I have a Relisys (I think thats how you spell it) DVD drive and I am having trouble trying to get the ripping speed to go faster.
I got it to run under UDMA mode. But when I try ripping DVD's it only rips at around 2X. I know it needs some processing to take the encryption off of it but before I had DMA mode running the CPU usage was at 100% now it's only like 7% and the HD is hardly worked too but the DVD read speed when ripping is still stuck at 2X speed where the max speed of the drive is 16X. I know I wonâ€™t get 16X out of it but it would be nice if it ripped a litter faster. Any ideas?
Athlon XP 2100+ running at something like 1733MHz
80GB IBM HD 7200 rpm running in UDMA mode 5. A speed test said it can do around 40MB a second so that can't be the problem for it sticking around 2X DVD speed (around 2.7MB/s)
Relisys 16X DVD-ROM drive running in UDMA mode 4.
I know it isnt the CPU or HD thats limiting it now I have DMA mode on my DVD-ROM drive. The CPU averages at around 7 to 10% and the HD hardly makes a noise when writing.
Note: I built this system myself, I don't buy custom built machines from places like PC World and Time, Tiny etc.
