Xilisoft DVD Copy is a DVD duplication tool for Mac. It allows you to create copies of your DVD movies and burn them using the built-in DVD burner. There are two modes: full disc mode and main movie. The first mode will create a perfect copy of your movie, also known as a 1:1 copy. It will include all the titles, audio and subtitle tracks, and available angles. The main movie mode will attempt to detect the main movie title and include only that on the final burned disc. This means that all extras will be deleted. This mode is often used when you want to fit a DVD9 movie into a DVD5 disc, or simply when you don't want any extras on your discs.

With TV show DVDs, I found that you have to use the full disc mode, since Xilisoft DVD Copy will only include one episode in the final disc if you use the other mode.

I like that Xilisoft made this application light and simple for the Mac. What I don't like is that it still uses an installation wizard instead of the drag-and-drop installation method. Another thing that I noticed is that the dock icon and the application itself aren't very responsive and they don't look like native Mac apps.

All in all, this tool works fine, but it lacks the "Mac" feel. It is also very expensive, at $49.95.
