Piracy is not the only reason DVDs are copied: many people do it because they want to preserve the original discs. Magic DVD Copier can help you make copies of your movies quite easily. Actually, its straightforward interface allows you to do that just by inserting the original disc and pressing a button, and you don’t even have to change the default parameters.

Advanced users, however, can benefit from other features that can be adjusted from the Configuration window. In my opinion, automatically shrinking a DVD9 into 4.7 Gb is the handiest of these. Still, it can also split a dual-layer disc into two single-layer DVDs, with the option of keeping the DVD menu on both copies. Moreover, in terms of region codes and copy protection, the program can easily overcome such restrictions. If the source disc is scratched, Magic DVD Copier can simply ignore read errors and create a playable copy, but logically it can’t fix them so these errors may be perceived as bumps or missing sections.

When actually burning a disc, a user can set a given writing speed to avoid compatibility issues with old players. Likewise, it is possible to add a password to your copy. If you're using a rewritable disc, the program can detect it and automatically erase it before starting to burn the new contents. Luckily, the program also allows operations with disc images. In this respect, it supports copying a disc to an image or vice versa.

In general, Magic DVD Copier has the main advantage of being very easy to use. In addition, it can make very accurate copies of the original disc. However, it has some limitations. For instance, when you're shrinking a movie, getting rid of unnecessary trailers, chapter as well as subtitles and audio tracks in other languages is a common procedure. However, Magic DVD Copier wouldn't let you do so.
