1hr rip time for a single Bluray 50GB disc?

Guys, I have got the Samsung SH-B083A drive, which is a 8x bluray reader + dvd writer combo drive.

It took me an hour to rip a 50GB bluray disc to HDD, is this normal for 8x speed drives?

TIA

Hi,

50 GB in one hour is approx. 14 MB/sec average. I wouldn’t think there is something wrong, especially since the advertised 8x speed is only reached at the end of the disc.

oo ok, yeah the speed does go up near the edge of the disc (and the estimated finish time was suddenly great) then it slowed as it went the other way (dual layer?) talk about getting your hopes up.

Thanks mciahel

This seller on ebay lists only 4x for BD-ROM DL. Not sure if that’s accurate, as the manufacturer lists 8x-max for BD-ROM, but doesn’t specify single or double layer.

EDIT: 2601 claims that the drive has riplock - http://club.myce.com/f61/mediacodespeededit-tool-dvd-writers-114269/index48.html

So is 60 minutes rip time for 4x about average?
Samsung US"s site is dodgy that it doesn’t mention the read speed for BD-ROM DL … simply “BD-ROM 8x”

New version of the drive with “12x BD-ROM read” but take it with grain of salt.

Thanks for the link to MCSE thread

The iHES208 takes 31:47 to run a transfer rate test (TRT) on a 45.11 GB movie, using 8x speedpatched firmware. So my guess is that one hour would be 4x.

Although with my Pioneer BDR-205 and iHES208, it seems to take longer to rip with AnyDVD HD than it does to run a TRT, probably because extra processing is needed. I’ve never timed it though. Have you ripped more than one 50 GB disc?

Too bad it’s 8x for BD-ROM DL, which is something like 80% of Blu-ray movies. Maybe we’ll get an MCSE patch for 12x BD-ROM DL. :stuck_out_tongue:

click on technical specifications tab on here: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Samsung-Blu-Ray-Combo-Player-8x-BD-ROM-16x-DVD-ROM-48x-CD-ROM-Read-LightScribe-OEM

it shows it is only 4x for BDROM-DL discs. This is the reason why i didn’t buy the samsung drive. The LG 10x bluray reader rips BDROM-DL at 8x which is much more reasonable.

I’m holding out for a while as 12x drives for 4 manufacturers are coming out over the next few months, i’m hoping some may have 10x for BDROM-DL discs.
