Clonedvdmobile - TOO SLOW!

I just used this software to convert a training dvd (1.5 hours long) and it took about 6 hours!!..am I doing something wrong? I also noticed that there are two annoying black strips on each side of the video!..please help…
thank you.

Does your processor meet the requirements for the program?

absolutely pentium 4 2.0 ghz with 2 GB ram - that is enough right?
