View Full Version : DVD Cloner or DVDFab or what to copy DVD's
06-27-2010, 08:43 AM
I have been using "DVD Shrink" (free)but newer protection sometimes stumps it. I tried a 30day evaluation of "DVD Fab" http://www.dvdfab.com/en/dvd-to-dvd.htm and it worked easily & great but it's costly. I haven"t tried "DVD Cloner" http://www.hermanstreet.com/store/smarthtml/dvd-cloner-7-t20.html?&ICID=AB-DVD%20Cloner%202009-12-14%20t20&ofm but heard good things but also costly. Any suggestions?

Back in school when I was cloning tons of DVDs everyday I used DVD Shrink for 99% of DVDs and DVD Fab for the occasional disc with heavy duty protection (Disney, etc). I can't say much for the cost (I didn't pay for it) but it worked well, albeit slowly, for those occasions without fail.

...I used DVD Shrink for 99% of DVDs and DVD Fab for the occasional disc with heavy duty protection (Disney, etc)... I have been using DVD Shrink for years, it fails lately. I know DVD Fab is good but expensive $61 for lifetime.

Yeah, I guess DVD Shrink has been out of development for a looong time, and yes DVD Fab is pretty pricey. There must a cheaper option or maybe even a free, open source app out there that can do what DVD Fab does. I'll look into it. Let me know if you find anything.

It's been a long time since my DVD ripping days and back then the only movies that gave me issues were Disney movies. I'm not sure if other studioes have followed suit, but I looked up if there was any way to rip a Disney DVD with handbrake (http://handbrake.fr/), a popular, open-source, all-purpose video transcoder application. Here is just one of the many discussions i could find by googling:
