Reading DVD's faster

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this:

I have TDK burner and the speeds are 4x / 2.4 / 12 and it seems that while backing up anything the part that takes the longest is reading the dvd to the computer the burning only takes about 20 minutes. But i was wondering if i get a separate dvd player one that reads faster so that the copying process would be faster… Would that be any faster? Thanks…

I am pretty sure buying a new DVDROM won’t solve this problem. Sure your DVD can be read at 12X (or whatever the case may be), but the actual extraction rate of the DVD is different.

Think about how fast you can read this post and how long it would take you to write it down. Same difference.
