Is it possible to make clonedvd work with one DVD and then another one automatically?

    Alright please let me try and explain my question a little bit better.
    Say that you have two DVD-burners on your computer. Would it then be possible to load both of them with DVDs and then tell CloneDVD that you first want the software to handle the DVD called "A" and then once "A" is done continue on with "B" and potentially a "C" once "B" would be done....

    I am thinking and hoping that you understand what I am curious about finding the answer to, if not please don't hesitate to ask questions.

    Put the DVDs in both drives, open 2 instances of CloneDVD, and run them both at the same time.

    But wouldn't running two processes at the same time take up more computer power and by doing so it would also take a long time to finish both of them? ( compared to running first one and then the other... )

    Takes a little bit longer, but not a lot. That's why you have multi core CPUs.

    Command line CloneDVD2 for use with AnyDVD

    It is possible to do a script to automate the process, but it ain't for the faint of heart or someone who doesn't have 100,000% computer-fu skills.

    As the first line in the thread says this is unsupported beta software, so if it doesn't work there is no support available.

    Probably not. It should be almost twice as fast.

    That assumes the process is consuming 100% of the relevant resources (CPU, I/O, etc.), which is most assuredly does not. I'm usually ripping from 5 drives at a time.
