Samsung SH-S182M/BEBN Problems

Been trying to copy with DVD Shrink and this burner is ripping at VERY SLOW Speeds compared to my NEC 3550A which most time rips at over 12,000KB while this one I barely get 1,500 / sec.

I have the IDE on DMA on primary and secondary… Any other suggestions

I think it will be a great drive just get the quirks out of it.

Thanks for recommendations!

You porbably don’t rip but Rip & transcode, therefore the slowdown.

OK so to fix this problem would be to ____________???

The Samsung is riplocked while that NEC model is not. However the difference in speeds shouldn’t be more than 8x slower. On a DL pressed disc, it takes around 15-20 minutes for a complete rip with the Samsung.

Anyway to turn the Riplock off?

Also what is the best firmware this one has SB01

The newest firmware’s SB02. I’m not sure if it’s any better, by the burns are very good. No modified firmware has been made yet to take off the riplock on this drive.
