I just bought my first dvd burner and i'm having a little trouble with the software i'm using. The DVD burner i bought is a DVR-A08XL (16x max writing). Well i'm using DVDShrink to encode and DVD Decryptor to burn. DVDShrink is only transferring at about 2100 KB/s and it's taking about an hour to rip a dvd (too slow). DVD Decryptor is burning a DVD image in about 10 Mins now that i set up the DVD burner on its own IDE channel, but i would like to reconnect my CD burner back onto the IDE cable. My comp specs: P4 3.0 Ghz 1 Gb Ram PC 3200 Win XP Pro DVD Media: Memorex 8x DVD +R Can anybody let me know how to speed up the transfer rate on DVD Shrink? Solutions i have tried so far: 1) Setting up IDE to DMA mode on both primary and secondary 2) Placing the DVD burner on its own channel. The oucome of this is that DVDShrink is still transferring very slow but the DVD Decryptor is burning a DVD in about 10 mins From what i hear from many people is that it should only take about 30 mins to encode a DVD on DVD Shrink (mines taking a little over an hour). Please help and let me know of any suggestions.
