1CLICK DVD COPY is very simple to use.  To copy a DVD, click the "START" button. 

You can configure your software by clicking on the "Options" button.  There are hints (popup captions) available for some options, which you will see when you hover the mouse over the check box or title. You will also find several other options in the popup menu, which you can access by clicking the right mouse button anywhere on the application. 

Note: You can open this user guide by clicking "?" (help) button or by clicking the F1 keyboard key.

The default settings will allow you to copy a "Movie Only" DVD (no extras for the best video quality) with English language audio. You can modify these default settings in the Options dialog.

OPTIONS: Default options (language and copy settings).
?:  User Guide.
--:  Minimize the application.
X: Close the application.

Popup Menu:
Click the right mouse on the main application window.

Shortcut Keys:
F1: Opens the User Guide
: Opens the Registration Window
F8: Opens the log file in notepad

Audio: Use this option to select one language as your preferred audio language. In cases where the language you've chosen is not available, it will copy using the default audio language on the DVD.

Source: Use this option to select the DVD reader or hard drive folder that contains the movie files. The software will attempt to choose your DVD reader at start up but if you have more than one, you may need to change this setting.

Destination: Use this option to select the DVD writer or hard drive folder that you will use to save the DVD movie. The software will attempt to choose your DVD writer at start up but if you have more than one, you may need to change this setting.

Working Folder: Use this option to select a folder where the software can write temporary files while copying.  This folder will need to be as large as 5 GB in most cases.  The standard Windows Application data folder will be selected by default.

The following six options are disabled by default, but can be enabled to meet your requirements:

Extras or Episodes: Enable this option to include "Extras" (directors cuts and special features) or copy an "Episode DVD" (a television program on DVD).  Episode DVDs are usually detected automatically by the software but in some cases you may need to enable this option manually.  When this option is disabled (recommended setting), you will get a "Movie Only" copy (no extras), which has the highest possible video quality. We recommend you disable this option and only enable it for episode DVDs.  This option is disabled by default.

All Languages: Enable this option to include all available audio languages on your copy.  This option will require considerably more space on the disc and will lower the quality of the video on some movies.  The option is disabled by default. 

DTS Audio: Enable this option to copy the "DTS" audio (a high definition audio format similar to Dolby Digital). This option will require considerably more space on the disc and will lower the quality of the video on some movies.  This option is disabled by default.

Include Subtitles: Enable this option to include Subtitles on your movie.  This option is disabled by default.

Movie Menus (discontinued function): Enable this option if you want a menu on a "Movie Only" ('Include Extras' disabled) copy. Keeping menus without Including Extras may cause some menu options to function incorrectly. We recommend you disable this feature to increase playback compatibility on your DVD player. This options is disabled by default.

Dual Layer: This option is disabled (unchecked) by default. When enabled, it permits you to copy and burn dual layer "DVD-9" DVDs directly to a dual layered media.  In cases where the original DVD exceeds the maximum size of a dual layer recordable disc (8.5GB), 1Click DVD Copy will compress the video to ensure the movie fits the disc. If you do not have dual layered recordable media, this option should be disabled.

Additional Options:

If you click the right mouse button anywhere on the application, an options menu will be displayed as shown below:

Refresh Source detection: Re-scans the Source DVD. Use this if you change DVDs and the information in the properties window has not refreshed to show the new source material.

Toggle Log Window visibility: Show or hide the log file window for the current copy session. The log file contains information about copy settings and DVD burning. NOTE: You can also open the entire log file (including previous copy sessions) using the F8 keyboard key. This will open the entire log file ("1click.log") in Windows Notepad. This is helpful if you want to quickly locate and save the log file to send to support in an email attachment. It is important that you include this log file with your email correspondence when requesting support.

Open Registration window: Launches the Registration window where you can enter your Registration ID or offline Activation Code.  You can also determine the software version number in the window title bar. NOTE: You can also use the F2 keyboard key to open the Registration window.

Open Working Folder: Opens the temporary folder used by the application.

Enable popup Hints: Show or hide the pop up hints that appear each time you hover over a control on the "Options" window.


Enable update notification: Launch an internet browser window to the website download page when a new version of the software becomes available for download. We strongly recommend you leave this option enabled to ensure you will be notified of new updates.

Enable media Stats collection - VSO: 1CLICK DVD COPY uses a writing engine (for burning DVDs) which is licensed from VSO Software. VSO uses an online reporting system to gather information about DVD writers and blank media to improve the writing engine. This information will also help you to choose the best media for your DVD writer. This feature is enabled by default and will send DVD media statistics via internet each time a DVD is burned. You can disable this feature by un-checking the check box.

