I own a Plextor PX-708A. I have been using it to copy some movies. However it is extremely slow. I have installed the latest firmware upgrade from Plextor with no improvement. I have checked the IDE controllers, and are set on "DMA, if available". I dowloaded the hacked firmware from the Dangerous Brothers but it did not worked. Can somebody help me to correct the problem? Can I use a cheap DVD ROM and them burning the movie with the Plextor to speed up the process? How would be the process then using DVD shrink 3.2? I am using DVD shrink 3.2. I have used with and without the "Deep analysis" and "error compensation" feature with I set it in maximum smoothness. I will greatly appreciate your help.
