Hey all, I have been backing up some of my recent dvd's and have found it to be very time consuming and wanted to know if it should take more than 5.5 hours to rip one dvd (not burning it yet)? Here are my specs: Pacific digital 8x external Lite on dvdrw cd-r/rw LDW 851s Using USB 2.0 card Winxp 1 gig of memory @ 450 mhz. Can someone tell me the typical time it takes to backup a DVD such as the Soprano's? Just wanted to see if there aare any other ways to do this faster. THanks for all your help!
