First of all, if it wasn't for the help of some great people on this forum, this software would have been in the toilet a long time ago. Thanks

Is this software on it's last legs? I think so. According to this link http://dvdxcopy.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/118027 it states "THIS SITE IS THE OFFICAL SUPPORT WEB SITE FOR DVDXCOPY INTERNATIONAL .COM " . Then you find out the DVDXCopy Chief Moderator post this "THERE IS NOTHING TO DO TO SAVE MR.MOORES COMPANY...
HIS COMPANY IS NOW CLOSED..***(DEAD)*** I WOULD SAY IT TIME TO MOVE ON...THERES OTHER PROGRAMS OUT THERE...I CAN POINT YOU TO ANOTHER PROGRAM...ITS 100% BETTER... http://dvdxcopy.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/98133 . I don't see this as a good sign.
I recently inquired about a post on this forum that was "xcopy max burn is 4X, so media must be 4X or less ". To confirm this I submitted a form through the DVDxcopy international.com support page. My 2 main questions were whether this max 4X statement was true and if they ever intend to supply us with updates because it's just a matter of time before it's impossable to find 4X media. Remember how fast cd-r media increased in speed once the technology got going. Well after two replies from them that had absulutly nothing to do with the questions I ask, I finaly got this answer.
"We are an international based software distributor selling off our remaining inventory of DVDXCOPY that we bought before the court rullings. We are aware of all the issues our there and our egineers are looking ways to upgrade and advance the software in new directions but we do not have any definate plans at the moment. "
Sure sounds to me like we can't expect updates anytime soon.
So what are the consumers left with? A sometimes very unstable program who's last updates are 20 plus months old. A program that's not able to rip the newer encyrpted movies out there without an add on program from someone else? http://dvdxcopy.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/98133 ( I used this additional program with xcopy and still had no luck). A software that will no longer have the recomended 4X media availiable to use? Without some immediate updates I think all this is true. Unfortionatly I and many others paid $100 a couple years ago for a program that will soon be as outdated as a DOS program.
So is xcopy dead? What do you think????

Try the program that the chief mod recomended.
Good luck

this has ref. to your anxiety regarding the vesions of dvd x copy 1.xxx being tied up to the 4x media of the dvd-r and dvd+r versions. while using the default burn engine, this could be true.
the advanced option of going thru the external nero engine is meant for problems like this. if u have the latest authorised version of nero express suite installed, and have a great system, please note that this is taken care of. for ur info, yesterday, i burnt a dvd-r 8x from tdk on my sony dual layer 710 a thru the nero engine and that too a full 4.gb in just 12 + 7.5 min! 12 min for the rip and 7.5 for the burn.
no hassels. please try.
