A lot can depend on the hardware involved.

Time to upgrade:

Fastest blu ray reader on the market, then use a 256GB SSD only for a scratch drive for rips and encodes.


Problem solved.

Yours is slow?! Mine copies at about 8 MB/s, which makes yours 15 times faster. Someone's in a hurry smile.gif

My RAID 0 Samsung 7200rpm's are way faster than 15x reading blu ray.

I don't need SSD.

reading from my Samsung and writing to a 2TB Hitachi 7200rpm... I can get 30x speed from a bluray iso

yeah. I am thinking a 30x reading blu ray drive would be worth $99 IMO.

The BD reader is the only bottleneck unless you're writing to a usb stick.

Wrong. If you check the specs, that drive reads dual-layer BD-ROMs at 8x, the same as a number of drives have been doing for a couple years.

The burning speed is almost always faster than the BD-ROM read speed for drives from the last few years. That is because the burning speed can be increased with higher power lasers, but that does not help much with the read speed. Read speed has been stuck at 8X for dual-layer BD-ROMs for a while now.

They are so fast compared to 2x CD ROMS (had one in my 386) that I don't mind (grin). But really, if I'm copying something off of one, I start it up before dinner and it is done after eating.

riplock?

NOTE: As one wise professional something once stated, I am ignorant & childish, with a mindset comparable to 9/11 troofers and wackjob conspiracy theorists. so don't take anything I say as advice...

I was just going to say Riplock is your issue. So you are saying you flashed to custom firmware that removed riplock and it still doesn't read near rated?

What is rated speed?

I get 8-12x no problem. I guess it's ok. I got 88x from my RAID 0 scratch disc from an ISO. lol

What are you actually trying to find out. Why BD Drives aren't as fast as hard drives? Why your BD Drive isn't as fast as you think it should be?

The former requires a brief explaination, the latter, requires troubleshooting.

RAID protection is only for failed drives. That's it. It's no replacement for a proper backup.
