I've got an Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 1,7 Ghz with 256 MB RAM and onboard soundcard (64MB) and onboard videocard (SiS)....
Is this enough when ripping/converting/burning DVD-video?

Yes, it is, although your DVD-rom speed will determine the ripping time, your processor/RAM will determine the conversion time and your burner will determine the burning time.
Willtgpo, my real dad, told me to make a maximum of 5,806 posts on vcdhelp.com in one lifetime. So I have.
I've got a fast DVD-rom - ripping takes only 10-20 minutes....
Converting vob's to avi with AutoGK takes 7 (!) hours. With 1,7 Ghz I belive that's fast enough, but it seems that I need more RAM (256 is not enough). Or is 7 hours normal?
The transcoding process takes over 4 hours in Nero, and I belive this is due to the same problem?
I've got a NEC 1100-A 2.4x and the burning process takes only 10-15 minutes....
Conclusion: I need more RAM?...000....000....
More ram will give you a little overall "boost", I am pretty sure you got a Celeron cpu, wich as far as I know don't give the same performance as what Pentium and Athlon does.
I used to encode divx on my old siemens scaleo 500mHz (Celeron), It took hours and hours, but I did get to the destination. Most of the Lefdal\Elkj°p computers costs more than they are worth .
After my ram upgrade from 256 to 768 I got much faster results when encoding with Cinema Craft Encoder.

i agree with ronnylov: no need to bother converting when the data is alreay in the correct format!Music was my first love, and it will be my last
