    to all the veterans--newbie here, just wanted to know, i have the dvd x copy plat ver 3.2.1. do i really need the 4.0.3.8 update to make backups of my movies? or will the 3.2.1 (retail version) do it own its own. apparently, the 4.0.3 is being sold on e-bay--just want to know if i should get it. or will the 4.0.3 update "impair" my ability to backup movies.

    I also have 321 and it worked fine. BUT there is no need to buy the 4 v. from ebay. That is a free download for you. Only problem is that the newer versions are ripper free and you wont be able to use DVDx as a stand alone once you "upgrade" You will need a ripper. Don't ask how I know because it upsets me I wasted $150 on it.

    Guys, I don't know the versions (My stuff is 3 years old and had rippers) BUT I spoke not too long ago with DVD XCopy’s Chief Moderator and was informed by him that the recommended addition was AnyDVD or DVD Region Free (est. cost $#9.99 ea.).

    If you have a pre-RF version I suggest you do not upgrade -

    When you decide you want more control over your backups, come on back - We have a couple of programs (4 FREE) that will backup DVD’s with less mouse clicks than DVD Xcopy :)

    AAR, Welcome to the Club -

    thank you for both of the replies...pete, you seem to be the sage aroud these forums. i've seen your posts all over the place...bravo. anyhow, i am completely new to this. i got the 3.2.1 version, lady i spoke to said it comes with a "ripper"...uh? anyhow, my concern is, i want to be able to backup any movie that i please(mainly why i bought this dvd x platnium version. apparently, the version i purchased is the "pre ban" version...whatever that means. anyhow, my goal as i stated above,
    1) backup any movie that i want. can this be done and if so do i need that 4.0.3 version from e-bay?
    2) i am thinking about picking up a dual layer burner this summer by sony (700a...can't wait) any suggestions?

    C56136,

    I would be remiss if I didn't state straight up front that I, like 99% of everyone here dislikes 321 products.

    We can do better backups with free software than most do with $$$$ software -

    My words to you - play with what you have - when you're ready to have more control over your backups and in fact - Our programs require LESS mouse clicks than DVD XCopy research DVD Shrink and DVD DeCrypter -

    The downloads are here and so are the guides :p)

    Welcome to the Neighborhood -

    Pete
