I use shrink to rip, and decrypter to burn. It takes about 25 minutes to rip/analyze a full length dvd. Ive read in these posts that some are ripping dvds in 6-8 minutes. Should my rip speed be quicker? Pc specs are: amd athlon xp 2800+ 512 RAM Windows Xp Tdk indivd internal multiformat 440n I close as many programs as possible before ripping. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
