Slow Reading when backing up all movies now

Hey everyone. Everytime I backup a movie now using 1ClickDVDCopyPro, it takes a good 60 minutes just to read it before it begins to burn to disk. Here’s the funny part. The DVD drives are less than 3 months old. And for the 1st month, it would read the dvd’s in about 15 minutes. Now it takes 60 minutes! I haven’t changed anything so I don’t know why it would all of the sudden slow down to a crawl. ??? I don’t know what to do. My specs are pretty decent :

X2 4200 @ 2.2
Abit AV8 mobo
2X512MB dual channel Kingston RAM
Asus CB-5216A cd rw/dvd combo drive
Sony DVD RW AW-Q170A drive

Antec 430W TruPower
X800XL AGP vid card

Any help or suggestions are appreciated. On a side note, both drives are equally slow now and they used to be blazing fast. I’ve updated the driver on the asus but it still runs as slow as dog poo :confused:

Thanks to alan1476 for showing this to me. This is a little script tool to reset your DMA on all of your drives if you’re ever in doubt. I think it is a lot easier than doing it manually plus for those that are not too familiar with doing this.

Ok all you do is download this to your desktop then when done double click it click OK and it’ll do it’s magic, after that you must reboot your PC for the settings to take effect.

I nor others have had any issues from using this but need to put this small disclaimer up for legal reasons too.

You can use the following VBS script to reset your DMA mode in windows without having to go through the guides.

[B]Be warned that this COULD damage your computer and therefore you use it at your own risk.[/B]

[B][U]DMA Reset Tool[/U][/B]

Instructions:
Despite any warnings click on the [Open] or [Execute] buttons as required to execute the file resetdma.vbs.
If the program found any ATA channel to reset, reboot your computer and test all drives.

If the problem is still not solved, set the offending channel to PIO manually, reboot your computer, set the channel back to DMA, and reboot again."
So use with caution & again I say it’s safer to do this manually via Device Manager. If you’re using Vista then it doesn’t work at all.

Again thanks to alan1476 for having it for me to find and pass around.

Here’s my last burn, the read part took forever!
