Review: ZC DVD to iPhone Converter makes MP4 videos from uncopyrighted DVDs

Transfer your personal DVDs and uncopyrighted movies to MP4 for iPhone playback.

ZC DVD to iPhone works well for moving standard video DVDs, home movies, and non-copyrighted clips to your iPhone. With a fairly fast and effective conversion process, it allows you to generate highly-compressed video files that play on your iPhone's screen without eating up all of your hard drive space.

When you first start ZC DVD to iPhone Converter, you can immediately load a DVD from your drive (or from an ISO stored on your hard drive) and start working with it. Options include cropping, setting start and end times, selecting specific tracks from the DVD menu, or changing the output file. All of this works fairly well, though the menus are not always clearly labeled. There is a copyright protection in the recorder, a fairly standard feature for tools like this, so you can't record a DVD even if you own it. For non-copyrighted discs, however, we found the conversion speed fairly quick and the finished files to be compressed sufficiently to fit on an iPhone without taking up too much space.

If you have old family movies on DVD or non-copyrighted discs you want to transfer to your iPhone, ZC DVD to iPhone Converter provides enough functions and customization options to make the process fast and easy for most users. While not a perfect tool for transferring newer files or DVDs, it is a useful and generally quick solution for personal discs.
