My problem is that my DVD drive operates at a disgustingly low speed. Takes about 40 mins to rip a movie, and also about that to write one to single-layer media. DMA is enabled, and I think most of the problem can be attributed to it being an internal drive in an external enclosure, connected with USB 2.0, to a USB 2.0 adapter (non-powered) in the slot in my laptop.
But really, is even 4x too much to ask from this setup?? Any help aside from “go buy a new computer” is greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly and here’s some of my specs
Compaq Presario 2190US
Pioneer 110D with latest firmware
Sony (TY) DVD+R is the media
700something MB ram
2.4 Ghz Celeron (
Thanks again fellas
