The application works with the most popular CD and DVD types by using its “ISO Write” mode and it supports the latest writers, such as LiteOn, BenQ, NEC, Plextor and Sony. Another action your can perform with DVD Decrypter is erasing or formatting rewritable discs.
The developers of DVD Decrypter recommend using the application only for backing up DVDs. The software was not created to steal copyrighted material, but to backup DVDs that users own, legally.
The final version of DVD Decrypter, 188.8.131.52, was released in 2005 and the change log included various fixes and additions. For instance, support for setting the read speed on AOpen 1648 DVD-ROM drives was added, and the creation of an MDS file is only forced when ripping to a FAT32 drive rather than when also ripping a DL disc. Instead a warning was added to the “Create MDS File” option.
Regarding fixes, some errors that have been solved are dummy images mounted in Daemon Tools caused by non-standard UDF file system, “Layer information” being shown in ISO Read mode when there was an empty DL disc in the drive, and the start button still being enabled in File mode even when no files were found.
Although many other DVD backup applications have been released since DVD Decrypter has been discontinued (AnyDVD
or DVDFab Decrypter
), this application is still available for anyone looking for a reliable method of decrypting and copying DVDs to computer.
DVD Decrypter’s development was discontinued many years ago, but a mirror for the final release of DVD Decrypter is still available.
