    Mactheripper is good but not fast,on my g4 it takes 30min.
    for 4,7gb
    On pc are programs that copy a dvd in 15min.
    I hope there are faster programs for mac then mactheripper!!!

    I'm not too sure RED_BULL. I have a G4 also, and M.T.Ripper takes from 15-20 mins for me. There is one more you might wanna try. OSex - but I think OSex is what M.T.Ripper is based off of. (I'm not sure about that, might be wrong.)

    Hey red_bull, I forgot about another one to try: DVD Backup. All of the one's I've mentioned can be found @ www.macupdate.com

    I tried osex before but its a little slower than
    mactheripper.DVDbackup is the first ripper i had but thats the
    slowest.maybe it takes 30min. because i have a 933mhz
    g4.And sometimes i work on internet while copying,it can
    make the proces slower.
    THANKS ANYWAY

    yep. That sounds 'bout right now. See, I have 1.5 Ghz and I usually close all programs but iTunes. I'm sure that accounts for your extra 10 minutes. btw, let us know if you find something faster!

    haigar,

    What you're asking is against forum rules and if you do it again you'll be deactivated.

    The ripping speed depends mainly on the read speed of your drive and not on the ripper itself.

    You can always update the firmware of your drive to get a higher reading speed and therefore faster rippings (Pioneer cripples the read speed with their official firmware).

    The speed depends on the drive mostly and of course how fast your computer is. If the disc is scratched or has a lot of fingerprints it will take longer too.

    Can someone recommend a drive? I have a Pioneer and didn't know that it had it's own "Official Firmware" that crippled the speed. Any input is appreciated.

    You can download the latest unofficial firmware for your drive here

    http://www.macetvideo.com/flashpioneerosx/flashpioneerosx.html


    It is a French site but the only thing you need to do is scroll down until you see your drive and click on the 1.33 button to download the firmware.

    [bold]To install the firmware make sure no other application is running and there is not a disc in the drive.[/bold]

    Now just double-click on the PIONEER DVR-105 Updater and follow the instructions (say yes to change the kernel and the firmware). It should take a couple of minutes.

    Once that it is done reboot and your drive will be zone free, will burn 1x DVDs at 2X if you want and will read at 12x.


    You also need this application to change Apple DVDPlayer region settings as many times as you want.
