Roxio is a company with a considerable reputation when it comes to ripping video and music CDs and DVDs. Roxio Copy and Convert 3 is a perfect example of a software doing exactly what it’s supposed to do. If you’re looking to convert, rip, or backup your digital media, using Copy and Convert 3 lets you enjoy your digital life your way.

Copy and Convert 3, another software in a long line of successful Roxio tools for enhancing your digital experience, allows you to convert your music and video files to most any widely used media format. It also has features that let you create disc indexes for easy access to the disc’s content, and lets you make professional-looking labels for your CD or DVDs. You can also convert movies to mobile phone ready 3GP if you want to take your movies with you on your phone.

Supported video input formats include MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264-AVC, 3GP, TS, DVR-MS, TiVo, MOV, DVD-Video, WMV, DivX and HD video. Copy and Convert’s intuitive interface then allows you to convert your video to most any video output format including DivX, MPEG-2, WMV, MPEG-4, H.264, MP4, DVD-Video and includes options for TiVo, HD Windows Media, iPod, PSP and Windows Media Devices like Zen and Archos. Although it’s not the most comprehensive selection, it does cover the majority of video formats you’ll likely want to convert to.

Copy and Convert’s audio interface is one of the few products that truly emphasizes its audio conversion capabilities. You can batch import and convert entire CDs or extract your songs directly from your iPod. The software even has its own burning engine, which allows you to burn your CDs and DVDs directly from the program. Supported source audio formats include popular formats like MP3, WMA, AAC, M4A (iTunes), and OGG Vorbis. Copy and Convert also allows for parallel ripping, i.e. ripping music from multiple drives simultaneously. Another useful feature alows you to automatically rename files and move them into folders according to title, artist and other tag information.

Additional features include the ability to create DVD labels and menus, merge multiple videos into one file and extract audio streams from imported video. One of the most helpful features Roxio Copy and Convert includes is the thumbnail. This is expecially helpful when ripping a DVD directly from your drive. No more guessing if you’ve uploaded the wrong file. I found Copy and Cover slow to install and a lot of memory processing took place when converting larger video files. One other lacking features is the inability to encode to MOV (QuickTime) format.

Beyond these few troubles, which are tiny in the scope of things, Copy and Convert 3 is another winning conversion program from Roxio. And at $49.99, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have this tool in your arsenal of Digital Media software. Copy and Convert 3 is available for both Macs and Windows PCs now.
