16X DVD-ROM preforms very slow ripping?

    My EPO 16X DVD-ROM rips slowly at 2X. I purchased this drive in a hope to decrease my ripping time. Looking at CDSpeed200.com (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/go.php3?link=dvdresults.php3) list, none of the 16X DVD is THAT slow in its transfer rate, the slowest is around 11X.

    Any ideas in helping me resolve this issue?

    I have found the same thing on about 4 DVD-ROM drives I've tested. I have not found an older DVD-ROM to test with yet. The CDSpeed200 checks the data read speed which is different than ripping speed. Here is a link I here that explains why rip speed is so slow. http://cd-rw.org/news/archive/3537.cfm
