That's no helpful, as I already stated I am using handbreak. I found part of the problem with how long it was taking, I had a background application running that was eating 40% of my CPU. Thought I had shut it down. Now I'm trying to find a quality setting that works for me. Lossless (0) produced a 90g video file, and wouldn't play on wmc for some reason. And the default of 20 had spots where it appeared to skip frames. Was hoping for some direction so I don't have to do 20 rips to find the right settings.
