CloneBuddy Description

CloneBuddy is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you make DVD copies of your favorite movies by copying them to your computer. The tool is part of the DVD-Ranger software package.

Straightforward layout

The design is simplistic and embeds all configuration settings into a single panel. There’s no support for a help manual but the configuration settings look easy to decode, so you can try setting them up on your own.

DVD copying options

You are given the possibility to select the source and opt for ripping data to HDD or creating an ISO image. Plus, you are given the freedom to provide the saving directory and filename.
Aside from the aforementioned options, CloneBuddy gives you the possibility to choose between several DVD readers in order to remove DVD encryption options. The utility is able to remove the region code without affecting the length or quality of the movie.
We have tested the program on Windows 8.1 Pro and noticed that it takes a long time to copy the DVD content to a folder on your computer and create ISO images. The utility eats up CPU and memory so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.
There’s no support for advanced features to help you convert DVDs to MP4 or MKV file format, select the chapters, include/omit subtitles, and adjust the frame rate, just to name a few suggestions.

Final verdict

To sum things up, CloneBuddy delivers nothing more than a simple software solution for helping you make backup copies of your DVDs, and is suitable especially for users who are looking for a basic DVD ripper without complex configuration settings. However, it still needs functionality improvements because the copying process takes a lot of time.
