I have a huge library of DVDs that I'd like to back up and so I jumped at the chance to review the WinX DVD
Ripper Platinum software when it was offered to me. After installing WinX DVD Ripper, I grabbed a DVD off my shelf
and put it in my computer.
A message popped up saying this DVD had
the new encryption protection. I had grabbed the new Star Trek movie.
The www.WinXDVD.com website had
easy to follow instructions on how to back up a DVD with this new
encryption protection. I had not been aware of any new encryption so
I tried to back up the DVD with an older back up program that I had
used before. Like WinX DVD had predicted, the older software didn't
know how to handle backing up the Star Trek DVD.
The WinX DVD Ripper
Platinum program offers many choices of back up formats. I was very
pleased to see that I only had to make one selection to back up a
DVD. I don't understand all those settings that are available.
Luckily, WinX DVD defaults the settings depending on your
destination, but lets those at the expert level tweak the settings to
suit their needs. I started going through all of my DVDs and backing
them up to an external hard drive that is easily portable. For my
favorite movies, I also used WinX DVD Ripper to back them up into a
format suitable for the iPod. Again I only had to select the “to
iPod” tab and let the program do the rest.
