Windows 7: How Long Should VLC Take...

How Long Should VLC Take...

... to rip a DVD?

It's been rocking along since, I dunno, 10:00 this morning. Seems like 4-hrs is a bit longish? Or is my rig just that bad?

Edit! - started ripping at 11:50, so it's been about 2hrs and 20min. File is 2.25GB at this time, so based on that it's going to take 8hrs to rip? Really? Ugh.

Hi.


Yes is very slow.


Is not dependent only from your system cpu\ram... power\speed.


If your dvd writer is 4x-6x speed then it will take hours and hours to send the data in the hard disk.


Also try with this http://www.dvddecrypter.org.uk/Setup...er_3.5.4.0.exe

depends on already mentioned system specs as well as quality of the drive, it's error correction and the physical compatibility of the CD/DVD in question.
Depending on settings, your Anti Virus might slow down the transfer,too.

But why would you rip with VLC? There are better programs for the task out there. If you explain what you're trying we can make recommendations

AV is by Avast. I like it. It's free.

What I want is to transfer my entire DVD collection (400 titles) to HDD. While I like having the physical library, it would be nice to have everything on the network. VLC apparently will do the job but it isn't quick and the process doesn't appear to be reliable at all.

Any software suggestions?

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
