    ihave a 2200+ 1.8ghz proc 700+ ddr ram etc. using using dvd decryptor and dvd shrinker 3.2 it takes about one in a half hours to decry and about 45 to one hour to shrink and burn is that about right

    With your computer specs that is probably about right. You might try cutting off all un-needed processes as the CPU will use 100% of available computing power.
    Turn off internet cable modem amd w/ that off and if you have Norton turn off firewall and antivirus. Those programs are power hungry

    Your times are far too long.

    With a PIII-800 (256RAM)I do it in less than half your times.

    Check to ensure that DMA is enabled.

    I have an AMD xp2500 @ 1.88GHz and 512Mb ddr ram. I use DVD SHRINK and DVD Decrypter and all my backups take about 20mins for each process.
    I would say some settings are wrong either with your progys or your pc

    I have a p4 2.8g 512mb ram and it takes 30 mins to rip at 4x (7 - 8 gigs) usually 15 mins to process and 15 mins to burn at 4x.

    But its weird how it took 1 hour! to process Saving Private Ryan (movie alone 7gigs!) it came to 65% quality. Some times it can take up to an hour on a new movie backup thats slightly scratched.

    I always disconnect internet & firewall, are these figures ok?

    I got up to 7x rip on my p3 1gig, why is my 8x burner so slow at ripping?

    @Sir-Age, Private Ryan is nearly 3hours long, so imagine it's going to take a hit on the compression. I have this movie, have just never wanted to rip it for that reason.

    If a movie is scratched the drive is going to struggle a bit reading it. Maybe the copy that you're copying from is on cheapy media

    Why is it that DVD shrink from start to finish takes 2+ hours and DVD Xcopy take 30 minutes from start to finish?
