Sorry to impose. Since November I’ve been backing up my DVDs using DVD X Copy Platinum. On Saturday I saw the light and changed to DVD shrink and DVD Decrypter. It works great. The thing is I should be able to write at 4X speed. DVD Decrypter, however, never writes above 1.9. My E drive is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-106D. My media is Grade A Media DVD-R 4X. The thing is I don’t think it’s a firmware issue and it’s not just cause I’m scared of it. Initially when I used DVD X Copy my writes speeds were 15 minutes then they dropped to around 29. I figured it was because I had installed more applications and the like. Recently I performed a system restore. My burning time was back to 15. Then I installed Exact Audio Copy and my write speeds fell. As I was using Platinum I only had access to burning time and not writing speed. Is it possible Exact Audio is at fault? Any ideas what I should do without removing it.
