Just been reading about DVD Idle Pro and it sounds very good. Apart from doing other things, it seems whilst watching a DVD it spins the DVD drive up faster than normal DVD playback speed (1x ?) and caches the data to RAM and to your hard drive. So after watching approx 1/3rd of the movie all the data has been streamed off your DVD drive and is being pulled from RAM and your Hard Drive. Saving Noise, and wear on your DVD Player, also if you are using a laptop saving power as your battery does not have to spin the drive for the whole 2 hours anymore. Anyone use is, and/or know if it at all affects image quality? If you are watching the same DATA then I don't suppose it matters where it's coming from does it? Here's a link to it's homepage: http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-idle-pro.htm I like the sound of this (esp for my laptop) but also desktop as well, but never heard it mentioned before. Sounds like a win win piece of software. Anyone?
