[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-212. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I’m using imToo DVD Ripper Ultimate and am encoding DVDs to PS3 (MP4) format at 720p. Hardware is C2D E6600, 4GB RAM, Vista Ultimate32, SATA hard disks, Pioneer DVR-212 drive (purchased around July 2008, so probably not 1.24 firmware).
The ripping speed for DVDs is around 13-17fps, which means it takes nearly 4 hours to rip 1 DVD - is this about right? Would I see an increase in speed if I:
Upgrade firmware (which I plan to do tonight)?
Change the drive to something like a Samsung 203 or 223, which apparently is a faster reader?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
