    I cloned a DVD last night for my Creative Zen Vision:M 60gb.
    Total procesing time: 5.5 hours. Damn. That's a long a$$ time to process a non-protected DVD that is 1 hour long.

    Any suggestions on how I can speed this up? If not, can I run more than 1 Clone DVD application at the same time to improve efficiency?

    You do not have the fastest system on the planet to say the least, so what you're experiencing may be normal. However, there are somethings that you can check:

    a) Is DMA enabled for your drives in
    i) Windows XP?
    ii) Windows Vista?
    iii) general?

    b) Is the original source disc bad? If so, the reading process will take longer.
    Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. Select the tab labeled "scandisc". Select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your disc is bad and needs to be exchanged--even if it plays fine (or your optical drive could be slowly dying).

    c) Did you select an appropriate burn speed in whatever program you're using? Obviously 4x is going to take longer than 12x.

    d) Try another cable on the back of your burner (try an 80 wire cable if you have an ide burner). Maybe your existing cable has gone bad.

    e) Try defragmenting your hard drive.

    f)) Ensure speed control is unchecked in Anydvd (or at least, ensure "Slow and Quiet" is not enabled).

    Also: what version of CloneDVD mobile were you using? v1.1.6.0 should have a significant speedup compared to 1.1.5.x
