I was posting in the CloneDVD forum, and now I’m posting here.
So my rips on my Plextor PX716SA drive, using AnyDVD and DVDDecrypter were almost always about 15 minutes, and this using AnyDVD’s drive default speed.
However, when I was using AnyDVD with CloneDVD, the rips were about 50 minutes.
I followed a suggestion here and changed the drive speed to “fast & noisy”, and the rip started out fast, and then, after about 2 or 3 minutes, slowed WAY down, to the point that the rip will end up taking, once again, about 50 minutes.
Does anyone know what’s going on in a case like this? Is AnyDVD slowed down the drive? Is the Plextor slowing ITSELF down? Has an error been detected?
I’m really curious about the big difference in behavior between CloneDVD with AnyDVD and DVDDecrypter with CloneDVD. Any experts or the software author out there?
