Ripping multiple discs at once?

Post by indyjoe1977 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:25 am

So, to save some time, it would be handy to be able to queue up discs to rip...meaning, one drive after another. I have three optical drives in my machine, and it would be slick to just set them all up to go. Or, being able to run multiple instances of the program at once would do the same thing, and then all three drives could rip at once. Is this a feature set that can be added at all?

Check 'Options > IO > Ask for single drive mode' & you can specify a specific drive for each instance of MakeMKV.

Excellent. Thank you. Took a second to realize how it would work, but that's exactly what I was after. Thank you.

I don't know I can rip multi with Makemkv
I try to follow suggestions on this topic, it works but makes my computer really heavy slow

Old, slow hardware? Multiple I/O streams to the system drive? You REALLY need to provide more detail than you have.

I can run three instances of MakeMKV running a drive each, AND run handbrake for encoding. Handbrake in that case is 90+% of the CPU usage, while MakeMKV is 90% of the network usage.

Even my old 2GHz 2-core Celeron machine managed ripping 2 disks at once, at less than 20% CPU load.

Yeah, really, all MakeMKV is doing once the decryption is done is copying what you select from the optical drive to the hard drive you select. This is not CPU intensive at all. Doing three at a time is in the single digit CPU usage percentage for me. Now, let the PC start converting those files with DVDFab, and it's a whole 'nother story...especially UHD files.
