    Hi folks,

    I have a problem with AnyDVD-HD and my BluRay ROM (Pioneer BDC-202). I get about 4 MB/sec while ripping a movie which takes more than 3 (three!!!) hours on a BD-50. Does anyone have an idea whats wrong here?

    Check for DMA Mode

    1. Right click on My Computer
    2. Select Properties
    3. Click on Hardware
    4. Click on Device Manager
    5. Double click on IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
    6. Double click on Primary channel
    7. Click Advanced Settings and check it says DMA if available and is set to Ultra DMA, mode 5.
    8. Do the same for the secondary channel -- it should be Ultra DMA, mode 2.

    The BDC-202 is a SATA drive... :]

    I've been looking around for some info about your BDC-202. It is rated as a medium range unit and it supposedly reads Blu-Ray discs at 5X..........that could contribute to the slow read times.

    I checked my BIOS on an Intel board for PIO/DMA settings for SATA:
    Boot into BIOS...Go to "Drive Configuration"...Select the SATA port that the BDC-202 is connected to( should NOT be the lowest digit)....Hit the "Enter" key...Select "TYPE" and hit "Enter"...Select "Auto or User" and hit the "Enter" key....In "USER" you will find the settings for PIO/DMA for each SATA Port. When "Auto" is selected, it "should" automatically be DMA.

    Pause your Cursor over the AnyDVD Icaon in C:-My Computer-Program Files-AnyDVD...the version will show. Simpler and install the latest version.

    I've experienced a similar problem in the past. The problem persisted no matter what program I used to rip BD. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem but it worked for me. I generally use Nero 8 to make ISO back-ups of BD and as you stated it took more than 3 hours to rip a BD until I went into the drive settings and disabled "BD defect management"
