I've never waited more than four hours. I tried it a few times and
after four hours or so I've cancelled it and ripped it in 'perfect'
format. So, I guess what you are seeing is probably normal, although
someone will correct me if I'm wrong about this.
I was not so much concerned about file size as having the DVD menus. I
thought that I had read a post that anything less than 'perfect' would
give you the menus. Can someone confirm if this is true? If so, and I
now know that I can expect a 12 hour transcode, I may just rip some
'excellent' DVDs before going to bed.
