Instant CD/DVD from Pinnacle is an expensive, but only fair DVD and multimedia burning application. It arguably does not even fit this category of DVD copying software. The setup and installation are fast and easy and the help document useful. Although this product is good, it received a lower ranking because its capacity for producing back-up DVD movie copies is limited.

For a powerful, yet easy to use product that makes excellent copies at the click of a mouse, see our #1 suggestion, DVD Cloner .
 

The feature set of Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD is very limited in regard to DVDs. You can create a DVD that has already been decrypted and sized to fit on a DVD-R disc or CD if it's in VCD or SVCD format.

The interface is great and the Help is useful.

This product is very easy to install. No problems.

N/A. Since this application only burns your media to a blank disc, the quality of copy depends on your initial ripping.

Instant CD/DVD 8.0 is a good program if you want to burn your DVD movie and use other multimedia capabilities.
