The good: DVD-Cloner 8 is a versatile and easy-to-use DVD decrypting/copying/burning software with powerful features Set.

The bad: You need to install an extra DVD ripper Lite(free) to convert DVD movies to AVI, MPEG format.


The fourthly-placed product in my review of 5 DVD Ripper software is the DVD Cloner 8, which is a worthwhile application in every aspect. The application provides 1:1 DVD Copy mode which preserves the original picture quality perfectly when you Copy DVDs/Blu-rays to computer, DVD-5 to DVD-5 or DVD-9 to DVD-9. With advanced DVD decrypting technique, it can automatically detect and decrypt CSS, ARccOS and some new encryptions from Sony and Disney movies, this ensures you can copy or convert movie DVDs/BDs favourably. In addtion, fast ripping speed, insuitive interface and simple one-click operation make me give it 3 stars .

Quality of Copy

Throughout using the DVD-cloner 8 i was very impressed with the application’s excellent copy quality. There is no lag in the video and no muffled audio when i ripped the movies off DVD/Blu-ray Discs. However, when i used the built-in DVD ripper Lite to convert DVD to AVI format, the finished quality remained clear and very acceptable although the AVI movie was not as crisp as the original. This is inevitable as the videos converted from one type of compression into another type of compression, there will be a certain degree of mass loss.

Speed and stability

Compared with other DVD Ripper software i tested, the DVD-cloner 8 is the most exceptional one when it comes to ripping/converting speed. While it always takes a fair amount of time to convert large files, i was pleased at that it took just 30 minutes to copy a whole DVD to hard disk. But other similar product requaired at least 45 minutes under the same test environment configure. The stability of DVD-cloner 8 was also excellent. i didn’t ever have any problems with the application crashing or shutting down for random unknown reasons.


The DVD-cloner 8 is a great product choice when you want to decrpt/copy/convert/burn Movie DVDs or Blu-rays. The user-oriented interface takes a lot of the guesswork out of DVD/BD ripping and burning, and the program does a lot of the work automatically (like detecting the disc format, screen scens, ratio, episodes and chapters.). I highly recommed DVD-cloner 8 to anyone who want to redistribute their DVDs/BDs with a simple and feature-packed way.
