Cool DVD Find

We occasionally use videos in school, and the kids have several movies that they really enjoy watching. Over and over and over. You know just what I mean, don’t you? I have favorites too. I could watch Moulin Rouge and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Fame and Footloose and Flashdance with the same passion they have for Spirit and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Since I do have small kids and I do find DVDs on the floor now and again, I’ve often considered DVD backup, but I didn’t have the equipment or knowledge to do it.

I know we’d be heartbroken to lose some of our favorites, and it would be nice to have copies of the ones we love the most. I’ve had to throw out VHS tapes that got the guts ripped out of them, and it was like throwing away a part of our family history. I still haven’t told TheClone that The Last Unicorn took it’s last journey a few months ago, ifykwim. She watched that movie DAILY for a couple of years as a small child. And then as a teen, she had me buy the book for her.

123 Copy DVD can solve that problem. The Gold Program allows you to

  • copy DVD to DVD
  • copy DVD to iPod and Zune
  • copyDVD to PSP
  • create cellphone ringtones
  • and

  • create DVDs from downloaded movies

The full program is just $49.99, less than the cost of 3 movies, and you can buy smaller programs to do just a couple of those things for even less. That’s like DVD insurance, but you only have to pay the premium one time. How cool is that? I guess it’s maybe time to look at replacing The Last Unicorn, huh? I do have another generation of little girls to love it, now don’t I?

PS: Do you have any idea how weird it feels to realize my children span a generation??? Really weird. Just sayin’
