  1. Hi All

    I have been ripping my music video dvds with no problem but recently the company I subscribe to changed over to dvd-r and I noticed that when trying to rip the speed slows down

    When i do a regular dvd I get speeds up to 7x when I do dvdr I get speeds up to 2x

    Any idea why this happens

    Thanks

    It has nothing to do with -R or +R.

  3. thanks for your reply ...I find it hard to believe it has nothing to do with it


    For example
    Vol 75 ripped at 7.4X and it was a dvd
    Vol 76 ripped at 2.8x and was a dvdr

    So this isn't a +R vs -R issue? You are talking about factory pressed DVDs vs home burned DVDs?

    A DVD+/-R has less reflectivity than an pressed DVD. Therefore, it is harder to rip with any kind of speed. Just be happy that you can rip it completely as it is.

    Plus it depends on the drive, is it locked, the interface, etc.

    I just ripped a 7.42gb DL+R last night and it ripped at 16x

    I have some older Ritek discs that rip pretty slow compared to others. I just chalk it up to being older, slower discs. These were 4x MAX burn discs I used to use for my old Philips recorder.

    Again...it's got nothing to do with what you are doing wrong or what kind of software the company uses to burn these discs. Their next batch you buy may rip faster....maybe not. It all depends on what manufacturer they choose to use for their blanks.
    There is no setting in their burning software to "jerk you around" and make the disc rip slower....it's a roll of the dice problem that you will never solve. AND...the best copying software(of non-copy protected discs) is FREE....ImgBurn.

    Some DVD burners have locked rip speed. But that would be the same locked speed with commercial DVDs or burned DVDs. You might be able to change the rip speed with a program like MediaCodeSpeedEdit. But it may not work with your particular burner.
