Computer hardware requirements for running AnyDVD & CloneDVD2

I’m new to this forum. I have backed up my DVDs using AnyDVD & CloneDVD2 on a PIII, 1GHzt, 1024MB ram - the process is quite fast for this old machine. My friend’s backup experience has been quite slow - he uses a P4, 2.4GHzt, 256MB ram. Can he do any to accelerate the backup process?

Hey and welcome to CDF’s
There could be two things affecting his burn…

  1. His RAM; 256mb ram isnt really enough for DVD buring so a ram upgrade might be in order.
  2. DMA might not be enabled on the buner. To cheek this Right click on “My Computer” > Hardware > Device Manager > IDE/ATAPI Controlers. Once here right click on the “Secondary IDE Channal” then > Advance Setting. Once here does it say PIO or DMA? If it says PIO click the drop down box and tell it to use DMA.
