yeah i was just wondering, a buddy i work with said something about a firmware crack that would allow to read and decrypt faster.
see i use dvdshrink
my drive is a sony dru-800a (i believe it's a lite-on rebadged drive)
i've got a PIII 733mhz with 384 RAM (128+256)
and when i try to back-up a dvd it takes like close to 100 minutes
(if it's a 6.5Gb dvd for example)
now i know my pc is not the as fast as some others are, but it seems like it's taking an awful long time to read and decrypt the movie before it burns it, i've searched a lilttle bit on the web not finding anything besides an official firmware update from sony (which i'm sure won't do me any good) and i've always found what i was looking for in the cdfreaks forums so i thought i'd join and ask around if someone knew something about that in, if not, well... euh... i... hmmmppff.. please help me! :sad:
