    Im encoding a DVD(shrink 3.2 and Nero) and it is taking me 1:
    45 hours long, to encode. I know that is slow. Is this becasue
    of my CPU its and Atholn 1.67 Ghz/1.00 GB of Ram. Also, 1
    gig of Ram. I have gone onto message boards and read that
    you can make DVD drive faster my switching DMA Primwary to
    a PIO. However, I didnt notice any difference(do I have restart
    the compter Dont want to becaue I have 41 min left for now)
    and I switch secondary to also. Do, you know a faster way or
    easier way to encode to make go faster? When I open the the
    disk/DVD it takes 2mintues. Also, Im knew to PC. I have been
    using Apple for many years for my work and Im not sure what
    PIO and DMA is?

    Go back into Device Manager and change back to DMA if available--stands for Direct Memory Access and is quite a bit faster than Pio--then re-boot--If you have used Shrink before successfully, then try again--45 minutes is not too bad--especially if you have the quality enhancements checked--Also do NOT use your PC for anything else--make sure all background programs are OFF--let us know how you make out
