DVDFab DVD Copy as the name suggests is DVD Copy solution for physical DVD discs, ISOs, and DVD folders. DVDFab DVD Copy is the perfect solution for encrypted DVD discs. Encrypted DVDs can’t be copied to other blank discs because of their scrambled data. DVDFab DVD Copy not only removes this DVD encryption but it also lets you save your DVD disc movies as ISO, folder, or you can even burn your original DVD data to a new blank DVD5 or DVD9.
DVDFab DVD Copy basically provides six copy functions and they are listed below.
- Full Disc: Copy the entire DVD disc to an ISO or a folder or directly burn it to a blank DVD5 or DVD9.
- Main Movie: Only copy the main movie and skip the rest. You also have options to ‘Choose Other Titles’ and select multiple DVD videos for copying and save them as an ISO, folder, or burn to a blank DVD disc.
- Clone/Burn: Make a copy or clone the DVD disc to an ISO in a 1:1 lossless ratio.
- Split: Split a DVD9 disc into two DVD5 discs.
- Customize: Copy any content from the DVD disc you want.
