Sad, sad, sad! No more burning for your hard drive with DVD X Copy Platinum! Pressed by legal issues, the developers of DVD X Copy Platinum have discontinued the option to burn for your hard drive. Additionally, they have put so many defenses against software piracy that now it is next to impossible to copy a DVD or a game even for your own personal use. If you want to use DVD X Copy to copy PlayStation games, this might prove impossible. The reason is that many games have such safeguards that even if you somehow manage to copy the game from the original media, the copy will hardly work. If you don�t give up easily, you can still have a try because you lose nothing.
Anyway, getting a new copy of a game you love is expensive and older games are hard to find. The reason why all this is happening is because many people abused the features of DVD X Copy Platinum and performed illegal activities. It is sad that because of abusers honest users are deprived of DVD X Copy Platinum. The program was banned in 2003 and there are no more genuine copies of it, not to mention technical support. You can purchase fake knockoffs of the original 321 Studio product, but you must understand that you get what you pay for, not the good stuff guaranteed to work. The price may be low, but you will not have the support you may need because whoever is selling the phony software may be caught and go down at any time.
A decent substitute for personal use is DVD NeXt Copy. DVD NeXt copy is great for creating spare copies of your DVDs. 1 Click DVD Copy is also an alternative because it is easy to use. Both DVD NeXt Copy and 1 Click DVD Copy come with support and extras, which will help you create great copies of your DVDs.
Buying a legitimate DVD copying program has the advantage that you can always contact their support team if you encounter a problem. Also, you might be entitled to free updates, which is great if copy protection algorithms change in the meantime. DVD X Copy PlayStation games can be used only if you manage to find a crack for the codes, which are built into the program.
For many people this is unacceptable and if you are reluctant to do it personally, ask a friend to help you. Forums are one of the places where you can ask for help, if you are searching for a solution how to copy a DVD for personal use only. Don�t risk copying DVDs for profit because the penalties are severe. I must admit that I do figure out why companies are using such draconian measures to protect their products from unauthorized copying.
But on the other hand, I don�t think it is fair to make honest people, who want to make a personal backup copy of the DVDs they own, pay such a high price. Anyway, they have already paid once when they have bought the DVD. But it is good that there are workarounds and despite the fact that DVD X Copy Platinum is not on the market anymore, there are still alternatives to make a legal DVD copy for personal use.
