I've tried using 9221 beta still doesn't remove Cinavia. Tried it for Jurassic World and Furious 7. I bought both of them. Any help would be appreciated.


Dec 22, 2015 Version: 9221 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 1/10




This is an update regarding my Post #67 "by digitaljar". I had to uninstall and then reinstall the software and registered my lifetime key again. The software is back to normal.



Jun 24, 2015 Version: 9.2.0.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Terrible update! I purchased a lifetime license for Blu-Ray to DVD and now the iso option is not working, instead it will convert to vob. Also, incorrect path destination from what I chose; I out put all files to another hard drive but the software decides to keep it at default and send it to the dvdfab9 folder on C drive...annoying bug.




Jun 13, 2015 Version: 9.2.0.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 7/10



Trying to copy Divergent claims to have successfully copied the full disc but when I go to burn the DVD I get the following:
One or more files (mostly Vob file(s)) do not belong to the corresponding IFO file.
Did I do something wrong or is this version of DVDFab 9.1.6.0 not able to copy the full disc?

The removal of decryption capabilities for BD/DVD does not affect licensed versions of the software, only the (U.S.) free version.


Jul 22, 2014 Version: 9.1.5.8 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



There are two versions of DVDFab, the International Edition which does decrypt, and the U.S. Edition which does not decrypt and is essentially useless.

The international version that can decrypt cannot be sold or distributed in the U.S. due to the pending AACS-LA vs. DVDFab lawsuit in the U.S. District Court.

If you live in the U.S. you can download the full featured international version by using a VPN or proxy set to a country other than the U.S. The File Hashes for international version 9.1.5.7 are:
CRC32: C6CD900B
MD5: 78409D2BEF283D4F2136E7A2DAA90A80
SHA-1: 75E9CB68B3416405126B5368D730F8F7B293A938

DVDFab straightened out their GUI, it's now easy to navigate around it, and the international version works good. It decrypted all the DVDs and Blu-rays I used with it so far.





Jul 22, 2014 Version: 9.1.5.7 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Note that due to Fengtao's ongoing dispute with AACS-LA, DVDFab starting with version 9.1.5.0 has removed the ability to decrypt Blu-ray discs (and DVDFab itself is no longer offered for sale in the USA), hence the low scores for functionality and value for the money. I've used DVDFab for many years for ripping DVDs, supported them by purchasing a full-functionality lifetime license, and looked forward to being able to rip my growing collection of Blu-ray discs, but with this version, I've essentially paid a lot of money for a crippled product. If you need to rip Blu-rays, you should look into other products such as AnyDVD HD, at least until this mess is sorted out.


May 30, 2014 Version: 9.1.5.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 5/10



Don't get me wrong, DVDFab is one of the two best ripping apps, the other being AnyDVD/CloneDVD but I hate the new GUI. It's tedious and cumbersome to move around in. Every thing seems like it's hidden and the preview screen is very small with tiny controls and you get eye strain when moving around between titles and chapters. I much prefer the old GUI, clean and neat and much easier to navigate in. I reverted back to version 9.0.7.2 which is the last version that has the old GUI, and I give that a 9/10.


Mar 21, 2014 Version: 9.1.3.6 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 5/10



Tried the free HD Decrypter 9.1.3.1 as V1de0Luv mentioned on Hunger Games-Catching Fire and it read the disc fine so it would seem that I have a problem with DVDFab I might have to reinstall it or else there is a problem with DVDFab itself for version 9.1.3.1.
But for now I am pleased that the free version worked for me.



Mar 9, 2014 Version: 9.1.3.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



Check your disk to make sure it is clean then try to rip to hard drive again, I did the bluray with no problem.


Mar 8, 2014 Version: 9.1.3.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Yes, there is a problem with Hunger Games Catching Fire, but I had no problem reading the DVD I got from Red Box using the Free version HD Decrypter. The problem I had was that VidCoder could not identify the correct VTS for the main movie. I manually joined the VOBs into one big VOB and compressing that to MKV with Handbrake.


Mar 8, 2014 Version: 9.1.3.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Won't do Full Disc copy of Hunger Games - Catching Fire gets to 93% analysing disc and then a dialogue box pops up with an error reading disc message even though it is claimed this version will copy this disc.

