Made the terrible mistake of buying on Spec from PC World without checking the reviews. Price looked okay and box showed great features.
The program loads up well in Win7 and has an easy to use interface.
Unfortunately it cannot do anything it says it can do - it cannot even update itself from the internet!
I bought it for simply batch converting my own home 720p movies to a format for use on an IPod - suffice to say it does not work on my PC which is less than 6 months old - HP Laptop i7... (read more)

a fix for you.
i bought this software based on the blurb on the box.
i installed it on the same day. i need to backup my DVD collection to HD.
of course the software did not work, however after reading this forum and getting downheartened by it, i downloaded the following two pieces of (free) software
mcldecrypt.exe just open it on your pc
machinist.dll open the x-oom programme files and copy to there.
now the SW works, but does run slow.
hope this helps

I installed the product which works very fast. Afterwards I was asked to download an update. Then I have used the software several times.
First I was disappointed that you cannot copy any protected DVD. But then I asked google for the dll which is obviously missing.
Now I can copy my movies to any devices. Great job. I like the feature of burning music CDs from youtube clips. I work with Windows 7. (read more)

First, I installed this software using my laptop's internal DVD drive. After installation my computer no longer acknowledges that the drive even exists. It's driver must have been dumped during the install process.
Being that my internal drive is now useless until I can figure out how to fix it, I connected my laptop to an external DVD drive to begin backing up my DVDs. Process seemed to be going fine as I inserted the DVD into the external DVD drive, loaded the X-oom Movie Clone... (read more)

Oh how I wished I'd checked some forums first.
Bought my 'Movie Clone 5' from PC World just before Christmas based on their sales rep's recomendation! Sure, easy to set up and easy to use - if it worked! All I can say is it definately does NOT do what it says on the box. It's not even allowing me to connect to their site to check for updates - I click ok to check as the pop up box asks then moments later, an error message saing cannot connect to site and the programme closes.

This program is truly dreadful. Setup was not easy - had to go online twice (as administrator of course) - the second time it downloaded the latest version of Clone 5. Ease of use would be good if it worked! Paid '39.95.
What a waste of money! (read more)

I purchased this program. It came with a link to update to be able to copy DVD movies for personal use. I've only been able to burn to DVD RW media only.
I've been sucessful in copying about 10 DVD Movies in the week I've had it. I have a 7 yr old, and we all know they don't take the best care of movies. Overall, for the $5.50 I spent for it on ebay, was well worth it. (read more)

I bought the software at Costco. I was excited about making back-ups of some of the kids movies (they get so scrtached!). I installed the software and I receive a popup saying that because of laws, it actually won't rip. They have my money and I feel I've got nothing!
Therefore I do not recommend X-oom Movie Clone and I hope Costco will give me my money back. (read more)

"Wow" is all I can say to all these negative comments!
I just purchased Movie Clone 4 and decided "what the heck, lets check out any reviews there may be".
So I did... I will NOT be opening this package and will be returning it today! Thank goodness I check things like this before I open them up!
I am actually completely shocked at how many of you are disappointed with the product and I will definitely take your word for it. I think I might go for the 1-2-3 Copy DVD 2008 or one of the Roxio... (read more)

I got a free copy through Computer Shopper - glad I didn't spend any money on the program because it's rubbish! Most of the background doesn't seem to load when I open the program, so I can't see any of the labels for the radio buttons! So when I left them on the defaults and went through to copy onto my hard disk, the program crashed and I haven't been able to copy a thing!!
The only thing I do have to say for them is the website that they cannot provide it with the software, but type it... (read more)

It makes for a good piece of rubbish for a program in my opinion, everything was a negative experience with this CD and DVD burning software, I would not recommend X-oom Movie Clone, I personally found it very difficult to use, and when I could figure things out I still wasn't happy with it.

Terrible. Avoid at all costs. The software doesn't do anything it says it can do. I've tried burning from DVD to DVD, which only turned out half burned DVDs and took forever. The other mode will rip the dvd to a file, but then not burn it. I have a 3 week old DVD writer, and all it turned out was coasters. (read more)

X-oom Movie Clone has turned out to be a complete waste of space for me. I cannot convert AVI to DVD as it promises. The programs simply crashes everytime I try. I cannot back up ANY of my DVD's as promised because it's 'Protected Content'. I have not gotten even ONE of the avalible options to work at all. This Software was a complete waste of money. I spent 50 dollars on software that does not do ANY of the things mentioned on the box. (read more)

I agree with the other users - I think X-oom Movie Clone is a waste of money. Tech support is terrible and according to the label it states that it will copy DVD movies but it will not. I think this is false advertising and I would not recommend this product to anyone. (read more)

Weak support and X-oom Movie Clone does not work for 90% of the things you buy this software for.Only copies 40%, then hangs. They when you try to update your get an Access denied error. Support takes two weeks and two reminders, then it is a generic "errors are caused by copy protection", that is poor service and was NOT the problem. (read more)

I thought the negative reviews about X-oom Movie Clone were because people were trying to clone copies burnt with black-listed burning programs. Now I know that this product is not fit for the purpose. (read more)

I found this software extremely frustrating. I can't comment on what it's like for copying disc to disc as I only used it to copy to the hard drive and then convert to xvid so that I could save onto my zen vision-m. At first look the controls seem straight forward but when i tried changing quality settings etc i ran into loads of problems. The help manual is useless and the online tutorial does not seem to exist. I managed to copy a few dvds but three of them had awful picture quality and i... (read more)

I have a Pentium 4, lots of GB space, and it will not even save to a HD file. X-oom Movie Clone goes through the motions of saving, you can see the preview playing, but when you try to open the file you saved it to...there's nothing there, it's empty! (read more)

X-oom Movie Clone is an excellent piece of software for backing up your original DVDs (to take on holidays or for storage purposes for example). Due to CSS anti-piracy restrictions, you must use an add on piece of software (mcldecrypt.exe) if you want to back up commercially available DVDs. Please note that to copy commercially available DVDs other than to back up a DVD you already own for your own use is an offence, but for backups using the add-on, it's second to none. (read more)

The X-oom Movie Clone CD & DVD burning software is the pits. It even sees DVD's I have recorded on my DVD recorder as "copyright protected" and refuses to touch the content. Add lousy unresponsive support, and you have nothing more than a complete waste of money. (read more)

There is a disclaimer inside the X-oom Movie Clone box which informs you that in order to comply with legislation they have prevented the product from backing up protected DVD's ie every DVD on the market. There is a patch available on the net which sorts this out however when you finally manage to burn a DVD it will not play on most DVD players including the PC on which it was created!! I have so far tried 12 players and only 2 out of these work. I am now starting the process of getting my... (read more)

X-oom Movie Clone doesn't work, save your money.
It will not copy css encrypted discs (copyrighted). There is a disclaimer inside the box to tell you this but you can't read it til you've opened the box which is normaly too late to return it. It also doesn't surport liteon drives .
I have emailed them 4 times about these problems with no reply to either problem, so theire backup is not very good either.
Be warned. (read more)
