Copy DVD to HD image very slow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
K3b creating DVD image seems to run very slowly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to create image of DVD on HD
Creating image eems to run very slowly
Should read and copy at normal speed
Using same laptop, DVD and disk, the K3b that comes with Knoppix 5.1.1
k3b uses other tools to read the DVD. Mainly involved are:
- the kernel
You can try
# readcd dev=/dev/cdrom f=dvdimage.raw
on Knoppix and Fedora and report the difference.
If you are able to use the Knoppix kernel on Fedora or vice versa this would
help; or using the readcd/readom binary from Knoppix on Fedora and vice versa.
I have tried again, and the speeds are comparable. I'm closing this bug report.
