I am experimenting with my DVD drive. I threw in a movie and tried using Mac The Ripper to see how long it would take. 31 minutes for 6.7 GB, almost a full movie DVD. Is this normal? I had some problems at first, since I had never use the drive before the region wasn't set, and MTR would crash out on me every time. So would handbrake. Once I actually played the DVD once, I set the region to 1 and then MTR ripped it, but took 31 minutes. Is that about right for an 8x dvd drive? This is a 2.4GHz iMac with 1gig of ram (2 more gigs on the way).
