Additional Comments Overall very easy to use and straight forward.  Conversion time was fast. You end up downloading 2 applications, Xilisoft Blu Ray Ripper, and Xilisoft Creator. The first converts to vob files, and the second does the DVD video authoring: adding the chapters, menus, etc.  Software did bug out a few times, and I could not add files from hard drive - only optical drive.  Lack of file selection help, and result of playability of final disks are weakest points of the product. Only product including its own decyptor. The software was easy to use but weak point remains playability of disk.  Very simple and easy to use.  The software only converts to  NTSC format but played on all the players tested.  Software does not exist other than in english. Overall not bad expect not much help provided for selecting main movie files.  Software did bug out a few times.

*Playbility tested on: PS3 player, standard DVD player Philips DVD733, Samsung DVD-M405, LG DR4810, Panasonic DMR-EH60, Philips DVDR 70
All tests were burnt onto the same brand and model DVD: Sony DVD- R (media ID: SONY16D1)

**Time tests done with the same movie, default settings, and most similar settings available amoung the software tested. Movies converted from Hard drive (not optical drive) except Xilisoft.  Conversion time does not include burning.
Machine configuration:
Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Core Duo CPU T3700 2.00 GHz
4 Gb ram
64 bit

***Xilisoft test - Blu-ray movie was converted from optical drive (HL-DT-ST-BD-BE06LU10 YE03] as Xilisoft software would not load folder on hard drive.
