DVD Copying

  1. What is the best way and fastest to copy a dvd with one dvd burner. The way I usually do it is use 'DVD Shrink 3.2'. It Decrypts and rips and burns all in one. The whole process takes around an hour. Is there a better way or something different that would make it faster?

    That is a pretty good time.
    Only to be improved by getting another DVD-drive for reading 'on the fly'.

    Then just make sure you have them hooked up on different ribbons, so they can read and write to each other quickly.

    But personally I would rip to HDD first and then burn to DVD to ensure the highest quality and no data loss.

    Or don't rip disks that need to be compressed to fit on a 4.7gig dvd :)

    Ones that don't have macromedia encryption are even faster.

    But actually the only thing thats going to speed it up much at all is a faster processor and maybe more ram, dvd shrink is about the simpliest and fastest way there is that I know of.