Very faulty program, absolutely no support.
Much better programs out there.

The DVDFab 9 series was working OK with Windows XP SP3 up through version 9.0.6.3 then quit. The 9.0.7.2 version installs but won't run, no error messages. The latest 9.1.0.5 version produces an exception error message during installation and when attempting to run. I wonder if it could be a new "unstated" .NET requirement. I only have .NET 2.0 installed...

I had one goal in mind. To create BlyRay like quality of video and HD sound something like 7.1 MA DTS-HD or TrueHD in single MKV file library so I can use XBMC is user interface to play them all. And this program indeed allows me to do just that. As of version 9.0.7.0 you can select any bluray ISO or just a m2ts file and select passtrough in video and you'll get exact copy of BluRay in about 10 minutes you'll get nice mkv with hd sound. Before this version you had to use H.264 codec and you could control bit rate to make file smaller but as stated before I wanted an exact BluRay quality and now you can. Also with H.264 you'll need around 6 hours to make 1 mkv, but with video copy you'll make same mkv in about 10 mins. :D Amazing program. IF you have hard drive space and you want to make MKV library and enjoy watching it do what I did and use it and abuse it !

Here is an example of my latest creation in numbers:

As you can see file is only 26.3GB with one 7.1 HD Track on it and AVC video quality untouched straight from BluRay. And it took around 11 minutes on my i7 920 @ 3.33 Ghz OC CPU and with help of HD6970 GPU to do the job.

Good luck !

I've never had an issue with DVDFab when backing up a DVD or Blu-ray. It's simple enough for my sister to use to backup her DVD movies as protection from her grandchildren. I recently upgraded to the all-in-one to use the video converter option, specifically for my Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR h264 captures in 1080i/720p. The converter fails on this file type, and by this I mean the progress indicator never goes above 0% completion even after hours, and no file is produced. If I feed the converter an x264 AVI it has no problem, so it looks like the the software has issues with the h264 video from the Hauppauge. I checked their forum but there appears to be no answers to multiple people reporting the converter failure. So for those looking to use this feature be advised that it looks like it's currently a work in progress.

This is a very good decrypter. As a DVD copier/transcoder it's kind of useless.

Problem is, it doesn't have a 2 pass mode for reencoding or transcoding DVDs. You cannot get high quality results without 2 pass.

Fortunately there's a good solution which does make DVDFab useful. It does involve an extra step, and an extra up to 8 and a half gigs spare drive space, but it's not slower.

First use DVDFab as a decrypter (the free part). Send the output to a folder in DVD9 mode. It'll just do a bit copy and strip out the copy protection.

Then use that as input to DVD Shrink. This is free but doesn't always decrypt newer DVDs like Disney since it's notn supported anymore. But in every other way it's far superior. It does 2 pass (they call it deep analysis mode) and will also apply sharpen or soften effects. The latter is very useful if you want to compress a movie that is 2 1/2 hour or more.

This sounds like it'd be slower but it isn't, though there's an extra step. Just taking out the copy protection is pretty fast, and then the optical drive isn't used until you want to burn the new DVD. Doing the encoding from the HD speeds up the process a lot.

So yes, I use DVDFab, and I'd recommend it, but only the decrypter part. Fortunately that's the free part.

DVDFab is the premiere software that bypasses DVD/Blu-ray encryption and I've been using it successfully for years. However, with my recent induction in the world of Blu-ray copying, I had to look for an alternative program to condense Blu-ray movies larger than a 25GB BD-R to fit since DVDFab's quality is pretty horrendous. I posed the question in another rival Blu-ray copying program's forum by the name of MultiAVCHD, which is a fine FREE program but the instructions the developer has written aren't very clear nor are they complete as he is from another country. When I asked about the best quality of all the programs, someone mentioned BD Rebuilder which is another FREE program and I thought I'd give it a try. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised and extremely satisfied!! BD Rebuilder is far superior to DVDFab when it comes to shrinking or condensing larger sized movies to fit on 25GB BD-Rs retaining the quality of the original Blu-ray film.

