Is this too slow? should i be using another program?

I’m burning with a Memorex external 16x -/+rw drive connected via USB to a sony laptop p4 2.6 with 512mem.

I use dvd decryptor and dvd shrink but it seems to take forever. is there another program that can analyze and encode faster? I’m not having problems with copy protection with these programs, most my dvds are older, but i just want to know if there is a better solution for the setup i have.

Uh a external, sorry dude but externals are not near as fast as internals. I know I had a Mad Dog external Drive; it was way to slow and took at least half a day to copy a dvd. I later bought a Mad Dog Internal drive. You’re out of luck sorry.
