While running DVD Fab to back up to hard drive, I check Windows Task manager -> Performance. The CPU usage is very low. So I assume the limiting factor is the DVD drive’s ability to read fast enough. For example, Season 1, SG1 disk one I get a speed of around 7 M/sec and the total task time is about 22 minutes. I have about 700 disks I want to back up to a bank of hard drives and play them from there being indexed by CollectorZ movie database software.
What can I do to speed up the task? Do I need a better DVD drive, or is there a limit on the read speed from a store bought movie? Sure would be nice to speed this up.
