    Hi,

    Ive been using DVDshrink for over a year now without any problem. Just recently though, for some reason unknown to myself, dvdshrink has start to read at a slower rate (currently reads at 2200 KB/S, usually used to read at 3500-3600 KB/S). Ive had a look through all the options on dvdshrink, but i cant seem to find anything that allows me to alter the read rate. What could be causing dvdshrink to read at a slower rate?

    Id be grateful for any advice on this problem.

    Note: i only started to experirence this problem after i used dvddecrypter the first time to back-up a movie (the forgotten), could this have altered the read rate of dvdshrink?

    I doubt it. Do you have any extra background programs running that you didn't before? Have you checked for viruses? Sometimes a fragmented hard drive will act like that too.

    I dont run any other programs when dvdshrink is running, i might check for viruses, but ive got a feeling that is not the problem.

    I might sound like a bit of a novice here, but what do you mean exactly when you say de-fragment the harddrive? what do i need to do?

    if you're using Windows xp --> Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disc Defragmenter. Other OS's, probably something similar.
