I am currently using dvdshrink 3.2 and nero express to make dvds. That isnt my problem my problem is that the entire process takes me way longer than it should. My friend has almost an identical computer to mine and he can shrink in about 20 mins and burn in about 8, while it takes me atleast 50 mins for each of those stages. Am I doing something wrong or are there settings i can change? I dont have any of the quality settings checked in dvd shrink and my dvd drive is 16x and I'm using 8x dvds. I have a pentium 4 3.0 GHz, 160 gig HD its pretty full but I dont know if that would be the reason, 512 RAM and my dvd drive is LG DVD-RW 16x. If anyone has a solution or suggestion please post it. Thanks for any help.
