IDE Drivers not really up to speed on (what they do). in the device manager it shows the following
Primary IDE Channel
Secondary IDE Channel
SiS PCI IDE Controller
all of which have microsoft drivers
more clarification i was using shrink 3.2 then I tried CloneDVD2 trial version within last month. was using anydvd at same time.
When i am ripping or compressing the CPU usage is at 100% (shrink, clone, dvdxcopy). when i use decryptor it is at around 20%.
I have a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700 1.4GHz 256MB RAM.
myke I am debating on whether i need more ram. the thing is i have ripped many dvds with xcopy, and shrink and now they dont work. the only thing i have changed since then is my video card drivers and then i reverted to old one after problems and still have the same issue.
hope this helps.
