what program are you using, do you have DMA enabled.
check the surface of the disc for any scuffs/scratches/dirt

Backing up a Commercial DVD->DVDR takes a long time, because the comercial DVD’s are larger than the capacity of a DVDR, so the Movie has to be compressed.

It usually takes 15-30 minutes to compress, and 10-20 (8x/4x) minutes to burn the DVD.

You may be able to lower quality settings, but I wouldn’t.

Just for clarification…is it taking you 40-50 minutes total, from rip to burn to final back-up…or is taking your 40-50 minutes to burn a disk?

from rip to burn

from rip to final copy

at less than an hour, I’d say your doing pretty good commercial dvd to a clean backup hoss…:slight_smile:
