Just got a new i7 2.93, and HandBrake takes forever to scan DVD's prior to starting the rip/encode. I am aware of the riplock issue and do unfortunately have the GA32N Hitachi drive, but all the riplock posts I have seen relate to ripping/encoding times and I am having trouble finding any info on slow "Scanning new source" performance. When I add a DVD source in 0.9.4 64 bit handbrake (with 64bit VLC) it hangs on "Scanning new source" for a long time, then slooooowly scans each title- taking 20-30 min till I can start. My 3,1 Mini takes less than minute do to the same thing. Encoding speeds are prob slower than should be but still faster than the mini, getting about 40-50 fps when ripping from DVD. So anyone with the GA32N drive experience the same thing, or is this unrelated to the riplock? Only other thing I can think of is I shut down DVD Player when it first opened and never set a region code, but apparently you do not have to do that anymore. Just trying to figure out if I need to replace the drive or not, as I can stand the mediocre encoding times, but not the ridiculous scanning times. I can post Activity Window info if needed, but I get a lot of "hb_demux_ps: not a PS packet (00000000)" and "scan: audio channel is not active" Cheers for the help.
