What Does Magic DVD Copier Do?

Magic DVD Copier is a DVD copy software tool that copies DVDs to blank discs or a computer hard drive without any loss of digital quality. This software copies a DVD movie to blank DVD in 1:1 mode and compress a DVD9 movie to fit onto a 4.7 GB DVD. You can even split that same DVD9 movie into two 4.7 GB DVDs and you’ll never spot a single quality issue. Additionally, users may copy the main title or specified titles as they wish.
