How to choose proper copy mode?

There are four copy modes you can choose from to make your copy.
  • The entire disc
This mode will keep everything that is on the original DVD, such as menus, trailers and special features, and so on. If you want the entire content on the original DVD, you should choose this mode. Most commercial DVD movies, including all of the extras, are MUCH larger than 4.7GB, so the program will need to shrink the original content to fit on a 4.7GB blank DVD. By doing this, you will lose some video quality, but usually the quality is still very good. When you copy a DVD that is larger than 4.7GB, the program will display a prompt asking you whether to shrink it or not. You should click "yes" if you want to copy all content to a single 4.7GB blank DVD. You can click "no" and copy all content to an 8.5GB blank DVD if you don't want to lose any video quality.
  • Only the main movie
This mode will only copy the main movie and exclude all of the other content. Some main movies are still larger than 4.7GB, in such case, you need shrink it to fit for a 4.7GB disc. Please click "yes" when our program prompt you to shrink it or not. 
  • Split to two DVD5 (4.7GB) discs
This mode will copy the beginning of the main movie, the menus and all extras to disc 1, with the remainder of the main movie copied to disc 2. If you want to copy the entire disc to 4.7GB blank DVDs and retain the same quality as the original DVD, you should choose this mode.
  • Selected episodes
This mode is used for episodic DVDs such as TV Show episodes on DVDs. That type of DVD usually has several long titles and all of the titles have the same, or similar, playback times with each title being an episode. This copy mode allows you to select any episodes you want to keep, and skip any you don't want, and then copy only the episodes you want to a disc in one process. Compared to "Only the Main Movie" mode, this method is more convenient for you to burn multiple episodes of choice to a disc since the "Main Movie" mode will only copy ONE episode and finalize the disc. If you want ALL of the episodes, just use the ''Entire Disc'' mode.
