I am currently using DVD decryptor to rip my dvds. It is taking an obsurd amount of time. The actual read time averages about .6x. Im pretty sure I should atleast be breaking 2x. I have read about others having great success with their usb cases so Im not sure that is the problem. All of the dvd’s I have tried have taken a good 2-3 hours which is longer than the movie itself. I am using a NEC 3500 drive in an external case with a usb connection. What am I doing wrong? I also tried dvd shrink which took about 2 hours per dvd which also seems long. A friend of mine rips in about 30 mins with a POS computer and an older NEC drive. I have read the guides with no luck. Anything would help. If more info is needed just let me know.