To prove to myself there was a definite difference, I did a comparison of the movie "The A-Team" condensed to fit on a 25GB BD-R with just video and the DTS audio track on DVDFab vs. BD Rebuilder...

"The A-Team" condensed to fit on 25GB BD-R with DVDFab

"The A-Team" condensed to fit on 25GB BD-R with BD Rebuilder

As you can see, the DVDFab version looks horribly washed out with blacks crushed whereas the BD Rebuilder version looks robust, crystal clear, the blacks are consistently black and the scene is full of color just like the original disc.

Wanted a free app to backup with minor re-authoring (trimming front and end and commercials removal) of DVDs which DVD Shrink 3.2 could not handle and the puffs for DVDFab indicated that commercials could be removed and trimming done, however in DVD Copy mode and its sub-sets I find the start and end timings adjustable only per chapter - not much use for a one Title with no Chapters 43 minutes DVD created from an online rip of a VHS tape.

Back to the likes of RipIt4Me and Smartripper?



Feb 11, 2011 Version: 8.0.7.3 OS: WinXP Ease: 6/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 5/10



I have been using DVDFab for several years. Itís the easiest to use compared to other programs and you canít tell the difference between the compressed video output and the original when backing up your DVDs. If you have an issue or problem, tech support is quick to respond to your e-mails. I highly recommend it.

The movie Agora, when converted to MKV or .VOB the file will not play on Nero Showtime or on the Western Digital Media Player unless you drag the play bar. I then tried using "MAKE MKV" program and the end of the equal sign is the same outcome, the movie will not play unless you drag the play bar. I tried using "DVDFAB PASS KEY 7" re-coded the file in Nero and then convert to MKV using "DVDFAB 8" and the same issue occurred.

Agora can be copied to DVD media and the movie will play without issues. I tried to convert the movie to AVI and of course the movie will not play unless you drag the play bar. I think this could be a new protection in the making.

This is the best version of FAB I have ever used!! This version is still simple to rip and convert. I have the Western Digital TV LIVE Network Player and the MKV converter tool in FAB makes it fast and easy to convert while ripping DVDS without time code errors. This version is worth the $50.00 and makes a great investment which I will be buying and I hope Fantigo software accepts pre-paid visa because I never use my actual VISA credit card for online purchases.

Framerate change in dpg profile has no influence on the final encoded file, it's always same as source.
Subtitle size is not changeable, at low resolutions it's to big and to small at higher resolutions.

Works as advertised. Been using it for years now without issues.

The only knock I have against it is the subscription approach.

Not sure what the previous reviewer doubleBB is talking about. DVDFab is a decrypter not an h264 encoder. Maybe he or she got mixed up and put a review for some other software app.

But if you are a newby... it is extermally simple to use.

At first I used DVDFab 5 to rip scratched DVDs because DVD Decrypter has no facility to skip bad sectors. Later when I experimented with encoding I tried DVDFab which is a fairly respectable video encoder, and unlike freeware like AutoGK or WinFF can be easily customised by the newbie. Its only real weakness is a lack of any option to de-interlace, and default settings (eg. the framerate) that may only increase the encoding time and produce worse results.
It has the ability to encode a DVD on the fly but I still prefer to rip and then encode (usually with Nero Recode) to save wear and tear on the DVD drive.

Nero Recode can encode a DVD into its "standard" format very quickly but grinds to a comparative halt when encoding to H264, DVDFab seems to have the edge here as it can encode to H246 and AAC in a reasonable timeframe. However when Nero Recode's 2-pass is so quick and it can intelligently resize, I usually use that (I wish newbies who squash full-res video into a few hundred megabytes did too). For encoding for uploading to the internet, I would probably use DVDFab 5 as it can encode in common formats like xvid and mp3, even if I have to guess the most appropriate size and aspect ratio. I recently discovered that DVDfab can extract the audio from a DVD, much easier than using DVD Decrypter.

MISS CHIEVOUS, I am not sure if you are looking in the proper location. My DVDFab (version 6) has the option to save as an ISO, located at the target buttons, which is placed below the source button.

NO ISO IMAGE CREATION. With all the conversion features crowding this program you'd think the authors could manage to fit one lousy "Save to an ISO file" option. $50, and it can't even generate an image file? It's inexcusable.

