I would like to express an opinion (my own) about the DVD back up software called DVD X Copy Platinum. I am very green when it comes to this kind of stuff and to damn old to ever really be able to grasp all of the wonderful and amazing things that can be done on these little boxes called computers although I still love them and keep trying. It was because of my limited skills and inexperience that I purchased DVD x Copy and DVD x Copy Platinum (believing all the crap that was advertised). Unfortunately I hadn't stumbled on to this great forum. Well after many hours trying to get these programs to work and all my failures I decided to look for help from the makers of these products. After numerous emails and countless phone calls looking for help and support (with absolutely no satisfaction) I decided to give up and face the fact that I had blown over $100 dollars US. I stumbled on to this site while still looking for some kind of backup help, Thank Goodness. I looked around and did some searching and low and behold I was able to find all kinds of wonderful software and information. Best of all it was free and worked great and support was available for the asking. Just the kind of thing I had been looking for when I blew all that money earlier on DVD X Copy software. Well to make a long story short and at the risk of offending some of the folks here I want to make the folowing statement: IMHO I would suggest to anyone thinking about purchasing any DVD x Copy software to save their money and don't buy it. Save yourself grief and heartache and download Shrink or Decrypter on this site for free. Both are great and very easy to use. Wish I had known about these programs much earlier. I want to wish you all the best of luck. HW.
