I have been using DVD Shrink for about a month now I have backed up about half of my purchased DVD's (maybe 50). After about 2 weeks I started to have the weirdest problem that I just can't figure out, it's driving me mad.
DVDShrink used to backup DVDs at 7,000 - 8,500 kb/sec and life was good. One day, between DVDs mind you, it decided never again to rip above 2,000kbps, usually averaging about 1,600. This is driving me absolutely nuts, since I used to backup whole DVDs in 15 mintues, now it takes 2 hours. This is what I have tried so far:
-empty recycle bin / Norton protected files
-defragment the HD
-uninstall DVD Shrink 3.2 and install 3.1
-uninstalled both, removed all entries in the registry, then reinstalled
-removed all programs from the auto-startup with windows then ran DVDShrink from a cold boot
-also, I tried to recopy some of the movies I did initially at 8mbs: still went at 1/4 the speed, so I'm not dealing with damaged DVDs.
It's not the hardware, because I have two DVD drives, and both are the same slow speed. I installed CloneDVD, and it works nice, but it goes at the same slow speed as DVDShrink, and I don't really like it. I know it has to be something with the program that made the speed decrease so drastically after 2 weeks of smooth decrypting. What could I possibly be missing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
