ive had dvd shrink and nero for about a month. when i first used these programs, i could encode a dvd in 20 minutes and burn it using nero in 5 minutes. now it takes 1hr20minutes to encode and 1 hour to burn. i have checked my drives and they are all in dma mode, not pio mode. also, most of the movies have atleast 1 if not more skipping problems involved.
