Slysoft & Elby rules, just face it !!
I purchased CloneDVD along with ANYDVD and am a happy camper Now I can make copies of the movies the kids keep playing till their worn-out
2 thumbs up
But, this program is Author'd by ELBY pushed by Slysoft that authors anydvd.
I've been using it for a month or so now and I don't know how I ever got along without it.
I highly recommend everybody to try it and see for yourself.
I am in the trial period for Clone DVD2 and Any DVD.
I found a couple of DVD's I could not back up, but for the most part, for the exception that the instructions are difficult to understand due to the technical verbage, it works well, and I will purchase it.

after a few months use this is my second choice for ripping dvds, the quality isnt as good as shrink, i dont know if this has improved on later versions but i did upgrade to the v 220.127.116.11 free trial and the processing time was the same so i doubt it.
anyway heres the good and the bad
very fast -rips AND compresses dual layer dvds in about 25 minutes in file mode (~1 hour in iso mode- takes time to write the iso)
you can keep funtional menus after removing other bits you dont want - something that shrink cant do without losing menu function in the dvd.
the newer versions have the feature of letting you cut the film from either end although you cant take bits out from the middle.
if you want to check a film for protection (read errors) itll scan through it quickly at the start of processing and will stop early but shrink only does this when its along way in to the analysis. so it saves alot of time when looking for the newer sony arrcos unreadable sector protection.
easy to use, 1 year of free updates.
its fast and qualities only passable on films where more than 75% compression is needed (eg you can see slight blockeyness if your close to the screen espically in areas of black), i wouldnt say im that fussy either. using shrink with deep analysis is better.
you cant change the amount of compression on a film which it calculates automatically, u can just take out audio etc to make it less compressed.
bottom line: very quick but of noticably lesser quality than shrink on deep analysis for films that need more than about 75% compression. but its good for light compression and single layer disks and quickly scanning through a dvd for read error protection.
I just tried AnyDVD4572 + CloneDVD2751. My comment is:
Fast + Stable + High Quality + Great Features.
BTW, during copy process, the Web browsing won't be influenced. Not like most copy software will eat a lot of system resource.
Best Commercial DVD copy software so far.
Then I discovered <b>CloneDVD 2</b>/AnyDVD. This is a very elegant piece of software. You can easily copy any DVD and get great quality. I have compared the results with DVD Shrink and I cannot see any difference on my 36 inch Toshiba TV. You can also easily do the following:
1. Copy any DVD
2. Split any DVD onto 2 DVD's
3. Copy a multi-episode(TV series) DVD onto 2 DVD AND retain the menu's on both DVD's.
<b>ClondDVD 2 is VERY fast! At least twice as fast as anything else I've tried!</b>
I have friends and relatives who have gone the DVD Decryptor/DVD Shrink route and have ALL switched to Clone DVD 2.
One thing I always do when burning the DVD is to set the burn speed one click lower than the DVD's rated speed. In other words if the blank DVD is rated at 8X, I burn it at 6X. For 4X I use 2-2.4X. This way I ensure that my DVD will play in any of my three DVD players. I have Sony, JVC and Philips. They also play in my Xbox.
The choice is yours. If you're looking for ease, simplicity and great quality CloneDVD 2 is the way to go.
