Fengtao Software Inc was kind enough to provide us with their latest solution for copying DVD movies. DVDFab Platinum 3 should allow us to backup each movie of our entire DVD collection with just one click. Follow us through this review and find out more about the power of DVDFAB Platinum3.
DVDFab Platinum 3 backs up your DVDs, converts them into formats for your iPod, PSP etc, and also converts them into generic formats such as XviD and MPEG-4 – quickly and easily.
