Run Instances of MakeMkv Simultaneously

Post by Mtenga » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:00 am

I have an internal and external burner and would like to rip two discs at once to speed things up. Is this possible on Windows?

Just launch MakeMKV twice. That's how I do it on Windows.

OK cheers I'll give it a go later this week. I thought that I'd read that wouldn't work but if it does then problem solved easily.

You first have to activate single-drive mode, as I explained in my reply to your other message.

In Windows, you either need to use the start menu to start a second (or third, or ...) instance, or you need to RIGHT click on the icon in the task bar, and select the top menu item (MakeMKV) to start a new instance.
