DVD Copy: Backup your DVD movies!
Dvd copy is a program designed to let people make backups of their dvds onto computer or cd. In order to streamline the process, we ve provided a step-by-step guide to configuration and use of the program. Most dvd players can read vcds with no problem.
The software allows you to create vcds easily. A reasonably modern computer, purchased within the last two or three years, will be able to process one hour of video in two hours. In other words, if your dvd is two hours long, expect to spend four hours re-encoding.
Fortunately, the process is mostly automated You just need to start it, and then you can go to bed, or go to work, or whatever you want. Most shorter features will only need one cd. As a general rule, most cds will store about 80 minutes of video, depending on the quality of the cd.
(cd brands will vary between storing 650 mb and 750 mb, with some examples going up to 800 mb. ) longer features might need two cds. It s very rare that a single feature is so long that it requires more than two cds to archive. You only need a cd writer to create backup copies of your dvds.
However, you do need a dvd reader. Vcds have better quality than vhs tapes, but are not quite as good as dvds. In general, the loss of quality isn t noticeable on a television. Fortunately, you retain the aspect ration and full sound quality. Backup/protect your original dvd movies now before it is too late.
