    Excellent program

    I've also seen a couple of reviews suggesting that it crashes at times,and also may not back-up on a completely reliable basis.

    The full version of the program is supposed to be a better bet,but as a few people have said,there are lots of other options.

    Been using DVD XCopy Express for the last two months. So far I've had only one movie it wouldn't copy. Copies everything else perfectly, and fast too.

    Granted, you either lose the surround sound or the picture quality, but it still makes 'backing up' easy as can be...

    How is it a 'back-up' then?
    I really can't understand this. On the couple of occasions that dvds have got damaged at home, I've never had any trouble getting a replacement disc from the supplier anyway - even with imported R1 discs.
    Can someone explain to me why (especially if you are in to HC), you would want to make inferior copies of dvd sofware?

    I'm not trying to provoke anyone, I just don't understand why people do this.

    Got to agree with Nike on this one - I got the Express software free with the main software - I highly recommend the full version (provided you don't mind dual layer discs being on 2 separate DVDs most of the time) but really don't recommend Express unless (i) you don't really care about PQ or (ii) you don't want your kids scratching up the DVDs you bought for them and so back up onto one disc using Express. The times I've used Express it has always worked and has a great user interface (much better than the freeware I know of).

    Please guys, in the past I have bought dxdxpress and dvd95copy and after around 300 burns, yes 300, the MOST reliable is by far DVDSHRINK...and it's free!!

    I was so impressed with the new version a made a decent contribution to his retirement fund. IMHO It's SO easy to use, u can do films and episodic dvd's easily.

    In fact when making a backup, yes a true backup, of ALIAS, it didn't work with dvd95 as the 2nd or 3rd episode would skip, but did with Shrink.

    I'm not sponsored by shrink , but download it and donate $5 or so, he deserves it.

    Kam.

    My copies to date have copied with good pq and full surround seems to be there too, as the 5.1 symbols light up on two dvd players.

    As I'm only using a TV in stereo at the moment I can't fully confirm that yet.

    I purchased online, EXPRESS ($69) and used it for a few months, it's easy to use and that's what won the day for me.

    THe PQ was pretty good with version 2.5, I think it was when I upgraded to version 3.0 that the compression rate started to get too much.

    These last seven months i've used DVD SHRINK, DECRYPTOR and RECORDNOWMAX DX (the first two being free).

    I'd never use EXPRESS again, but hope my previous purchase helps them in their fight against those bastards who invoke the D.C.M.A.

    Why do you imagine they are inferior to the original ???

    Yes if you use any sort of compression on the backed up disc you'll have a reduction in quality, but not if you just want a back up of the film itself, usually fits on a standard Dvd/9 disc.

    Excellent for the ones I let the kids watch in their bedroom (Original Diseny disc don't come cheap do they) safeguards the original.

    Another great use for DVD Shrink is when dropping the film on the HCPC hard drive for watching on projector/plasma.
