321 Studios DVD X Copy Platinum with Crack

Image Hosted by

Occasionally I'll be posting random shit like software/apps and other nerdy things like comics and old school nintendo/snes games. For my first software post I'm sharing one of my most favorite and frequently used applications that I use to make "back-up copies" of movies I buy and own. I have to give thanks to Jimmy Smithson over at Bust The Facts and All Hell Iz Breakin Loose for telling me about this app a few years ago, along with DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.

I'll give a brief but interesting history on the company and software. 321 Studios first released DVD X Copy in 2003 and the company was taken to court by several major studios and in February was ruled illegal by a judge. Subsequently, 321 Studios closed down and all their DVD copying software was taken off the shelves (although some retailers continued selling the remaing inventory) leaving people to find other programs to back-up movies. Over the next couple years there have been clone programs with the same name popping up, some with other names but the same basic layout. One company claims to have improved upon the original software but I'm pretty skeptical about them all. I tried one called DVD Clone and was not impressed with the resulting quality of the copy. As far as problems with DVD X Copy I only run into one every once in a while: I'll get an error during burning, so that's when I use DVD Decrypter to rip the movie to my hard drive, then use DVD Shrink to burn it. Between the three I've been able to burn every single movie I've ever tried. I'm not sure where I originally got this from but the first time I downloaded it, it came with a serial number to activate it. I lost that first copy a while ago and found this version which has a working crack and I've tested it and have been using it for over a year now, so there shouldn't be a problem installing it. Make sure to read the read me file included before installation. If you're looking for copying software and haven't tried this I suggest giving it a try at least. If you do run to any problems drop a comment and I'll try an help.

This is for Windows only. It requires about 10 Gigs of free space to temporarily store the ripped files on your hard drive (the program deletes them after burning). Here's the links to DVD Decrypter here and DVD Shrink here, both are free programs.

I've been looking for something like this for quite some time, thanks for sharing! I'm going to ask a possible stupid question but it would require an answer regardless. Would I need a DVD readable drive in order for these programs to work?

Machiventa said...

yes you do. i don't think there's any way around it.
