Although external drives, USB sticks and cloud storage are now the most popular ways to go when it comes to storing/backing up your data, many still prefer to keep it traditionally and use a DVD and a copy software instead. When it comes to available DVD copy programs, Windows users are luckier than Mac users and they have more options to choose from.
Here are 4 of the best DVD copy programs for Mac in 2018:
- DVDFab DVD Copy. It is one of the best and fastest DVD copy software you can use for your Mac. It is compatible with Mac OS X v10.6 – to 10.12 and includes 6 modes to choose from: full disc, main movie, clone/burn, merge, split and customize. You can get the DVDFab software for approximately $50. As you’ve probably figured it out, DVDFab DVD Copy is more than just a copier. It is also a cloner and a burner, all in one. The software can usually make a DVD copy within half an hour
- DVD Cloner. Fortunately, DVD Cloner also has a version for Mac, which supports Mac OS X 10.5 and later. The program is a bit more expensive than DVDFab: you can get it for $60. DVD Cloner supports DVD and Blu-ray and can copy a DVD in approximately 45 minutes. While that’s not as fast as DVDFab, it is still pretty fast. It has a preview mode so you can check the quality of the video disc you’ve just made, 3 DVD copying options and a very simple/basic interface. One of the best things about this software is the fact that it can copy damaged or scratched DVDs, which is a really big advantage over most competitors
- Tipard DVD Cloner. It is one of the fastest programs and it can copy a full DVD in 25 minutes. In addition to Windows, Tipard is also compatible with Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10. The program has a very user-friendly interface, which makes it more suitable for amateur users, especially given that it doesn’t have as many complex features as other programs, just the standard ones. However, you can add/remove subtitles, choose what parts to remove or leave in the DVD copy, rip audio tracks and more. You can buy the Tipard software for $55
- Xilisoft DVD Copy. Xilisoft for Mac can be purchased for approximately $50. The software is compatible with Mac OS X v10.6 – OS 10.11 (El Capitan). It gives you two options; full disc copy and main movie. It is a good choice for newbies as it is not a complicate software. The interface is very straightforward, you basically just have one single screen with all the available tools. However, it is not the best out there in terms of speed, as it takes an hour to make a disc. On the other hand, Xilisoft is quite impressive when it comes to the compression quality, which is really high.
