Okay guys, this is one for the books. I bought a Pioneer blu-ray burner, model 209dbk, which was supposed to be very fast. Put in "mockingjay 2" and it said it would be 5 hrs. to complete. Yeah, right. Reading at like 1.9x. Well I went to the internet and saw all kinds of stuff about "riplock" but no solutions for this drive that worked. Using fab-dvd. In fact I bought the Pioneer because the LG blu-ray burner I had was making coasters. So I was so disappointed. So now I'm thinking about this riplock which I cannot fix and buy another burner, LG wh16ns40, and low and behold it does the exact same thing. Now I'm pissed. Meanwhile I had been burning these movie backups to my upstairs computer running Win 7, Lg wh14ns40 burner. Soooooooo.....I decided to buy another LG product, the wh16ns40, and all would be fine. Wrong. The unit also read/ripped whatever at 2.1x. Very slow. Finally, I move the Pioneer upstairs to the other computer and it performed flawless. What made the difference????
Upstairs is running Windows 7 ultimate
Downstairs is running Windows 10
MB's are basically the same (Gigabytes 970's). So I am sure that it is the operating system, at least at this point. But nowhere on the internet in researching this problem did I find the OS as a possible problem. Obviously I have to dig deeper to see if this is the culprit. But what else is there left?? Hardware (MB, cpu, memory) are the same. So now I will dig into Windows 10 for a solution. If you know of one please advise.
