How to copy DVD to DVD R/RW?

Apollo DVD Copy is an universal software for backing up your home made or personal DVD collections. These working copies allow you to play your DVDs on home and computer DVD players every day without the inevitable risk of getting your originals scratched or damaged.

What you need

  • 700 MHz CPU or above (Intel P4 is strongly recommended).
  • DVD-writer drives.
  • 4.7 GB or more disk space.

  • Ensure the DVD you wish to copy is clean (no finger prints) and not scratched.
  • Use high quality recordable DVD disc like Verbatim, CMC, Ritek, Sony, Fuji, etc. Avoid using cheap discs. Always refer to the DVD writer manufacturer for the list of recommended discs for your DVD-writer drive.