To get the mobile option to never expire go to the DVDFab web site. Click on the Support tab. Now click on the Lost your registration key link and fill in the info requested to have your key resent to you. The key that you get is different from the version 5 one. Open DVDFab 6 paste in this new key and your mobile option will show never expire again. I haven't had time to try out the new version yet, but it looks pretty good.

(A) If you'd read the support forum, this is a known bug. Your lifetime key will still work as it always did once the bug is fixed.

(B) 6.0.0.0 is a beta. Expect bugs.

(C) Repeat step (B) until it sinks in.

On DVDFab 5 I had Mobile Option, Never Expire, Enabled.

On DVDFab 6 I am Mobile Option, Trail User, Expires in 30 Days.

So much for, "For registered users of DVDFab Platinum/Gold, your key is still valid for version 6, and all features are same as version 5 or more than it."

Tried twice now updated from 5.2.3.2 to 5.2.5.0 something is wrong thinking i will try a beta between them and see if that changes.but still love the program.


Apr 25, 2009 Version: 5.2.5.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Not sure why plcpower is having problems but obviously others are not as he is the only one stating that it closes.

I have ripped several disc's with this version and it works perfectly fine.
Also one of my buddies has been using the "mobile" conversion on quite a few versions for his Ipod Touch with zero issues.



Apr 24, 2009 Version: 5.2.5.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



love this program but this version needs to be fixed it scans the disc then just closes,I'll go back one version.thanks

Great for DVD backup--However, it does not or support blu-ray as they suggest on the download page--It recognizes my drive when I have a dvd in it, but blu-ray it disappears.

Not bad for newbies. The "mobile option" isn't very popular with ffmpeg as you can see the company is listed on ffmpeg's Hall of Shame page: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/shame.html


Aug 19, 2008 Version: 5.0.8.8 OS: WinXP Ease: 6/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 4/10 Overall: 7/10



Excellent little program, thoroughly capable of everything it says it will do and more. My only little niggle at present is a small problem using DVD-R's, as it appears to be a little bit choosy at times when burning, but it could just be a slight hiccough with my machine.

Otherwise full marks, and thoroughly recommended.



Feb 29, 2008 Version: 4.0.6.2 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



In producing backups of my DVD (original) movies, including Pirates 3 (At World's End) in this instance, I used ProData DVR+R DL media with a MID of RICOHJPNSD0 (43h), which had served me well. The 3.x trial DVDFabPlatinum (can't remember exactly which one) of DVDFab Platinum had produced quite a few anomalies, skipping up to 15 seconds of the film at times. The 4.0.1.2 version produced much less, and the 4.0.1.6 (beta) version was almost perfect ... just a few stutters at the layer break, but no lost frames.

After receiving a prompt response from the vendor about my problem, I went out and bought some Verbatim DVR+R DL (2.4 - 6/8/10) Singapore stuff with MID of MKM001 (00h) and it burned and played perfectly. And some 2 minutes faster than the 8x ProData media.

So it looks (from my viewpoint) that 4.0.1.6 version is ready for prime time.

Morals: Memorex = Total Crap, ProData = not too bad, Verbatim = excellent, DVDFab = best value for the money.

FAB is an excellent backup choice. Quick, works nicely with IDE and SATA drives. Simple yet has enough options to keep even the pros happy.

Hi
Just used the latest version 3.1.9.0 DVD FabPlatinum to convert a 2Hour 45min movie to a 700Mb file using the X264 codec. The conversion took only 1Hour 40Min using my Intel Dual Core laptop and the result was fantastic. Great work guys.



Sep 15, 2007 Version: 3.1.9.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



DVD FAB Gold worked perfect up to version 3.0.9.8. After this version it will only burn coasters on my system. Support is terrible, and they keep saying it is my system. I continue to use the old version 3.0.9.8 with no problems. The response I get every time I report is as follows:
I forwarded your letter to our tech team. They will check the problem. Please wait for our new version.
Any questions in future, please feel free to contact us.
Sincerely,
Ada Fang
DVDIdle Support Team

What an excellent tool this is. After the demise of original Decrypter, this came along to fill the gap. More than that, its resilience to bad disks is impressive. If I can't get a disk to rip with DVD Decrypter or DVD Shrink, FAB saves the day. I can get even really bad disks to rip with it. I just wish we could rip to an ISO file like old Decrypter used to!


