Has anyone here built a machine solely for ripping blu-rays? I'm attempting this and could use some help in the matter. I have an old machine that was used as a HTPC which I've converted for this purpose. It currently has 3 BD drives (which I'd like to expand to 4) and a separate HDD for each drive to write to. I've installed a separate version of Clown_BD on each HDD. I've run into a few issues doing this and could use some advice.
1) It doesn't seem like this is saving me any time. If I rip 2 discs at a time, it takes twice as long, per disc, than just ripping one. If I rip 3 discs at once, it takes 3 times as long, per disc. What's limiting this and is there anything I can do to fix this?
2) Clown_BD has run into all kinds of issues having multiple copies open. Quite often, it seems like one copy will revert back to the settings of one that was already open and the paths will get crossed. Before beginning a rip, I am having to go back and verify all options so that it points to its own version of eac3to, imgburn, tsmuxer. Not sure if I'm explaining this correctly, but here's an example. I have 3 copies of clown_bd (c:\clown, d:\clown, e:\clown). Each one is directed to use a path on it's associated HDD for the associated programs (ie c:\clown uses c:\tsmuxer, c:\eac3to, and c:\imgburn) and also rips the disc to the same drive (c:\movies). The problem I'm running into is that having 3 versions open at the same time, and they're all pointed to different directories (c:\clown might be using d:\eac3to, for example). Any ideas on this?
