Unhappy-2 DVD Shrink working extremely slow!!!

I installed the new DVD Shrink with ImgBurn. I haven't got any problem backing up DVDs with DVD Shrink and Imgburn but DVD Shrink is been working extremely slow.
It's taking over 2 hours to back up a DVD that usually would take at the most 1 hour to burn with DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter.
I read the ImgBurn users guide but I'm not sure how to do some of the settings. I don't know if I should update the firmware and I'm afraid to mess things up since I'm new in the burning scene.
I've been using white TDK DVD-R(Media ID TTHO2). I couldn't figure out how to tight the whole thing together in order the have a fast burn but maitaning the quality with no errors. I tried different burn speeds in ImgBurn to see if I could get a better speed with DVD Shrink with no sucsess. Once DVD Shrink is done and I start ImgBurn it goes pretty fast regardeless the speed I chose. The problem I think is with DVD Shrink that doesn't give a option to set up the burning speed. I don't know...
I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4020B, firware A105. My system is compatible with DVD-R. I have a Windows XP Home Edition Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.53GHz, 1GB of RAM, 72GB of free space and I have 2 drives: Maxtor 6Y080P0 and Maxtor 6Y120L0(One of them to run the programs and the other for storage).
I made sure that my Primary IDE Channel and Secondery IDE Channel had transfer Mode and Current Transfer Mode with DMA option for faster info transfer.
I read for hours in this forum trying to figure out what I need to do to get this running properly. Sometimes I get a copy protection error in DVD Shrink. If I back up the same CD using DVD Decrypter I go >Mode>ISO> Read I can save the file to my hard drive but it's saving as a .MDS instead of .ISO.
Due to lack of knowledge I don't know what to do.
If somebody can help I would really apreciate.

You can set burn speed in Shrink.
Once you get to the Backup mode, click the Burn Settings tab, you'll see Burn Speed about midle of screen. Just pick your speed.
Be sure you already have blank disc in your burner before hand.

did you actually delete the controller and reboot or just check the settings of your dma?
