A rhetorical one, I thought. Sorry if I was wrong. If your question was serious, then my answer is that earlier versions of the other product were seriously flawed when it came to splitting DVD9 movies, but as of the latest release that has been corrected; I'm not sure many would-be customers know of this (since obviously they might have chosen to stay away from the product all together if it had worked poorly for them in the past, plus the other guys don't seem to have anyone like Olli out answering users' questions).
Also I think it's a little unfair for others to complain about the "other" Clone's price tag of $99, when it decrypts and burns, whereas you need something like AnyDVD to do anything with Elby's Clone. Sure, $99 is still a lot, but it's not like Elby's product is really only half the price.
Whose fault is that? (That is a rhetorical question!)
My mistake....although I think it's a little redundant to call it "CloneDVD 2 (Version 18.104.22.168)" as the elby website does. (Why have the "2" in there twice? For example, no one says "DVD Shrink 3 v3.2").
Anyway, none of this really matters. I'll repeat what I said before: Elby's CloneDVD is superior, but the other version isn't necessarily as bad as some say.
Of course, if Elby would add non-consecutive chapter- (and menu-) editing, I'd have no reason to use the other one at all. I'm just starting to experiment with a trial of Super DVD Copy which also has these features but which will be -- I hope -- a little better than the other Clone.
