    WTF is going on?

    it says in every app i try to use for back ups that it is going to take 25-30 minutes for a back up,

    right now i am using my dell dual 2.8 and it is taking only 14 minutes.

    what do you think the problem is?

    First i would compare the speeds of the drives between your mac pro and that of the dell. The dell may have a faster burner. Also, have you actually done each and timed it to see? The estimates may be off.

    to respond to everyone:

    dell:

    using dvdfab, and a lg blu ray drive it takes 15 minutes to back up a normal movie to harddrive ripping just main feature under vts folder showing everything as 3.7 gigs

    mac pro:

    fairmount/disk utility or mactheripper:

    25-30 minutes ripping just the main feture into vts folder (showing everything as 4.07 gigs


    maybe there is someway to increase he ram towards a specific function while it is running?

    such as disc ripping allocating 50% of memory to just ripping?

    not sure, but it seems as though that windowsis doing the same function in 1/2 the time and only 2 cores, bot systems are 2.8 ghz processors.

    You're using two entirely different types of drives along with two entirely different utilities. The CPU alone is not responsible for the differences in speed in such a situation.

    ...but, then again, it is more likely riplock firmware. (learn something new every day, I do :p)

    Check it!
