I use DVD Shrink quite a bit and usually always rip with DVDDecrypt and then use DVDShrink to complete the compression and burn either in Nero or use DVDShrink. The question I have is that when I use an older version of DVDShrink it usually takes about 1 1/2 hours on my Pentium lll 1 ghz system (I have fast ATA133 Hard Drives) to do a analysis on the file. Then it takes about another 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to back it up. I find the newer 3.2 version of DVDShrink to be much slower than the previous versions. It normally takes around 5 1/2 hours for the process. Can anybody give me an ideas as to what to expect if I upgrade from my Pentium lll 1 ghz to a Pentium lV 3 ghz system. I am talking about using the Northwood Core with 800 FSB, not the slower Prescott. I have a MSI Neo2 motherboard in my closet for over a year now but the Pentium 4's are not coming down at all like I thought they would. The 2.4 to 2.6 ghz Pentium lV cpu's with the 800 FSB's are still in the area of $150. But I know they will overclock easily to over 3 ghz. Please don't reply about overclocking, I have done it for 10 years and never ever had a cpu failure because I carefully monitor my systems and provide more than adequate cooling. For those who aren't aware, all newer Pentiums within the last couple years have built in thermal protection to protect the core also and they will literally automatically slow down before any core damage could occur. I can guarantee anyone who has ever lost a cpu to overclocking has done something radically wrong. Almost all cpu's can easily tolerate a 20-25% overclock if the multiplier is within working characteristics of the motherboard. Remember, cpu's work in factories and enviroments all the time where the ambient temperature around them is 100 deg or over, your house is like 75 deg. Sorry to ramble on here but some people just get really upset about overclocking but it is no big deal if you know how to do it with a mb that is applicable. By the way, the Pentium 2.4 GHZ really is capable of supporting dual channel, and of course from there up. Any replies about speed of ripping and compression and analysis of their P4 systems sure is welcome. - - Also I have Nero Express and Express 2 yet for some reason I get a message they don't provide support for ISO burning. Any comment on that also. I purchased the DVD plug in when I bought Nero.
