I'm checking in here to see if I am being a bit of a doofus.
I recently built a htpc to rip my DVD collection to disk. I based the build I had on a spec. I found which included 6 x DVD RW. I currently have 4 - all LG drives with SATA II.
I posted a question in the hardware forum this morning, because I am getting a blue screen of death when attempting to rip multiple dvds at the same time.
it just occurred to me - should DVDfab support the ripping of multiple dvd sources at the same time? - i basically run 4 copies at the same type (cancelling the drive it is trying to read until it reaches the required one for the session).
i saw there was a batch mode, which rips back-to-back - and i'm using that as plan-b right now without issue - so far.
am i being a doofus or should i, in theory, be able to do the simultaneous rips?
It has been suggested that I should really be using a separate controller for the optical drives, which I totally understand, just trying to figure out why in the original articale from which I begun this build said it could be done, here's the original article;
if you are curious, this is the thread i posted - suspecting the issue was a hardware clash...
