I would like to share this: You Windows XP users can easily & fairly inexpensively "Enhance" your overall system performane & also your DVD ripping performance by moving your paging file to another hard drive. I added a 2nd hard drive to my system, making sure it has the same spindle speed & ATA 100 interface (UDMA 5)then moved my pagefile to that drive. Note: I used the same brand drive as well. Then set my pagefile on my "C" drive (boot drive) to "No pagefile".On the drive I moved to pagefile to, I set it to a minimum of 1&1/2 times my RAM, which in my case is 1536 megabytes, then set the maximum to 4096 megabytes, which is the MOST you can have. Keep in mind I did this after formatting the 2nd drive using NTFS file sytem. The ONLY thing on the 2nd drive is my pagefile. Now Windows can easily access this while performing multiple I/O requests. This thereby increases performance, especially while using a program like DVD Shrink, which needs that memory! Refer to Microsoft knowlege base articles: 307886, and 314482. I hope this helps someone. I KNOW it helped me!!! Big Time! This turned out to be an inexpensive way to increase my system memory from 1 Gig to 5 Gigs! The 2nd drive was only 55 bucks new! You can't buy 4 more gigs of RAM for even close to that!
