I was using dvdfab to backup a dvd and it encountered a problem reading the disc. It asked if I wanted to enable playerpath and try again. I selected no. Now dvdfab extracts slow (only up to 2mb/s) and it seems to be taking all my computer resources (ie. I try to do anything else, computer runs EXTREMELY slow). What happened? How can I fix this? I tried restoring to three days before this happened, still doing the same. Thanks.

Why not try to enable pathplayer?

Check to see if you are in the PIO or DMA mode, you should be in the DMA mode, in settings under general there is a button to reset dma click that, also have path player set as always enabled

resetting dma worked, thanks
