CloneDVD – A Powerful DVD Copy and Backup Tool


CloneDVD is an impressive DVD copy and backup tool capable of eliminating all disc protections (CSS, RC, RCE and Sony ARccOS) during the burning process. Furthermore, users can customize audio streams, subtitles and chapters according to individual needs.

One downside I encountered with this software was an occasional audio/video sync issue caused by ffmpeg; hopefully future updates will address this. Overall, though, it is an excellent program.

Disc space saving or having an incompatible player are other factors which may warrant its use as well.

CloneDVD features an intuitive and straightforward user interface, complete with buttons for functions and buttons as well as two columns displaying information for source and target media respectively. To begin the copying process, first insert their desired disc into a DVD drive before clicking “Source” button and choosing either “DVD Disc” or “DVD Folder”, depending on whether they possess physical copies of it or an ISO image file of it on their computer.

CloneDVD can compress long footage at high speed to maximize quality without visual degradation, thanks to its powerful transcoding engine that is significantly faster than that used by other DVD copying programs like DVD Shrink.

This program can also be used to make movies from scratch or edit an existing DVD movie by adding menus and extra features, merging two or more titles together into a single DVD, adding subtitles, selecting various audio tracks, previewing video clips before making modifications, and selecting media player to view video clips and preview audio tracks before final output file is created.

Furthermore, its compatibility with various DVD players and home video game consoles provides extra value.

Another useful feature of DVD Shrink is its ability to compress movies down, thus freeing up space on a disc. Furthermore, this software eliminates the need for a DVD burner by converting movies directly into ISO image files that can then be burned onto blank DVDs or stored external hard drives – perfect for frequent travelers with DVD movies! Unfortunately however, this feature won’t work with discs that have been encrypted with DVD Shrink and require separate decryption programs such as AnyDVD to break their encryption.


CloneDVD makes DVD backup easy with its effortless backup capability of movie titles or chapters extracted automatically, using advanced transcoding technology, for use on smaller discs without losing quality or having any impact on their readability by standard DVD players. It works similarly for Blu-Rays.

Cloned files can also be converted to various multimedia formats for playback on portable media devices like iPad, iPod, iPhone, PSP and cell phones using an advanced conversion engine that takes advantage of multiple processors for faster converting speeds.
