XCopy9 DVD Copy Software Review
This week I will continue the series on DVD copying programs with reviews on Bling Software's three DVD copying programs, namely XCopyDVD, XCopyPSP, and XCopyPOD. These programs represent the next generation of copying programs and can be purchased and downloaded online individually or in a bundle called XCopy9.
DVD to DVD Copying With XCopyDVD
XCopyDVD is very similar to 123CopyDVD program reviewed last week in that with it you can make copies of DVD movies to writable DVD discs. Its burning engine supports dual-layer burners thus giving perfect digital copies. As well it can also re-compress the movie to allow for older DVD burners and discs which have smaller space available than commercial movie discs. The re-compression process is fast and isn't very noticeable on the copied disk. As well the program allows for all multi-channel audio (including DTS, 5.1, 6.1, etc.) to be duplicated exactly. Finally, the program comes with free online updates and 24-hour technical support. XCopyDVD can be purchased online for just $29.99.
DVD to PSP Copying With XCopyPSP
XCopyPSP is where Bling Software's offerings get interesting. This unique product allows you to rip a DVD movie and re-compress it to fit onto a Playstation Portable (PSP) memory stick. This product is a terrific idea for those with long commutes or to take a movie with you when traveling. The copies made are great in quality, both in terms of sound and video. Plus the XCopyPSP software is rather inexpensive at just $19.99 when purchased online from Bling Software's site.
DVD to iPod Copying With XCopyPOD
XCopyPOD is very similar to XCopyPSP in that it allows you to rip any commercial DVD movie and play it back on the latest generation of Apple iPods. Plus, since the iPod can store up to 150 hours of movies on it you can have around 90 full length movies on it (or the entire series of Seinfeld, etc.). The only drawback to XCopyPOD comes from the fact that the iPod's screen is only 2.5 inches in size and thus you aren't going to see a lot of detail on it. Still the video and sound quality are more than good enough to be able to watch for hours. Note the software is not avilable for Apple computers at this time. XCopyPOD can be bought online for just $19.99.
