The Difference Of DVD Copying, Ripping, Burning and Cloning

The multiple terms used to describe the common task of copying or extracting data from a DVD may seem confusing. This is because the terminology surrounding the making of a DVD copy may appear at first glance to be interchangeable. Copying, ripping, burning or cloning what is the difference? Actually, each of these terms has a nuanced meaning unique to a specific set of actions. 



The Difference Of DVD Copying, Ripping, Burning and Cloning 

DVD Copying 

DVD copy software allows the copying of an unencrypted DVD. Copying a DVD is often a two-step process, unless you have a DVD burner. First, the data is moved onto a hard disk from the DVD, and then it is recorded onto a blank or rewriteable DVD. Copy DVD refers to the process of duplicating content that resides on a hard disk and transferring that to another hard disk. In either case, making a DVD copy from an encrypted DVD requires bypassing the security restraints that the manufacturer may have placed on it. 

DVD Ripping 

Ripping a DVD refers to extracting content from a media-storage device that can be detached from a computer. This could be a CD, DVD or a USB drive. When someone rips a DVD, the resulting copy of the content will consist of unformatted files. Also referred to as digital audio extraction, the ripped DVD will first have to be reformatted in order for it to be viewable on a computer or other media. 

DVD Burning 

The act of making a DVD copy is burning a DVD. The term DVD is an acronym that stands for Digital Video Disc. The making of a DVD copy requires laser technology. The intense beams of light emitted by some lasers are powerful enough to burn holes in objects and can even damage a person's eyesight. Lasers produce heat through focused light. Burning a DVD simply means recording content on it with a laser beam. A burned DVD copy will have a unique spiral track embedded, or burned, onto the DVD. When a DVD is burned, the heat produced by a laser optically records data on the DVD copy through this laser beam. This beam changes the material nature of a dye used to specially coat the disc. 

DVD Cloning 

The increasing need is a good way to weigh out the pros and the cons of DVD to DVD clone. Cloning DVD free to DVD is far and away trend-driven. Firstly, DVD disc, in itself, is a rock-like but fragile object. It can be unreadable due to both inborn bad sector and physical damage or data loss caused by carelessness, overlong or improper storage, etc. Secondly, the content of DVD cannot be copied directly so that you have no way to share the interesting DVD video with your friends, and you have to return the overdue but unfinished DVD for study or entertainment to the owner of the DVD who probably is your boss, teacher or coworker.

Whether you are copying, ripping, burning or cloning, remember that decrypting security-protected DVDs often opens the door to the possibility of copyright infringement.
