    There's only one Clonedvd that's worth considering, and it's sold by Slysoft.

    There is no easy answer to this question, and in general, I will normally not help anyone asking this kind of question. It's always best to use the original disc you bought at the store. Others may help you. I can't.

    In general, "copying a copy" of a DVD is easier than copying an original, because the copy has already been stripped of copy protection and (usually) shrunk to the size to fit a single-layer DVD5.

    THAT SAID.... copying a copy of a DVD moves you (in most countries) into strictly *illegal* activity. There is a strong legal and ethical argument that you can make a back-up copy of any software you bought for your own use. When you reproduce it for distribution to others... you're out of the grey and into the black. (to quote Neil Young)

    Feel free to post here within reason; it's just I can't help you with those types of questions.

    Did you mean to say " anydvd and clonedvd2 and cloneCD" ?

    CloneCD is awesome for 1:1 Back-Ups
    CDs , DVDs ( SLs and DLs ) ..... even "On the Fly" ( having two DVD Drives )

    I would guess "SL" is single layer and "DL" is dual/double layer.
     
  10. If you have small children, and you are not very careful, the children can easily
    damage a disk. That is the only reason I copy the movies that I buy for my children.
    I put the originals away and use the copies.
    sometimes the baby will find a disk too close to the floor and he will play with it.
    At this point it is toast, and I copy a copy in clonedvd2 using the third option
    "WRITE EXISTING DATA".
    It is much faster, and I keep the files on my hard drive as long as I can in order to use this facility.
    I do not think of myself as copying DVDs. I am simply making working copies of my originals.

    Yeah, that's a great idea. Many people backup the DVD just to protect the original.

    If you already made a copy of a movie, and you want to make a copy of that copy, CloneDVD should be able to do that, even Windows Explorer can write files to a DVD.
