I have discovered lately that my ripping speed has been greatly reduced down to about 2X on all discs. Normally I will get 10-16X ripping speed on my Lite-on 167T drive. To rule out the drive, I found I can only rip at 2x using my NEC and Sony burners (IDE and USB2) as well. I am using the latest DVDdecrypter and this version has yielded the max speeds earlier this week. I tried setting rip speed options to various settings but all drives seem locked at 2X. When I did a speed test in CDSpeed it would not go above 2X throughout the entire disc scan.
To my knowledge no additional software has been added. I have also tried re-installing DVDdecrypter. Does anybody have any ideas on what could be locking my drive speeds to 2X?
