    I replaced my OEM CD-ROM with a cheap Sony CRX 300 DVD-ROM that rips twice as fast as my Pioneer A06.
    Just a thought.

    Pioneer is a nice DVD-120 DVD-ROM for less than $40.00. (NewEgg.com) You should get one because they are cheap, read a lot faster, and save your expensive burner from wear and tear. IMHO. :D
    With my Sony ROM and Pioneer A06 I can usually complete a copy in about 35 to 40 minutes or so. Rip time is about 20 minutes.