Jul 5, 2006 Version: 2.9.8.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Converts excellent for playing DVD on PC. Final DVD+R will not play at all on one of my DVD players (no disc), and with difficulties on the other (I needed to skip to section 2 and then rewind to play).

Tested on two DVDs, one region 1 and one region 2.



Feb 18, 2006 Version: 2.9.7.2 OS: WinXP Ease: 6/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value: 4/10 Overall: 4/10



been using this for a long time; only negative issue I have is when you split to two disc and use the FAB screen instead of a blank screen, it seems to alway ask you to insert disc one a couple of tmes after you put disc 2 in your player. If you ignore this reqest to insert disc 1 it wll go ahead and ply the second disc wth no further issues; seems that this bug creeps back into the software every few updates and then they fix it for a while and the cycle starts over again.


Aug 19, 2005 Version: 2.9.3.5 OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 8/10



I'm excited about this program. Currently using trial version.So far I've only used the dvd9>2dvd5s feature, but this program also shrinks, but haven't tried that feature yet. This software is great if you want an easy way to copy some DVDs to archive. Its quick, it's simple, and no doctorate required. You can copy a double layered dvd9 onto 2 dvd5s in about an hour and a half to 2 hours, from beginning to end. It pretty much does everything for you.

If your like me and you just wanna copy some DVds quickly without getting a headache, this is the tool for you....period.



Apr 24, 2005 Version: 2.83 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I honestly think that DVDFab is the easiest DVD copying software. Might lack some pro features, but perfect for a newbie


Apr 13, 2005 Version: 3.4 OS: Win98 Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



It's hard to judge this proggie, because while I was using the trial it repeatedly tried to "phone home" over the Net many times. I hate programs like this, so I uninstalled it before very long. Despite dead simple ease of use, I recommend free tools like DVD Shrink instead.


Feb 19, 2005 Version: 2.6 Gold OS: Win2K Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 6/10 Overall: 7/10



Just used it to split one DVD9 into two DVD5. Impressed with its simplicity and usability. Best of all, it doesn't transcode so you can keep what's exactly on the original disc. I have never been a fan of "shrinking". I only wanted to back up bit-by-bit. And it's also speedier than DVDRemake. A very useful tool!


Feb 17, 2005 Version: Platinum OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 10/10



Splits or shrinks DVD. Have not used shrink feature. Split works for series or movie disk. If you use wizard it allows you slect a folder or a DVD. Then you have 4 choices some may be grayed if they don't apply to source. If you plan to shrink other tools are better such as dvd shink but to split a disk there is no easier tool. First I thought the second disk had issues with my lite-on LVD 2001 but if you wait it works. With the new version the wait issue was fixed. Does not know how to spilt everthing but most disks work.


Jul 2, 2004 Version: 1.98 OS: WinXP Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 8/10



I'm still surprised, they continue to keep source as DVD only?
Why it is not a DVD folder as well?



Apr 27, 2004 Version: 1.8 OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



I have been using this application since the freeware version. The program has been reliable for me on Windows XP home editon. I used to output to a directory and test with PowerDVD first before burning with Nero. But the DVDfab burning engine works and the discs play in all my DVD players. So, I have started using the internal burning engine. I like how you can set the default audio track and default subtitle in DVDfab. I would suggest DVDfab to anyone that wants a reliable and easy to use solution. DVDfab decrypts the disc so no need for DVD decrypter. It can output to a directory or burn the disc. Hight recommended.


Mar 15, 2004 Version: DVDfab v1.70 OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



the guy right they dont email you , even when you buy it , I email them four times and nothing . and when was the last time they came out with a new version . the free one work better then the one you pay for.


Jan 22, 2004 Version: 1.02 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 5/10



I initially liked this program as it seemed to do a good job. But once I had questions then ran into a problem, the lack of documentation and no replies to my emails requesting support made me glad I'd decided to give it a thorough trial before paying my $40 for it.

