Temporary folder: store DVD movie temporary as a folder. If you don’t want to change it, just leave it by default.

Copy Method:

Normal: for Unencrypted and CSS Encrypted DVD. When Normal copy method is used, the program will focus on scanning the main movie title in a DVD. If there is bad cell in the main movie title, a prompt window will come up asking you to choose Enhanced copy method.

Enhanced: for Encrypted DVD that has bad sectors and requires more times to decrypt. When Enhanced copy method is used, the program will try to read out as much titles as it can be detected in a DVD, and it will then copy all detected titles. Particularly, the program is able to identify the main movie during the scanning process, and skip all bad cells during copying process.

It's recommended to use the Enhanced Copy Method to copy the most recent DVD movies like G.I. Joe, especially for Disney DVD movies.
