    For other HDD/SSDSATA2 normal work smoothly its some problem with SATA3 Drives which alien respawn does not support properly so Make sure this steps above are required for SATA 3 SSD only .... Can you put more light and exact and detailed steps where you are getting failure we would be glad if we could find solution for you...

    Regards!

    On a side note, I just found out that DVDfab(one of my favorite video/audio rippers) supports CUDA. It makes the decoding/encoding process amazingly fast as opposed to not having CUDA.

    I didn't even notice it until I installed DVDFab 8.1.0.5 now I have 8.1.3.2.
    On my 6990M CF systems, a 50GB BD-Rom would take close to 2 hours or more. Both GPU's are used through the conversion process.
    I love CUDA.

    As you can see from my pic I also use Badaboom. Badaboom is my favorite conversion program outside of commercial disc based media. Cuda is really amazing with this generation of software & Nvidia hardware. Badaboom was fast with my old GTX 260M compared to non-CUDA. Now it's unreal....lol.

    At the sake of starting another thread, could anyone recommend where the best place is to purchase a pair of Nvidia 580Ms? I think I've had enough of ATI after sticking with them for years.

    Nothing really but I'm looking at options in case I get more frustrated with AMD drivers than I already have.
