Easy to Use Copy Software for Noob

I’m a noob to DVD copying and would like advice as to the most efficient and easiest to use software.

On brief research the 3 that I have come across today are DVD Shrink, DVDXCopy Gold and DVD2One.

AFAIK all 3 of these programmes would allow me to copy encrypted DVD.

On first view the presentation on the DVDXcopy site is impressive and that seems easiest to use, despite having to pay for it.

I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on the above or as to other software that might be better.


dvdxcopy is very easy…clonedvd with anydvd also
try to download some demo’s and make a choice

DVDShrink works so well I can’t see any reason for using commercial dvd copying programs. People have different tastes in programs I guess.

The only problem I’ve ever had with Shrink is ripping dvd’s that are badly scratched. It doesn’t like to do the deep analysis on those disks. So on those, I use DVDDecrypter to rip them to the hard drive first, then use Shrink.

The combination of those two programs is hard to beat, at least by other transcoders. DVDDecrypter will also burn the disks in ISO mode, but I use Nero 5.5 since I am more familiar with it.
