[QUOTE=StormJumper;2212085]On the title bar of DVDFab you will see a check mark click on that and the common settings page will open, then on the left side you will see the different settings pages click on General and at the bottom of that settings page click on “RESET DMA” then try again
also make sure the DVDs that you are trying to backup are clean no fingerprints [/QUOTE]
yet another reason why i should not stay away from this site for too long.
just encountered the same slowness issue, but it started happening right after i upgraded to the latest version.
i have a full version purchased.
i followed the steps as outlined by StormJumper and it worked, able to backup no issues.
