Hi, a friend of mine just bought a 712A and he is complaining it takes an hour and 1\2 to rip a movie. He has tried unlocking the drive with the eject button and it spins up faster but then slows down again. I think he’s using DVD Shrink to rip and DVD X-Copy to burn. I notice the minimum requirements for the 712a to be 1.4GHz Pentium, he has an old machine with a 1GHz AMD Thunderbird and KT133 chipset, could this be the problem?
Thanks, (I’m not much help to him, I don’t have a DVD burner yet. I’m waiting for reviews on the 716A drive)
