Hello, I'm currently in the process of burning my first DVD. I have downloaded DVD Shrink v188.8.131.52, DVDFab Decrypter, and the latest ImgBurn. I did not know how to use any of the software, so I searched through the guides and found this Guide . I am currently in the process of doing the DVD Shrink step. However, I have noticed that throughout the entire process, the pictures show DVDFab Decrypter ripping at 8.76 MB/s and finishing an entire movie in 17 minutes. My computer ran the process at 2.2 MB/s and took 57 minutes to complete. The same slow down is occurring for the DVD Shrink process as well. My question is, how can I speed up these processes. I do not know all the specifics about the hardware in my computer, nor do I know how to discover what they are. If anyone can help out, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks much!
