First off this site is GREAT!!... Even though im a rookie i made my first backup and its working perfect thanks to this forum.. but the downside it took 9 hours to burn. I tried my second back up and it was also a 9 hour process.. im using DVD Shrink and a pioneer a07 burning at 4x DVD-R. I have 40 gig hardrive and it has enough room so i dont think thats the issue does anyone know how i can speed this process up? ive read it other people are making backups around 30 minutes. Appreciate any feedback. hopefully i learn as much as i can and repay the favor back soon.. thanx in advance.
