Plextor has this nice function called SpeedRead which you can enable from PlexTools or DVD Decrypter. I find that when I enable it, it will rip a DVD in under 8 minutes versus the 30+ minutes it usually takes. However, I am always afraid to use this feature because it may cause read errors or freezing in the movies. It's the same reason I only burn discs at 4X when I can burn them at 8X or higher - short cuts might turn out to be more time-consuming later when you have to redo everything.
Okay, so my question is, does anyone rip with Decrypter with SpeedRead enabled, and if so, do you ever encounter errors or problems with freeze-ups? Thanks.
