I am using RipIt4me with DVD Decrypter, Fix VTS, and DVD Shrink. No complaints - usually only takes about 20-25 minutes from RipIt to DVD Shirnk. That's where things get slow. It usually takes about 2-3 hours to compress and burn a DVD using DVD Shrink. That has made me get in the habit of ripping the DVD's to my hard drive first, then a few days later I'll come back to burn the VOB files on my hard drive onto a DVD using DVD Shrink. Is there something I can do to play with settings somewhere to speed up the burn process? New software, do things in a different order, or is it just my PC that's crap? PC Specs (pretty bare bones entry level PC with no mods): 1.6ghz Celeron Processer 512mb memory 80 gb hard drive 16x Sony DL DVD Burner (only mod to my PC) I can't complain about performance on my PC otherwise. It still has pretty fast response time for all other apps (ie. load time, no lag, etc.) Any help is much appreciated. THX!!!
