    I have been using DVD Decrypter & CloneDVD for awhile now. DVD decrypter still appears to be working fine for me. It takes approximately 15 minutes to run through a movie. Where I'm running into problems is with CloneDVD. It would normally take a short period of time to burn a movie to disc. It is now taking over a 24 hours period to happen. I have not let it run all the way through yet. I have let it run for an hour or two to see if the time remaining would change drastically. I tried using dvd shrink to see if it was a problem with clonedvd. I'm having the same results with that. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Hi nivek41. :)

    Could you give us some details about your system?
    Have you made changes to it recently (hardware, software, updates,...)?
    When did you last defragment your hard-drive?

    I have never refragged the hard drive. The PC is approximately 3 months old. It's a Intel Celeron 2.8 ghz, 512 DDR Ram, 80 gig hard drive. I have not done any major updated or upgrades to it. What else do you need to know?

    Well, first I'd suggest you defrag your hard-drive.
    We'll take it from there. ;)

    I will try that when I get home tonight. I know that it is always good to do anyway. How do you think that this will help with the problem however?

    It could be that your hard-drive is so fragmented that it considerably lengthens the time it takes DVD Shrink and CloneDVD to access and write the data.
    Only a guess though. ;)

    I defragged the hard drive last night. I also ran a disk checkup and repaired any sectors that might have been bad. I'm now up and running smooth. Thanks for all of your help.

    I found that works wonders to defrag often, also if possible add another hard drive ;>)
