"Simple single process DVD Copying for Mac users."

Wondershare effort into the DVD Copying biz for Mac users is a decent one and they offer a good product for those that are searching for an easy solution for making simple duplicates of their DVD movie collection. Their DVD Copy app comes in two flavors which are: DVD Copy for Mac and DVD Copy Pro for Mac. The difference between the two applications are that the Pro version includes a shrinking ability to fit dual layer discs onto a single layer. Both applications allow for easy duplicating from both single layer and dual layer movie discs in addition to copying the disc onto your hard drive for disc less viewing. Listed below are all of the features you can expect to find in this software.

Screenshot of Wondershare DVD Copy for Mac▪ This top grade DVD Copy software can help you to copy D9 to D9, D5 to D9 and D5 to D5 disc with 100% original quality. The Pro version supports the additional DVD9 to DVD5 (shrink to fit option).

▪ You can opt to make a copy to a DVD Folder on your hard drive or copy the disc to VIDEO_TS file.

▪ Make a copy of your DVD to a single .ISO file which you can mount and watch like a regular DVD or burn at a later time to a blank DVD.

▪ Make a copy to a .dvdmedia file: this is a format that is supported by your DVD Player app on your Mac. This is the recommended file format to use if you want to create a movie collection on your machine or local network.

Easy To Use Interface

The screenshot above show the simplicity of this software. Since it's a one function application you should expect an overly easy to understand user interface. Wondershare has done a nice job with the look here by incorporating all of the high res Mac look icons and simple step processes. The settings area is a snap and appears after you mount your DVD disc. During the copying process you are shown a disc image and a percentage bar which shows your current progress and remaining time. There really is not much else to say about this since that's all there is to it. I'll sum it up this way: If you want an easy, out of the box solution for copying DVD movies on your Mac then this is a good solution for you.

BurnWorld's Final Verdict

Despite the simplicity and lack of more video editing features, Wondershare has done a very good job with their entry into this software category. If a DVD copy application is all you require then this will be a reliable solution to use. However is you want more video editing features look at their Video Converter Ultimate software which is only a few bucks more with many more options.
