I just bought a NEC 2500. Ripping a film to my hard drive takes 50 minutes. When I rip, my CPU usage is at 100%.
I have a MSI 6309 motherboard, P3 1 Ghz, 512 MB RAM, Seagate 7200 rpm HD. I use XP Pro and Elby’s Clone DVD. DMA is enabled.
My friend owns a 2.6 P4 and can rip the same file in less than 25 minutes.
Is it normal for my CPU to be at 100% while ripping?
Is there anything I can do to speed up the process?
