Just a question or two:
After copying a movie to my hd I don’t always burn it right away so when I load up dvdfab platinum again to burn, it always spends 15-20 minutes “copying” then it writes (another 30 minutes). If I don’t close the program after the initial copying I can “write” as many discs as I want without it “copying” each time. I hope this made sense.
Sure, it makes perfect sense.
Fab is configured to rip to the hdd first…as a temporary file anyway.
It’s not designed as an on-the-fly decrypter.
Just choose [B]Write Data[/B] from the left column under DVD to DVD and you can burn directly from the image on your hdd…
Another question: After reading some posts about the program slowing down over the last few months (I started using it August 2007) I agree that it has. I don’t understand much of this “computer talk” but I did check the DMA thing and that’s okay, and I checked the write settings: mine says “Packet Writing” should I change to “SAO Writing” and set a certain speed or just “fastest”.
There are 2 links in my sig that will provide guides, DMA reset files (in the event that the one in Fab doesn’t work) and a decent knowledge base. None of it’s really very technical. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
If you’re not having burning problems, either packet or SAO should work…both work fine for me.
Having said that, my preference is SAO.
We also recommend SAO for those having problems while writing to -R media.
Better to pick a specific burn speed.
A good rule of thumb for starters, 1/2 the max speed of your burner or 1/2 the max rated speed of your media…whichever is slower.
If you stick a blank in your burner and fire up nero cd-dvd speed (link in my sig), click on the info tab, it’ll display your burner, firmware and media code.
Then we can give you a more specific answer.
Hope this helps…
