There are so many software programs out there to backup movies that I wander which if any does the best job. My question is does the program used make a difference in the quality of the burn?
Personally for me there are no big differences.
Quality of burns depends more on the media and the burner you use.
There are only quality differences between the software, when i compress the
movies. Some progs given a good quality, some others not so good.
quick & easy tools are not so good as tools with lots of settings + longer encode time (more passes).
I’ve purchased several DVD copying programs and was never very happy with the results. Then I found DVD Shrink and have used it ever since (in excess of 400 DVDs copied with it), and it’s free! The quality really depends on how you copy the discs (the whole disc or just the movie). I also use DVD43 to circumvent the copy protection schemes.
best thing is to grab a handful of em (most have trial periods), and do your own testing to determine what you think is “best” based on what you find important (i.e. ease of use, capabilities/features, final results, etc.).
