Installed this version and found that the ripping portion of a "copy movie" routine doubled in time. The "write to DVD" portion of the routine is unchanged. Tried it on Quantum of Solace and, as a regression check, on a Harry Potter (Chamber Secrets) disk.
No change in my PC configuration for at least 6 months, nor in DVDfab settings. Path Player is "As Needed" but, since I'm doing a straight copy (minus protections) there's no menu/warnings wizardry. And, yes, DMA is enabled, yada yada.
Yet 184.108.40.206. has a release note gushing "Improved DVD copying speed greatly." Both DVD's each took nearly 30 minutes to rip to HDD (versus 15 minutes or so in previous versions), and the write to DVD time was unchanged at 13-14 minutes of so. Verbatim 2.6x MIS quality stuff, dual layer, 100% copy, no change in media used for past 18 months.
Anyone else seen this behaviour?
Asus M2N-SLI, AMD 5000x2 BE, 2x1 gigs DDR2, PIO 107D and 112D on ATA UDMA, 320 SATA HD, 8600GT, very cool temps everywhere, XPsp3. NOT in a VM.
