WM Updated:

Pocket DVD Wizard

The Coding Workshop Limited had updated its Pocket DVD Wizard to version 5.33!

With Pocket DVD Wizard, you can convert your DVDs and video files so you can watch them any of the following devices:

    Palm OS device Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) Apple iPod Video & iPhone Microsoft Zune Blackberry devices Windows Mobile Pocket PC Portable Media Center Gizmondo Windows Smartphone Windows CE device Archos Media Player Cell/Mobile Phones Creative Zen Vision, Vision:W and Vision:M Epson P-2000 / P-4000 Disney MixMax & Nick Npower Fusion Kodak picture frames and more....

The new Pocket DVD Wizard v5 is even faster than before with superb high quality output, tried and tested support for more devices than ever and of course, the fantastic, easy to use Wizard interface. The price for the Pocket DVD Wizard has remained as low as ever - just $ 24.95 (no discount codes required!)

All the conversion and file handling is done using the speed and power of your main Windows PC giving both fantastic still frames and fast action video quality, while saving you time and money. The software is designed to be very easy to use and requires no additional 'playback' software to be purchased for your Pocket PC or other handheld device. The Pocket DVD Wizard software uses advanced compression techniques to fit a whole DVD on a memory card the size of a postage stamp. You can then play back the resulting movie file using the standard Windows Media Player already installed on your Pocket PC.

No more 'black bars'
The Pocket DVD Wizard gives you the choice when converting wide screen video. You can choose to retain the original format, and have 'black bars' on the top and bottom of the video output, or use 'pan and scan' to remove the bars and use the full screen area on your Pocket PC.

Target your memory card size
From 128mb through to 1Gb , you can select your target card size. The Pocket DVD Wizard is not restricted to fixed memory card sizes, you specify the memory card size you have (or how much space you want to use) and the software makes the adjustments needed to give you the best conversion possible, whilst targeting your specified output size.

Specify start and stop times
If you have a clip you want to convert, you can do just that. Specify the start and stop times and the Pocket DVD Wizard will create a video file from that part of your DVD or video file.

High quality conversion
The quality of the conversion is very high in all modes, but it can be set to three different levels, depending on how much time you have to convert the file.
You can also select a 'switch off pc' option, to turn the pc off when the conversion has finished.

The latest version of the Pocket DVD Wizard runs on any desktop or laptop pc capable of playing DVD videos. If you can put a DVD in your CD/DVD drive (it does not have to be a DVD writer) and Windows can play the DVD, the Pocket DVD Wizard should work perfectly for you.
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows NT / 2000 are all supported!

You can also convert MPEG, AVI and WMV files!

All the popular DVD editing functions, such as targeting specific output file sizes, start and stop 'crop' points and removal of the wide screen black bars are supported for video file conversions in the current version of the Pocket DVD Wizard.

Forget expensive, and bulky portable DVD players, if you already have a Pocket PC you can keep the kids (and the adults!) quiet for hours.


  • The Pocket DVD Wizard is very, very easy to use with its simple step by step interface!
  • You can fit multiple standard DVDs on just a single memory card.
  • Superior video quality with WMV, AVI and MP4 output now supported.
  • More input formats supported, if you have a file type not listed, give it a try anyway, it will probably work!
  • You only need one piece of software, the Pocket DVD Wizard supports multiple output devices.
  • No need to buy any additional playback software.?
  • Support for both included media players (eg Windows Media Player for Pocket PC) and external players (eg MMPlayer)
  • 'Black bars' on the top and bottom of the picture can be removed
  • You can record multiple episodes to separate files without additional user interaction (and its easy to do!).
  • You can specify start and stop points to record just part of the dvd.
  • You can enhance the video brightness for small device screens.
  • You can select high quality, balanced output or high speed - you make the choice.
  • You can select alternate languages and subtitles.
  • Landscape 'Full Screen' playback on all devices, including the Pocket PC!
  • Free trial version is available - try before you buy.

I've used a couple of this type of programs to convert some DVD movies to a format I can watch from my storage card, and have been pleased with the quality of the movies! This program sounds like it could very well be "the" program for just such task!!
