    I'm about 7TB through ripping a rather extensive library. The only thing that makes this remotely doable is to be able to use both DVD drives in my desktop machine. However, I'm not convinced that AnyDVD was written to run two copies at the same time. Unless I'm very careful to stagger inserting discs, it seems that things get messed up. Is it possible that there is some shared memory or variables that conflict? Any hints on how to make this work better?

    I had 2 internal and 2 external drives on same pc when I moved to movie only rips of my collection. Was using eac3to to demux and TSMuxer to remux. I ran all 4 at the same time. I still buy discs every couple months and will rip 2 or 3 at same time.

    Hmm. It is quite strange, as the problem isn't consistent. I have a single desktop machine with more than enough memory/cpu (I6770K) to multiplex one LG DVD burner and one Sony BD burner. Don't care about burning anymore, but it's nice to be able to stagger rip DVDs using mkMKV for my Plex media library.

    After reading the AnyDVD FAQ, I'm starting to suspect that one of both of my drives are starting to fade. I might just pick up one or two inexpensive new drives and see if that improves things.
