I just joined this form last night, so tell me if this question has already been answerd. I have a Dell 3.2g with 512 DDR2, using a NEC 3500 burner with Liggy & Dee's ND-3500 LDV2 BETA 6 firmware. I am currently using Memorex DVD-R 8x media.
My first problem is that it takes about an hour to ripp a full length DVD using DVD Shrink. I have read that you need to enable DMA on the drive to make it run faster. When I go to do that the advanced TAB in the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers is not there. Is there any other way to enable DMA? And is there any thing else I can do to make ripping faster?
My second problem is that every single DVD I have burned (Nero 6.3) take 41 minutes. It does not matter what speed I choose. I can choose 2x, to 12x and it still takes 41 stinking minutes. I see everybody here burning so much quicker. I have not had any bad burns, so the quality is not a factor.
Thanks in advance for the help
And Sorry if these problems have been answered, I have searched, but with no luck.
