Whats a IDE lead? I've tried other cables, no dice.
Anyways, I tried the drive in another computer and setup it up on secondary channel as master, and still the same thing. The highest the transfer rate got using DVD Decrypter was 4.3x then it started going back down, and level out at 3.7x. Took a total of 29 minutes. Just like the others, they all started around 36 minutes and the total time after complete rip was around 29 - 30 minutes. I checked and I'm using Ultra DMA 2 for the Secondary channel, and Ultra DMA 4 for the Primary channel. Are DVD/CD drives limited to only Ultra 2, or can they run at Ultra 4, and if so, how do I change it?
I'm not sure what speeds I should be expecting, but I thought using the modified firmware would make the rip faster then the stock firmware since it turn off riplock, and I'm sorry, I havn't noticed a difference. If thats fast, well then I should have kept the stock firmware, becasue it was the same speed.
What is a good rip speed when ripping a standard full dvd movie single layer?
What else can I try, I want to get the most out this? I'm glad I tested this before I updated, or I would've just assume it was faster.
