Dvd Clone 2 and Any dvd Running slow

I don’t know if anyone can help me but I’m going to ask anyway. I have been using anydvd and clonedvd2 for about 18 months and its worked well. I recently had to restore my computer and reinstalled the programs. The programs used to take about 30 minutes to copy the newest movie but now they take almost 1 hour 10 min. What could have happened to slow down the burning process so drastically? I’ve reinstalled all the drivers for the system, motherboard and updated the firmware. I even made sure that the IDE settings were set to DMA. I’m out of ideas. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Brad

Turn off everything that is not needed on your taskbar. Right click on the popcorn eating sheep and disable. It uses a lot of memory. Just a few things that might speed it up a little.

I did as you said and it still the same.

Do you mean replace the cable between the burner and motherboard or harddrive
