Thanks for your reply,
I normally just let Clone DVD do its thing,
However on the odd occasion where I just want to rip the whole DVD to the HDD before further work i.e. splitting or deciding whether to have just the movie or the full disc, I use AnyDvd for this.
I had noticed that AnyDvd took longer than Clone DVD, which got me thinking as to why. I always thought that Clone DVD was using AnyDvd in the background, but couldn’t work out why CloneDvd would be quicker getting to the point of getting the movie onto the HDD.
Anyway as you have said Clone DVD has its own ripping ability, so thanks for answering the question.
All the best,
