well i am not sure but i think this is the most appropriate thread ?
dvd ripping time?
i have 2 computers here in my putey room. i want to make back ups for my dvds so the kids dont trash the originals!
putey no.1 rips DVDs in at least half the time of putey no.2.
putey no.1 rips 99.9% of dvds in under 30mins, start to finish .ie i mean using dvd shrink, scan dvd =1-2 min , rip- decrypt and compress approx 15- 20 mins , burn dvd = 8mins
i would expect putey no.1 to be faster [upto 15%] but certainly not twice as fast! or more!
they are both p4s and are both running at 3.6ghz . [both overclocked]
putey no.1 is a nth wood core C series fsb at 800mhz= std= (200x 4 )
in current overclocked state it is running at 240mhz x 4 email@example.com this runs in DUAL Channel mode. 875 chipset does support dual channel. also runnign 1gb ocz ram 2x512mhz 6800ultra xp sp2
putey no.2 is a nth wood core B series fsb at 533mhz= std= [133x4]
in current overclocked state it is running at 171mhz x 4 firstname.lastname@example.org . this runs in single channel mode . 845 chipset doesnt support dual channel. 1gb corsair xl pro 2x512mb twinx 9800pro xp sp2 also runs a dvd reader on sam ide 2 channel. device 0 =ultra dma mode 4, device 1 = ultra dma mode 2
both compuers run 100% stable . i dont have n e stabilty probs, just a slow ripping time for putey no.2. the slow point seems to be the decrypt and encoding time. also runs a dvd reader on same ide2 channel. device 0 =ultra dma mode 4, device 1 = ultra dma mode 2
n e ways i am running the same version of nero 188.8.131.52 and dvd shrink on both and all the windows updates as far as i know are the same as well.
the only major difference i can think of is that the putey no.1 is running raid 0 [2x 80gb hdds seagate] and putey no.2 is only running a single drive 120gb wd.
the burners are also diff putey no.1 has a liteon 1633s with a dodgy version of firmware. BSOS modified.
putey no.2 has a pioneer 109 burner. firmware rev 1.58
the burners are rated at burning the same speed ! i am using dvd-R 8x ritek and verbatim dvds . they are both good although the verbatim ones are better!
i have checked all the IDE Settings and they are all running at ata100spec = ok
i found out a while ago that the versions of nero were slightly diff so i upgraded putey no.2 to the same as no.1 and that improved my burning times quite a bit, approx 30%. they were taking about 1.5 hrs but now they take around about 1hr.
i have not swapped over the burners although i think i will run a raid setup on putey no.2 to see if this is helping a lot! i just need to get another hdd!
i tried ripping with out the raid on no.1 putey and it didnt seem to make n e difference! still takes about the same time!
so iguess hte raid has ntohing to do with it!
i also looked up old stuff online about the diff between the cpus and the only thing that looks like it might be different is the motherboard chipset! 875 as compared to 845 !
so the big question is how long does it take u guys to rip a dvd from start to finish and what are the main things needed for fast ripping?
i am led to believe u need a grunty cpu and fast hard drive speed.
n e help would be greatly appreciated !
