I am currently running XP Pro, P4 2.5G with 1.5G RAM, an NEC OEM dvd drive and a Sony 500 burner. I use both DVDecrypter (newest version) and DVD Shrink (newest version) along with Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD. I have been using the same three programs for the past2 yrs with no problems. Last week, for some reason, when ripping Seinfeld, my rip times went from and average of 15-30 minutes to 2-3 hrs. My burn times also went from 15-30 minutes to 90-250 minutes. I have not made any changes to the settings and the only thing that I have downloaded is the newest version of DVDecrypter (last Friday). After this started I ran Defrag, spybot and an adware removal program as well as checking my background processes and CPU usage (was only 2-4%). Has anyone else had this problem after installing the new versions? If not, does anyone have any idea what could be causing it to do this? It is driving me INSANE!!
