What software is the best now? I read about dvd-cloner, 1click dvd, dvd fab and anydvd.[/QUOTE]
Hi jakesully and welcome to cdf,
This comes up quite a bit…[I]best[/I] is an extermely relative term user to user.
For retail products, IMO, your best bets are Fab or SlySoft products. I own both and they work very well for all my needs. If I could pick only one…it would be Fab Platinum…again, based upon my needs and only my opinion.
There are a variety of freeware options that probably will do everything you want. An example…the combination of [I]DVDFab HD Decrypter > Shrink > Img[/I]…and perhaps [I]Handbrake [/I]for mpeg-4 conversions, etc.
Most of us suggest you try them all. SlySoft has a 21 day (I think) free trial and Fab a 30 day free trial.
A word of advice…should you choose SlySoft…their licensing contracts are changing by Dec 31:
Fab’s contractual policies have already changed.
