Hell all, my first time on the boards
I just purchased a sony 710ul. I bought an external drive because I have a laptop. My laptop is a 2.3 P4, it came with a built in sony Dvd+r 4x. I have been ripping and burning dvd's for a little over a month with some good success. I decide however that my drive was just to slow so I purchased the new sony. THis is where my problem begins.
I use DVD Shrink to load the dvd to my hard drive. When I do so with my new sony drive i get a rate of about 3,500 KB/s I though perhaps this should be faster. This takes me about 25 minutes for a full movie with no menus or subs removed, I like full movies. I burn using nero 6 the newest version and the full version, I did not load the version that came with my new drive because I already had this one.
The problem is my friend has the same drive and it only takes him about 3 mintues to burn a disc after he uses shrink , It is taking me about 30 minutes which is the same time i was geting with my 4x writer. Any suggestions would be appreciated
