Thankyou for the welcome.
I am aware you can copy dvd9 to dvd5 but at the moment it takes about 30-35 minutes because it takes 20 minutes ripping temporary files to hard drive first.
With two drives it seems as though it should be possible to bypass the hard-drive and just copy from dvd to dvd and save those 20 minutes. I have achieved this with dvd5 to dvd5, but not dvd9 to dvd5 with editing or compression.
Any thoughts on this?
