    I'm new to burning dvd's. To backup a dvd that needs compression...I know it takes some time to encode/compress it before you can burn it. Is there software that is faster at doing it than others, or are all the programs the same speed.

    There's fast and then there's quality. Some encoders are faster than others, but the quality is lower. Most high quality encoders use a two pass approach, which obviously takes longer. I've used DVD2oneX, Popcorn and Nero (PC). DVD2oneX is the fastest and lowest quality. Popcorn and Nero are about equal, when Nero is set for best quality, but slower than DVD2oneX.
