    Hi, folks:

    getting into a habit of copying nice movies from DVD for my family. But

    Which software is good to start with ?

    A friend of mine recommends DVD-Cloner, costing US$ 59.95,, while
    Today's giveaway list Plato DVD Copy for free.

    Any known issues concerning these two ? Thanks.

    1. You mean movies on DVD, you bought/hired and make a copy of this DVD on a blank DVD for the family ?
    2. Or do you mean recorded movies from TV and make a copy of this recorded movie on a blank DVD for the family ?
    3. Or do you mean downloaded movies from the internet and make a copy on a blank DVD for the family ?

    When I buy a dvd and want to make a copy for the grandchildren to watch when they stay, I use DVD shrink and DVD Decrypter. There are lots of other options and opinions on this subject but these work for me.

    A guide to setting up and using is here

    I use DVD Shrink (freeware) for #1 to get the movie on DVD of 4.7gb, because alot of movies are larger than 4.7gb.
    DVD Shrink also allows you to remove the advertising, previews, etc. and choose the subtitles of your language only. You can also trim the beginning and the end of the movie, which reduces the size a little.

    #2 is a bit more work, because I have to remove the advertising of TV inside the movie first, usually 2 or 3 blocks of advertising. When the movie is very good, I usually buy it on DVD. For B-movies, I keep the TV-version.

    I don't do #3 yet.
