Due to the majority of the people here suggesting DVDFab as the tool of choice, I just bought a lifetime license to give me time to copy my DVD collection to my server. There were some things that didn’t work as I wished that I thought would be “corrected” or would work as I thought in the paid for version. I am trying to do things in as much of a “batch” mode as I can, basically feeding in discs and having them copied to my server. I assumed more of the steps could be set as defaults, but the product doesn’t seem to work that way.
When I put in a disk, it opens DVDFab and scans the disk and designates the disk as the source. Good so far
I found an area to designate DVD9 format so that it wouldn’t do compression and that default works.
Under “Common Settings - General” I designated the output directory, N: and that value is saved there, but can’t get the “Destination” field to default to my preferred “N:” setting vs. defaulting to one of my DVD drives? I don’t want to have to click the destination field down arrow and select drive N: each time. Where can I pick it as default?
Where can I set it to automatically pick the “remove PGC” stuff setting?
Last, but not least (for now), why can’t I stay in my current DVDFab session and insert another disk without DVDFab launching again? I already clicked the OK button on the “process completed” popup. I already clicked the corner “finished” button, so at that point DVDFab should be ready for a new disk. Why does it instead open a new version instead of using the open copy?
I was hoping the process would be this simple:
- insert disk
- DVDFab opens with all my default settings mentioned above
- click “start”
- click “ok” when completed
- click “finish” (tray opens)
- remove previous disk
- load new disk
repeat 3-7 over and over, disk by disk
I can’t imagine that such a sophisticated program is incapable of being operated in a simplified, default manner, so I have to assume it is my inability to find the proper settings.
