what would be reason to have both cloneDVD and anydvd hd???wont' anydvd hd let me back up my DVD's and BDs????
CloneDVD can reduce the size of a dvd so that you can fit it onto a blank single layer dvd. It also allows you to remove parts, like extras, foreign language tracks or commentary that you might not want on a backup.
Anydvd will decrypt or rip the movie to your HDD but won't burn to dvd. Plus CloneDVD can't handle BD media. You will need something like Imgburn to burn the ripped movie done with Anydvd to burn to BD media or DVD if it fits. CloneDVD will still handle a majority of DVD old and new you just have to make sure Anydvd is current to decrypt the protection to use CloneDVD to backup the dvd movies. Plus Anydvd is the only current that I know of that will handle BD media to decrypt them.