The problem arose when I was copying an episodic disk that contained four episodes. DVDFab put episodes 3 & 4 on disk 1 and episodes 1 & 2 on disk 2. I determined, with the aid of another program, that the actual titles numbered 5,6,7, and 8 were episodes 3,4,1 and 2 respectively so deduced that DVDFab automatically determines burn order by actual title number, not episode number. No problem. I'll just redo the disk and alter the destination on the screen that lets you choose what titles go on what disk... or so I thought. But even though I set it up so that files 7 & 8 (episodes 1 & 2) were on disk 1, etc... when I burned the disks, it ignored the order I'd set and burned them the same way it did the first time.. by following title number order so the first two episodes ended up on disk 2 again.

If I'd received some support I'd have purchased this product. But until they fix this bug and actually support their product, I'll look for and use something else.



Jan 16, 2004 Version: 1.02 OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



Made a identical copy for backup of a protected dvd which mirrors the original in video and audio quality. Only problem incountered was program does not indicate when coping is complete.


Jan 16, 2004 Version: dvd fab OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 9/10



Ok this is a great little program and free.
It has ripped 20 DVDs so far and the only problem was bad DVD (scratches). The best part of this 10 of them were region 3 and they are free now and play on both my players and all the players that I have test them on at the local Fry's
(Note: DVD+R compatable with 40% of the players and DVD-R is still batting 100%.)
This version will only rip a DVD, so I am using Veritas RecordNow DX to burn the DVD R. Once again for the price this is a rocking program



Dec 1, 2003 Version: Lite 1.00 Final OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I think it's too much hype about this tool (DVDFab 1.01). Yes it's very easy to use. Yes it's works fast. But one thing strongly dissapoint me and I still thinking DVD X Copy is better. I made 2 disc copy of movie with dvdfab - everything was ok while using dvd on PC. But for surprise my Panasonic RV60 refused to play disc 1 (I was afraid my player will be down - it tried to read dvd very noisy). Second disc was ok (surprise again) and quality was good. Actually I dameged about 4 dvd+r disks while experimenting with this tool. DVD X Copy made copy without any problems and can be played both on pc and player

Regards,
Youtou



Nov 28, 2003 Version: DVDFab 1.01 Trial OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value: 3/10 Overall: 3/10



I have so far used DVDFab on several disks and they all came out great. I use this when it requires more than 75% compression to get the entire disk on 1 DVD-R or if I want it uncompressed, the menu and extras. I agree with the other reader that it would be great if it can include the menu on the second disk.


Oct 25, 2003 Version: 1.00RC2 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



like to see menu and extras on both disks , when you have the second disk in, you cannot go to the menu or extras, dvdxcopy has menu and extras on both disks. but I still like dvdfab over dvdxcopy,and for 39 dollars and the free one, it bets dvdxcopy by a landsilde.and they want 120 dollars and it a piece of shi?


Oct 20, 2003 Version: 1.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 8/10



Just tried the new beta and it looks really good. The main functionality that current tools are missing is a sensible way splitting season discs. This tool does it, and does it well. The product is no longer free, but it easily split several season discs for me.

This is a beta and several features are still greyed out, but the main functionallity is there.



Sep 30, 2003 Version: 1.0 beta OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



It still has a few bugs, but If it doesn't run on your system, don't assume its the product..NOT your particular system.
DVD FAB works great on 4 different systems over here.
All Intel Chipsets on MOBOS, however...
This product does what DVD X COPY was supposed to but never delivered until PLATINUM last month....AND FREE!
I backed up quite a few that wouldn't work sensibly to ONE DISC, using my OWN CUSTOM "PUT IN DISC TWO" screen I created ...This program rocks! tho' the ease of putting your own splash sceen is not great..THE STOCK ONES are non-branded (NO DVD X COPY LOGOS HERE!)



Sep 26, 2003 Version: only one out OS: Win2K Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Does what it says, a great simple fast tool. It allows you to put menu and extra's on two DVD's without having to go through the IFOedit stuff.

Here's a DVDFAB hack that'll allow you to process the dvd without having to rip it first. It won't be on the official homepage so don't look for it there.
