Thanks for sticking with me on this.
You state that riplocked software will not help.
My understanding is (I might be wrong) that purchased DVDs are DL.
These DVDs rip very quick on my current setup. (*12 and higher)
Do I understand that you are saying; using riplocked software on the NEC to rip DL will not help i.e. no increase in rip speed?
If this is the case - I can only form the view that; Firmware is not available to enable my NEC to rip at the same speed as my Liteon - namely - nothing can be done to increase the ripping speed of the NEC.
Would you agree?
Further - any advice on the most compatible brand of DVD Media for the NEC?
Thank you again
