Copy your DVD Movie or Music CD

Revised on

Save time and money by backing up your valuable DVD Movies and Music CDs

I can't tell you how many times I scratched or lost one of my DVD movies and wished like hell I had a way to copy it. I'm sure the Movie guys love it when you have to buy another copy of the movie because you weren't to careful with you original copy or one of your kids was not so gentle with your original copy of Terminator 2.

Thank GOD for the guys at 321 Studios! These guys are taking the bull by the horns and not only bucking the big powerful media moguls by production a way for the average Joe like you and me to make backup copies for our own personal use. Which by the way is our RIGHT as consumers to make a copy. I won't go into detail on that. We all KNOW it true.

321 has also gone one step further and is suing the movie studios to get a judgment for us. Now isn't that something!?! I love these guys. There should be more companies like them.

Anyway... on with my review...

In a nutshell, you pop in your DVD Movie and pop in a blank DVD (-R) or (+R) and let it rip away. It takes about 40 minutes on my PC (Athlon 2000+ / 512mem / 120gb PC). Most of the time takes 2 DVD blank disks to complete. That's because most DVD Movies are duel layered disks with up to 9 gigabytes of movie on them. DVDxcopy figures out where the best place to split the movie is and you get a chance to get up and go to the bathroom or get a snack. The reason for this is most consumer DVD burners are on capable of burning up to 4.7 gigabytes on one side. You can get a Authoring DVD burner but that'll set you back $5,000 - $10,000. Only the pros use these.
