May not have as much built in stuff as DVD shrink (I.E Combine programs to one structure) but it is the only one that can output a good movie folder from a faulty one when used with ANYDVD. dvd shrink sometimes mess up titles so I had to go back and re-rip them. So for archiving alone this is the way to go

Thought I would try this after reading the reviews, But when I did a test between clonedvd and dvd shrink, dvd shrink was about 3 minutes faster, For an old program shrink is hard to beat, and it sure works great.

The only thing that Shrink does better is blank out unwanted menu items - useful if you are using RipIt4Me. Other that that, this smokes Shrink.

I don't understand your comments cobalt, they make no sense. CloneDVD is faster, renders better, and is easier to use than DVD Shrink. It is also at least as, if not more, configurable than DVD Shrink. And, get this, it has it's own burning engine, unlike DVD Shrink. DVD Shrink was great in it's day, then Nero Recode came out and stomped it, which makes sense since Recode was created by the guy who created DVD Shrink. And then CloneDVD came out and put the rest to shame. The only other too that bears consideration is DVD Fab, but personally, I prefer CloneDVD.

The old and free DVD Shrink slaps this one around 100 times and than throws it in the garbage bin.

Why pay so much if there's a tool that is 100x better and an unlimited times cheaper alternative.

Did I miss something, but aren't most of the "New" features for this version the same as for 2.9.2.5? How can they be new in both versions?

Just a great little program, simple in its genius. It has NEVER failed to rip or to burn. For example, I will get a "Calibration Error" from Nitwit Nero -- which always means that Nero has yet again miscalculated file size. Shut down Nero. Over to CloneDVD. Never a problem. It is fast. It is cheap. It is reliable. What more can one ask? And I love that little Mexican Hat Dance song that blares when the burn is done!

CloneDVD with AnyDVD is simply the best out there. Overall results is superb! CloneDVD is very user friendly and is updated on a regular basis. I have been using this software for the past year with 100%+ burns. Try the trial download and give it a whirl. You won't regret it...I didn't. Two thumbs up!!!

Have a support issue. I sent Slysoft support an issue. I have 2 DL DVD+/-RW drives, an HP TS-H552L Litescribe and a MicroAdvantage 16X8. The MicroAdvantage work fine, but the HP won't recognize a DL disk. They asked for screen prints of the Add/Remove programs list and my proceses from Task Manger. I supplied these and told them that the HP wouldn't recognize DL with CloneDVD/AnyDVD but other software works fine with it. They then asked if I was running Roxio DirectCD or Drag2Disc. I told them yes and re-told them about the HP not recognizing DL. They they said to deactive the Roxio stuff. I did this and stated again that the HP wasn't recognizing DL. Their last response was "So you won't try it. Ok, case closed". Their support was NOT a lot of help

Great software. This and anydvd make backing up a fast one step process. High quality down to 55%. Backs up ANY dvd in about an hour in a one step process. Before this I used dvddecrypter + dvd2one + copytodvd. Better then dvdshrink. Very easy to use. Almost no learning curve.

Basically, this tool plus SlySoft's AnyDVD will allow you to copy any DVD on planet earth - in perfect picture/audio quality. I've shrunk movie-only copies to a DVD-R, I've copied whole discs to DVD+R DLs. All with no problems whatsoever. This is the best and easiest tool I have used. I tested and tried a lot of different tools online (and lurked and read these pages for several months doing research), but this was hands-down the easiest to use and had no learning curve. So easy it's amazing that it works as well as it does.

Without a doubt the best 9>5 transcoder available. You can safely compress to 60% without visual quality loss. Results are indeed better than Dvd Shrink under heavy compression. It's much faster, also. Do not hesitate; Clonedvd2 is money well spent.

Earlier version had no problem at all. Latest version does not perform as well and creates coasters. Tried 3 time and gave up. Went back to using earlier V.

Hi!!

This tool is awesome!!! Super-fast, the quality is great and it's repairing possible authoring errors on original DVD's, that can be used as copy protection (for example "The Aviator PAL"...when I tried it with Nero or Shrink, they simply says, that the dvd structure is invalid and over). With using DVDFab Decrypter for ripping and Nero for burning, this is a perfect tool. I like the transcoding system very much (it just lowers the original curve of bitrate for desired percentage - that means no analyzing and super fast encoding and all parts of the movie have the same compression)!! That's the way, which Nero and others should go.

Nice program which worked fine until I upgraded to this version. Now writes coasters 2 times out of 3 to media I had been using with NO coasters previously. (Same spindles too--TDK 4X (Taiwan-Costco)and Taiyo Yuden 8x (RIMA).) Now get write errors about 30 seconds into the burn. (Pioneer 108, 1.20 firmware.)

My real complaint is with "support". After two emails and two weeks, still no reply.

Wonderful program! This is coming from someone who goes back to the days of X-Copy and X-Copy Xpress. CloneDvd, in conjunction with AnyDVD, provides the easiest (in my opinion), to date, way to back up a movie. It is ridiculously simple. Newbies might have some what of hard time in the beginning identifying what files they would not want to include in the final version of the back-up but most are not going to have that problem. Also, there are wonderful guides on the net and in this very own site that provide excellent assistance.

I would also have to agree with an earlier poster who hinted that with too much compression you are probably going to notice a difference to which I agree. Although you would have to compress pretty low (under 60%) to see any noticeable difference b/w orignal and copy.

Worth every penny; definately recommend.

bugged. If you backup a dvd with say 2 Audio Tracks
1.dts and audio track 2.ac3/2 (5.1) then select
choosse audio track 2 as default it will always select track 1.dts even if track 2.ac3 chosen as the default audio preference.

So no matter how many audio tracks you want to backup with the dvd whatever Clone dvd lists as audio track 1 will always be the default audio track.
