When I used DVD Decrypter to copy a DVD image to my hard drive, it always copied it in less that 15 minutes using a max speed of 16,000 kbs. Since about 3 weeks ago, it will only copy a DVD image at 1.8 X and takes about 45 minutes. It does the same thing with DVD Shrink and Roxio. It’s a Philips DVD8701 that came with my Dell computer. What would cause this drive to slow down? Antivirus and spyware come up with nothing.
Here’s the kicker. I have another Dell computer on my home network that I rarely use. It’s burner is also not burning images to the hard drive at more that 1.8X. However, that computer also has a DVD-Rom drive that will burn images to the hard drive at max speed still. What would cause both of these dvd burners to slow down all of a sudden?
