    Do you regularly Defrag you HDD? I know after about 5-10 rips/burns my system slow down noticably. Usually after a defrag things go back to normal. Also, do you have enough room free on your HDD? Once those things start to fill up it can mean bad news if they get too full.

    matt_301 do you have 2 drives installed your DVD Burnner and DVD-ROM? if so open up your computer and make sure that the burrner is set to master and placed on the middle conector of the IDE cable and set the DVD-ROM as slave and place that at the end of the IDE cable conector. It solved others problems with slow DVD Shrink.

    I had the DVDs switched wrong in the uper reply. They have the DVD burrner set to the end of the IDE cable and the DVD-ROM reader set to the Middle Cable. There was like 4 people that was having that problem all switched there drives around and all had faster Shrinking time.

    have you checked your dma settings ? if you are not in dma mode you will have slow read write times . to check these settings right click on my computer and select manage and than select device manager , now expand the ide ata/atapi controllers , right click on either the primary ide channel or secondary and select properties and advanced settings . you will see dma settings here . if you find that your secondary ide channel is in pio mode uninstall the channel and reboot your computer . go back and make sure you now in dma mode . hope this helps
