Q: Is copying a DVD legal?
A: You must check your local laws before making a backup copy. Different countries have different laws pertaining to this. We are in no way responsible for your use of DVD Wizard pro. By ordering DVD Wizard Pro you agree not to break any law pertaining to DVD copying.
 

Q: Will DVD Wizard Pro work on encrypted DVDs?
A: Yes. Nearly all DVDs are encrypted with CSS (Content Scrambling System) and your DVD will have locked sectors denying you access unless it goes through an authentication process. DVD Wizard Pro works around this and unlocks and authenticates your DVD.
 

Q: Do you offer a money back guarantee?
A: We provide full support and can help with most technical issues. If you have met the minimum requirements to run DVD Wizard Pro but still can not copy a DVD because of hardware issues we will offer a refund.
 

Q: Can DVD copies be played on a standard DVD Player?
A: Most DVD copies can be played on a standard DVD Player, provided the DVD Player supports Video CD (VCD). Most DVD Players manufactured within the last two years, support the standard Video CD format. Refer to your DVD Player owners manual for more information.
 

Q: How many CD-R's are required to burn one DVD and how long will it take?
A: That depends upon the length of the DVD video, and whether or not you plan to play the CD in a conventional DVD Player using Video CD technology. If you want to store the movie in a compressed MPEG or DIVX format and replay the movie on your computer, or computer to the TV, then one CD can be sufficient with specific compression technologies. But if you want to store the format in VCD and play it on your console DVD player, then two CD's will typically be required to hold a full feature length DVD (2 - 2 1/2 hours). You can store (depending on the CD-R) up to 80 minutes of video on one CD-R in VCD format.

The time required for decoding will vary depending upon the speed of your computer and the level of detail in the DVD. Your computer will be processing many gigabytes of data and when you consider the amount of data involved, the time required for the process is actually quite minimal. Faster computers can typically decode a 2 hour movie in less than four hours. Slower computers will take longer. However, the process does not require your constant attention as you can begin the process before you go to bed or while you're at work. For the average computer, running a Pentium III 850 MHZ with 128MB of Ram, you can expect the entire process to take between 4-6 hours for an average two hour movie.
 

Q: Will my CD retain the same quality and digital stereo that is on my DVD?
A: Actually, VCD quality is much better than VHS, but not quite as good as DVD. Some can tell the difference, while others can't. The audio portion is recorded in true digital stereo and you will retain the same aspect ratio of a DVD. Many of our customers maintain a library of DVD Videos on their computer hard drives as well. This allows them to make an exact copy of the original DVD, video, audio and all MENUS! So there is no difference between a DVD VOB file on your hard drive and the VOB file on a DVD. They are IDENTICAL in every way!
 

Q: Does the copy retain all of the bonus footage and menus?
A: That depends on whether you store the DVD to your hard drive or you store it to VCD or DivX format. If you store the DVD to your hard drive, you can retain all bonus footage and menus. However, neither VCD or DivX can retain the bonus footage or menus. You can, however, use our software to copy specific footage from a DVD, like movie trailers or interviews.
 

Q: What is VCD?
A: VCD stands for "Video Compact Disc". Basically, it's a CD that can hold 650 or 700mb of audio and video data. In short, this means it is similar to a DVD, in that it is digital and can contain video data. Even though a VCD's audio and video quality are not as good as a DVD, most people cannot tell the difference between a VHS and a VCD movie. Anyone else who does know the difference will say VCD is better than VHS. VCD can also be played on most console DVD players connected to your television.
 

Q: What is DivX?
A: DivX is a codename for the MPEG-4 compression technology developed by DivXNetworks, Inc. (aka Project Mayo). DivX is similar to VCD in it's video quality, but almost anyone will tell you it's not as good. This is basically because of the difference in resolution. All televisions display on a 640x480 resolution. Computer monitors are typically set to 800x600 and 1024x768. DivX cannot be played on standalone console DVD players. This is one of the strongest points against it. Most people prefer the option of sitting on their couch and watching movies on their television, as opposed to their computer screen. DivX is ideal for those who travel, or prefer the direct availability of DivX movies over the internet.

Q: What is a mod chip?
A: A mod chip is an electronic chip that is added to the PlayStation, PS One, PS2 or Xbox game console - modifying it to boot up all CDs. It allows you to play every import game and every CD-R backup.
 

Q: Why do I need a mod chip to play imports and backups?
A: During the Boot sequence the console checks the Boot Information on the Cd. This information is missing on Backups. Import Games show a foreign one. The mod chip injects the correct boot information.
 

Q: Are there any other solutions for playing my backups and imports?
A: Yes there are. EasyBuy2000 offers external Neo Keys and several other plug-n-play devices. No soldering required.
 

Q: Where can I get a great deal on a mod chip?
