The tests are slower because I used an RW than they would be if I had used a 16x + or - R.
I just didn’t want to waste discs. I used the same +RW for all tests. I erased it in between with ImgBurn.

AnyDVD HD & CloneDVD2 with menu.
I had to set to DVD5 because at DVD 9 the size was slightly too large.
CloneDVD2 wouldn’t burn to a DVD5 disc that way.
Funny thing it says "target size sufficient ,transcoder disabled " both ways but now the size is small enough .

Ideal DVD Copy
One thing I didn’t like was I couldn’t use both drives .
I had to put that blank RW in the same drive that ripped the movie DVD.
There were a couple of button presses involved also .
So this software takes a little more hands on.

I wanted to test with DVDFab HD Decrypter but only my laptop had an expired trial version of
DVD Copy . It was slow so if that’s the best it can do it’s not even in the running.
I have XP Pro on another hard drive on my main computer but it had never had the trial of DVD Fab.
I tried to select HD Decrypter but It automatically chose DVD Copy. I will need to wait for the trial to expire to test it. I doubt it will be much different than DVDFab DVD Copy when done on the same computer but a different OS.
However DVDFab HD Decrypter does have the capability to use ImgBurn to automatically write to a DVD disc just like DVDFab DVD Copy.
In the long run only a 2:16 difference between the fastest & the slowest.
