    i have a macbook pro with the superdrive. i bought it at launch.

    i've been using the DVD drive heavily over the past few weeks. some of this includes ripping DVD's.

    i noticed two things this week:

    (1) DVD encodes that used to take 2 hours now take 3.5 hours at the same settings.

    (2) sometimes it will end the encode like 75% of the way through the movie as if it were completely finished.

    i realize this could be a number of things...but...
