    • I can help you out a bit for the WinX

      • Download and install WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.
      • After installation, run it.
      • When you run WinX DVD Ripper Platinum you will be prompted to register it. Register it using the License code: WINX-DVD-RIPPER-THANK-YOU-2011

  3. I downloaded and installed the BDlot DVD Clone Ultimate “Giveaway” and found that it wasn’t a giveaway at all. You are only allowed to clone 3 DVDs for free and then you’ll have to purchase the program if you want to clone some more DVDs.

    So in reality, it’s trialware and most certainly not a giveaway.

    I think you should remove it from your list of giveaways.

    • jbe,
      I will look into that, as I agree with you.

      One thing, did you get the download from here or, here ?

      I think I may have put up the wrong link.. (fixed) Just click the first one (above) then click on the green “Get it for free!” button.

      • I downloaded from the second link, the one ending in “/giveaway/”, by clicking on the Download button to the left of the words “NEW-UPGRD-PROMO”.

        Will try the new link later when I have the time.

        • Finally found some time to download and install from the new link provided (ending in “/special-offer/”) and am glad to say that this time around, the link worked fine.

          A License Code was provided when the download link was selected and this could be used to activate the software.

          Haven’t actually tried copying more than 3 DVDs though. But it does say, under About, that it’s a Licensed Copy.

          Thanks again.