Save "Episodes or Extras" option setting: This feature is disabled by default. Normally option settings are saved between copy sessions.  However, if you always do "Movie Only" copies and you only enable the "Episodes or Extras" option when copying an episode DVD, then you probably won't want to save this setting between copy sessions. However, if you always copy movies with extras, then you may wish to enable this setting to save the "Episodes or Extras" setting between sessions.


Prompt for another copy of the same Source: Enable this option if you want to receive a prompt after the DVD is burned to burn a second DVD of the same copied movie.

Allow DVD tray eject: This option is enabled by default. If you don't want the DVD reader/writer tray to eject the DVD when required, you must disable this option.

Delete Temporary Files: When enabled, this will ensure that all the temporary files (in the Working Folder) that are used for each copy session are deleted when they are no longer needed. You may want to disable this feature if you want to keep a copy of each movie you burn in your Working Folder.  The application will warn you if another movie with the same volume name already exists in the Working Folder.

Warn before erasing RW media: When enabled, you will get a message box telling you that the RW disc is not empty if it contains data from a previous copy, prior to being erased/formatted.


Set volume name: Use this option to manually enter the volume name of the DVD before it's burned.  By default, the program will use the volume name on the original DVD.  In some cases however, the volume name may be inadequate to properly identify the name of the movie. Once you click on this option, you'll see a text box labeled "Volume Name" where you can enter the name you prefer. Remember to press the "Enter" key when you have finished entering the volume name.

Preferred burn speed: Use this option to manually select the preferred maximum burn speed. In some cases, you may need to lower the write speed to ensure your DVD writer will successfully burn the DVD.

Set DVD-R write mode (experts only):  We recommend you leave the default setting "Automatic (burn engine decides - default)". Letting the burn engine decide the write mode allows the engine to select the best writing mode for the drive in most cases. The other writing mode options permit you to set your preferred DVD-R writing mode. The preferred mode will be respected only if the burner and media combination support that mode. The write mode selected by the write engine will be reported in the log file for each burn.


Turn off computer after burn: Enable or disable automatic shutdown of the computer after a successful burn.  This is useful if you wish to leave the computer unattended to burn a copy and you want the computer to shut down after the burn is completed.

Enable CPRx error correction: This option is enabled by default. CPRx error correction is essential to deal with DVDs which have bad sectors or bad structure. Many new DVD releases now require CPRx error correction to copy correctly.  We recommend you do not disable this feature unless you have a third party utility which is capable of doing it's own error correction in concert with 1CLICK DVD COPY.

Disable startup of media player on DVD: Enabling this option will help to prevent the automatic startup of some free DVD player programs (like "Interactive Media Player") when the DVD is inserted. Some of these programs may interfere with the proper reading of the DVD. This option is enabled by default.


Select Application Language: This option permits you to select the language that will be used on all windows of the application.

Save IFO files (for support): This option permits you to save the IFO (navigation) files on the original DVD to a compressed file (in the ZIP format) which can be sent to our support group to assist in troubleshooting authoring issues on some DVDs.

Burn DVD:

Once the copying (transcoding) is complete, a 'Burn DVD' dialog will pop up (as shown below).  If you use the same DVD device for reading and writing, you'll be asked to insert a DVD.  If you have a separate DVD reader and writer, the copy process can be accomplished in one step. In both cases, you have the opportunity to make changes to both the DVD volume name and the writing speed, prior to the burning taking place. There is a 20 second delay before the burning begins in which you can initiate any last minute changes.


The following are important for success:
  • If you are using a third party decrypting utility (such as "DVD43"), ensure you have the latest version.
  • If you experience burning problems, update your DVD writer firmware. Many DVD writers are not compatible with newer DVD media/formats until the firmware has been updated. You can get firmware updates here: http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Firmware/Home.aspx
  • Use high quality recordable DVD media. Media that costs half the price of good media can fail as often as 50% of the time. Always refer to the DVD writer manufacture for the list of recommended media for your DVD writer.
  • To ensure your DVD writer is able to read at maximum speed, please ensure that DVD writer does not use a read slowdown mechanism often referred to as "Quiet Drive", which is designed to reduce drive noise when playing a DVD movie. This mechanism will often reduce the read speed to as low as 1X speed.  Refer to your DVD reader/write documentation to determine how to disable this feature. Some manufactures have not provided software to disable this feature and in these cases you must download a modified (patched) firmware to disable this feature.
