Are there enough features to handle most situations? Can you cut out unwanted menus or extra features? Is there support for episodic DVDs? How is compression calculated and handled? Can it decrypt copy protected DVDs? Can it make backup copies of games like XBOX or PS2?
DVD Copy Quality
It may surprise you that a Digital Copy can be different from DVD Burning software to DVD Burning software. We check to make sure the copy has excellent quality. Some DVD Burning software leaves skips or flaws in the audio or video.
Does the DVD Burning software offer compression? How strong is the compression offered by the DVD Burning software? Most DVD movies are two layers of data (up to 9 GB). Most DVD burners and DVD-R media is only single layer (DVD-5) which fits 4.5GB. Thus, almost everything needs to be compressed to fit on one disc. However, you can always record to 2 DVD-R's in fully uncompressed mode with any of the DVD Burning Software we review. We make sure the compression works well, and the end result is a copy that's virtually flawless.
Nearly every DVD movie released these days are encrypted with the Content Scrambling System (CSS) in order to prevent illegal DVD duplication. The only way to backup the DVD is with CSS decryption. Some DVD Burning software offer the CSS decryption built into the software. Others offer a simple link to 3rd party CSS decryptors to avoid legal hassles. We make sure that CSS decryption is either built into the DVD Burning software, or can easily be integrated to make any DVD backup copy a snap.
Customer Support & Help
How useful is the help information provided? Is there online help available? If you have a question not answered by the help, how's the customer support?
Now, with all these factors in mind, I hope that the nex time you shop around for some DVD burning software, you'll get nothing but the best.
