I just noticed that SlySoft currently offers a price reduction on their products. So I am thinking about buying AnyDVD + CloneDVD. But i don’t know if it’s really worth it. So I have a few questions:
Do both AnyDVD and CloneDVD have an update function or do I have to uninstall current version and then install new version everytime one of the products gets updated?
Is there any really good alternative to AnyDVD or CloneDVD (especially when it comes to transcoding quality)?
I apologize for my English as I’m not a native English speaker.
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to all of you!
Welcome to the forum Acubens ,
In answer to your questions,
1: You may install updates overtop of older versions with both programs.
2: There are other shrinking programs available, and some that are even free, however CloneDVD2 is a very good application, with many features, that is very easy to use. Both of these products are continuously updated. The support here at CDF, and from SlySoft, is awsome. The package price discount coupled with the Christmas discount, make for a great deal in my opinion.
I suggest downloading it and trying it out for yourself. There is a 21 day trial period. Not sure how long the Christmas promotion will last, but it appears you would still have a couple of days to try them out, and still get the additional discount.
So I can just overwrite the old program files with the new one without any problems? But there is no ‘real’ update function?
That’s true. CloneDVD and AnyDVD are both very easy to use and updated very often. I also find it amazing that you receive ‘Free lifetime updates’, that’s pretty awesome. I just wanted to know if there are any other programs that can compete with the transcoding quality of CloneDVD.
I already tried both programs. That’s why I consider buying them
The very nature of AnyDVD & it’s function mean that the update process will be more prolific.
As for CloneDVD2. For a tried & tested program of long standing. 1 update per month (almost) is not to be ignored. Showing the Slysoft team do not rest on their laurels.
