    I used to swear by DVDFlick; when I used to used years ago it used 100% of CPU. Now it only uses 20% and takes forever! Even if I set it to 8 cores, 4 cores, or 2!

    Tried using handbrake but that obviously doesn't create an ISO which I can burn a dvd from.

    So... I just need a good free piece of software similar to DVDflick which actually uses all 8 threads on my CPU!

    Thanks in advance!

    Cancelled the above one,

    Tried one off that list (burnaware) and it just wasted one of my two remaining DVDs by creating two empty folders called Video_ts and audio_ts:

    Also installed search bars, and changed my homepage, couldn't opt out!

    Guess I'll just have to use DVDFlick, it'll take hours, but at least I know it works. Shame to have an expensive CPU and not even be able to use it!


    Guess there's a few paid programs that'll do the job but I'm skint and was hopeful that I could find a good free one.

    Or maybe someone could tell me how to use handbrake to encode a file so it's ready to burn to a DVD that can play in a DVD player. Every guide is for using handbrake to RIP DVDs
