I have several noob questions, that cross several versions of AnyDVD, so tell me if I need to post this somewhere else. I have been reading for hours on multiple forums, wikipedia, AnyDVD faqs, and I think I am just getting myself more confused so please don't flame me... 1) If I use anyDVD HD to burn my HD DVDs to my hard drive do I need it to watch them? I only have a couple HD DVD's and I can't justify paying $30 for software just to backup $30 worth of HD DVDs. 2) I don't understand the differences between clone DVD and anyDVD... what can 1 do that the other can not? Do I really need both if I just want to backup my DVDs to HDD, watch them on the computer and if I chose to later maybe burn them to a DVD? 3) Do any of these options compress the DVD into a smaller file size? I assume that reduces some picture quality. True? 4) Also, what makes anyDVD software better than DVDfab or others? It seems rather expensive, but like I said, I'm pretty confused about features at this point. Thanks in advance!
