    Hi everyone.

    I recently bought the Pioneer 109. I had the 106 and it has been a worthy servant.

    Anyway, with the 109 I can rip an already burnt DVD (without CSS encryption) in 5 mins.

    Then with an original with CSS encryption it takes 14 mins to rip.

    Why does it go so slow?

    Is there anything I can do to increase its performance? I have already downloaded the latest firmware from the Pioneer site.

    Ohh and just so you know. This is exactly the same DVD and it needs no compression.

    Mr_Taz_UK - Well Mr all high and mighty!

    I figured it might effect it but I actually asked if there is anyway I can improve its performance. ie. Any settings etc?

    To explain the problem better. When I rip a burnt DVD with DVD Shrink it actually goes at 8x. But a CSS encrypted one it only goes at 2x. Why is this?

    Don't rip using DVD Shrink ... use DVD Decrypter
