.5.0 is that the program now asks, "Is this DVD borrowed or a rental?" Many users find this annoying, with some saying it is an insult.

Several people "care about the click," asking users about their integrity, regardless of their PC's horsepower, with has nothng to do with the issue. Further, if 321 Studios is willing to compromise its coding based on the fear of legal eagles, users might see further watering down of the program, possibly to the point that another software company might be a better option.

Hey guys who cares about the click. Remember 321 were one of the first to bring this type of software to us. If a click covers thier a~rse legally, so be it. For all those that can't stand the click, take a deep breath, point you mouse, close your eyes and click. There you go, that was'nt that difficult now was it?

Telling these guys to click is like telling a girl to swallow! Paul.

hello just installed dvd x copy 1.5. In the process of trying to copy a movie I continously get the following message. "No dvd burner found". I have supposedly gearworks burner and nero as an external burner. How do I get dvd x copy to recognize either?

First, go to Check to see if your burner is listed. Also, ensure you've got the latest firmware version. Also, since you own DVDXCopy, try their technical support option at
