i use the following hard/software for ripping:
- philips dvdr1640p retail (firmware p3.7 riplock-patched with mediacodespeededit)
- anydvd v126.96.36.199
- nero recode v188.8.131.52
- dvdfab decryptor v184.108.40.206 (for some new dvds anydvd is not working)
- dvdshrink v220.127.116.11 (only for testing)
most of my dvds are ripped with maximum speed, up to 16x near the end of the disc while cpu load is reaching 80-85% when the dvd has to be transcoded. but for some dvds its different. for example the dvd "hard candy" takes 40min to rip (only css protected with no other copy protections listed by anydvd, its a new retail dvd without scratches or dirt). anydvd/nero recode, dvdfab decryptor or dvd shrink only reach about 2x - 3x speed while ripping, while cpu load stays at ~20%. no other software is running in the background which would slow down the process, no other software is accessing the harddisc or dvd drive while ripping. i have no idea why some dvds are ripped so slow while most dvds rip with the highest possible speed. so can anyone explain why this is happening or even knows a workaround?
its my first post on cdfreaks, so thanks alot for any help.
