Hi all, I have a friend who I got into DVD burning. I’ve been able to help him with everything up to now and have a wide and deep IT knowledge (work in the field) with regard to hardware and database stuff, but even I am still learning from you guys in the DVD field.
I’m not able to help him with this issue: He has an NEC DV-5700A 3.07 reader as a slave on second chain, NEC ND-2500A as the burner as master of the second chain. No issues, no conflicts in device manager. The strange thing is that he used to be able to rip at 5000-6000 kbps, then suddenly, with nothing really changed, his ripping speed off either drive is now 600k-1000kps. I thought it could be a dirty disc but he’s tried multiple discs. Given that it used to work fine, happens with both drives and different discs it’s an odd case. It plays DVD’s fine, just rips at a horrible speed, almost like a rip-lock. He’s using stock firmwares for both drives.
