Here is how the Movie Disc Copier component is described:
My Movies Disc Copier is a fully automated DVD or Blu-ray disc copier that allows you to automatically copy your movies directly to the Home Servers storage making it available to Media Centers, such as Microsoft Media Center, Media Portal, XBMC and many others.
Your movies can be copied to either VIDEO_TS formats for DVD’s, ISO format for DVD or Blu-ray, or a Media Center Extender compatible MPEG-2 format for DVD’s, or you can copy both to a VIDEO_TS format as well as an MPEG-2 format for DVD’s, allowing the full VIDEO_TS structure to be played on the main Media Center, and the MPEG-2 file on your Media Center Extender.
Disc copying has never been easier, simply insert a DVD or Blu-ray into an optical drive, and the copy process will start automatically, while you have a full detailed overview in your Windows Home Server console, after about 15 minutes for a DVD, or about 45 minutes for a Blu-ray, depending on the size of the disc, and the processing power of your Home Server, the disc will again be ejected from the drive.
Make sure that AnyDVD is installed and registered otherwise the movie ripping will not work.
Just pop the DVD or Blu-ray into the drive and sit back and wait. Information on the Movie title should appear (as it reads the disc label). Just be patient while the rip takes place.
You can change the movie data using the Collection Management program. For this review I didn’t connect to my client which is running the Collection Management software, but I can say that on my Media Center machine this runs beautifully.Learn more about Collection Management here
What can I say? I really love My Movies. It is very easy to install and configure – with lots of different options that should keep just about everyone happy!
Once it is all configured it is so simple to use – you just have to pop in a music CD or a movie DVD or Blu-ray, and My Movies does the rest.
I tried a number of different audio CDs and movies and each time My Movies worked flawlessly (and this a beta!).
