Go Faster than Ever Before! DVDFab Now Supports NVIDIA® CUDA™

August 28th, 2010 by DVDFab QA Team 1128,737 views

What is CUDA?

CUDA is NVIDIA’s parallel computing architecture that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the GPU (graphics processing unit), which performs better in computation in applications traditionally handled by the CPU.

CUDA has several advantages over traditional general purpose computation on GPUs:

Scattered reads – code can read from arbitrary addresses in memory.

Shared memory – CUDA exposes a fast shared memory region (16KB in size) that can be shared amongst threads. This can be used as a user-managed cache, enabling higher bandwidth than is possible using texture lookups.

Faster downloads and readbacks to and from the GPU.

Full support for integer and bitwise operations, including integer texture lookups.

DVDFab products are among the earliest applications adopt NVIDIA CUDA technology which can largely improve the performance of app’s computation and video encoding/decoding, in particular for HD video’s processing. For happier user experience of customers, DVDFab keeps improving and has been updated with the newest NVIDIA CUDA. Now, with a computer running on CUDA-enabled GPU, you can use DVDFab products to copy/rip your DVD/Blu-ray movies or convert videos in a speed much faster than ever before, although DVDFab has always been saving your time with multi-core CPUs and batch conversion supported. And your computer will run much smoother since more CPU resources are spared. Thanks for CUDA!

    Thanks to the team for this improvement. If you plan to compress or transcode many Blu-ray discs, you need CUDA.

  • Thierry

    Very good product but I noted that your free product DVDFab decrypter can’t make anymore copy full DVD to hard disk or DVD. Is that a new strategy for this new version?

    Anyway really a very good product and we hope new improvements.

  • Thelos

    Can dvd fab convert movies to sansa products? ie. fuze etc…

  • James

    Ever since I updated to the new 8 version of DVD Fab, I can rip a DVD to my external hard drive but, it no longer plays on Win Media. Says I am missing a Codec, which never came across this with the previous version. I can play the ripped movie on my television though.

  • Vince Murrish

    Such an amazing Write-up! I Actually enjoy Reading through it, very good insights, the Write-up is very ell-Stated. A thumbs up!


    Ever since the DVDFAB 8 upgrade(8022) was introduced I cannot get it to open unless I right click the icon. I cannot open the program! The program appears (right click), but it doesn’t respond. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this, but nothing seems to rectify thid problem. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve deleted the file and started from scratch. I even downloaded the beta 8023. NOTHING! I can still use 7070.

  • DVDFab_Frank

    Contact DVDFab support team via service@dvdfab.com, out professional support team will help you to figure out.

  • Scott

    I have version 8. I moved. When I setup the computer I used all of the USB ports on the MB in the back. When I started the computer it took forever to post and DVDFab would act like it was working but would fail at copy. I called the motherboard maker and they said memory may be bad. So I pulled a stick and it posted faster but DVDFab still didn’t copy. So just for the heck of it I pulled the USB hub that has 6 more USB ports. Put the memory back in and it posted fine and DVDFab copied. Weird, I think I need to update the bios firmware. You may have something similar going on.

    First of all great job for the CUDA version (I have one at the office…). Now, do you have a plan for ATI 58xx series ? I mean OpenCL rather than CUDA

  • rj

    More specifics please what type of card was used? perhaps a video demonstrating cuda! Would be nice. even demonstrating all or some of your Full Version Paid Products would be nice!

    I just bought the DVD ripper, but because of CUDA compatibility problems, it is not possible to rip some of the formats. I haven’t figured out yet, if it is possible to do the rip without the wonders of CUDA? I got an iMac running the latest version of Nvidia drivers and Windows 7 ultimate. Any comments and experiences would are welcome!

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hi, Joachim,Our support Team has written to you and provided the solution for your problem in the mail.Thank you for your question.

  • lapc506

    I need an answer for my problem! I have a PC with this specs:
    MSI G31TM-P21 Motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe (2.13 GHz)
    Seagate 500GB 7200rpm SATA2 HHD

    2GB DDR2 RAM
    NVidia GeForce GT 220 1GB with CUDA 1.2
    Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

    I’m using DVDFab but I can’t convert any video neither rip any DVD becuase I can’t use CUDA nor DXVA nor CoreAVC nor the default option (Program) to decoding anything!!! Someone else is having this problem???

  • DVDFab_Malcolm

    Hi, lapc506,

    Please tell us which version you are using, 30-day trial version/free version/registered version?

    If you are using the trial version, to continue using the software after the 30-day evaluation period, it allows you to rip DVD/Blu-ray movies to hard disk drive with free version of DVDFab HD Decrypter, it can not allow to burn movie files to blank DVD/BD Disc, you can not do the “converting” thing, and compression application is not available any more unless you order at http://www.dvdfab.net/order.htm and get the registered version.

    If you are using DVDFab registered version, please tell us your registered E-mail. And we will check it in our database.

    I’m not able to get CUDA to work. I have a Sony z-series laptop, equipped with both Intel graphics and an nVidia GT 330M graphics chip. The choice is controlled by a switch on the keyboard, with “Stamina” engaging the Intel graphics, and “Performance” engaging the nVidia chip. DVDFAB works fine in “Stamina” mode, but when I switch to the nVidia chip, DVDFAB gives me an error message that I need to update the driver from the original driver (version came with the machine to something more modern. There IS an updated driver on the nVidia site for this chip, but there is also a stern warning NOT to use it for Sony z-series laptop, as the driver has been customized by Sony. Currently, my current driver is the only one available on the Sony support site. Thus, I am unable to use CUDA, and that’s shame. Any help here?

  • Chris

    I am running a Lenovo laptop with Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M card and DVDFab (purchased).

    If I leave CUDA enabled it crashes DVDFab when I try to rip to an iPhone / iPad. Seems to be ok if I rip to a .avi though. If I disable CUDA then I can rip to iPhone but it takes a long time.


    Much thanks,

  • Chris

    I am looking for comparison’s of encoding speed using CUDA vs. Not. Has anyone done any benchmarking on this?

    System specs are:

    i7 920
    6GB RAM
    GeForce 8800GT

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hello, chris, you can just compare other dvd ripping products with dvdfab. This is the easiest way. Compare the conversion speed, try to record the time.You may try to compare the conversion speed by enable CUDA or disable CUDA.

  • Cher

    Since I updsted to DVDFab 8, lots of problems. First, it takes several minutes for the program to recognize the DVD in the first place, eventually rips it…burns it onto a blank and after burning is finished…the drawer won’t open and the process won’t FINISH. I tried to just open the movie from files to burn but again,nothing. Great! what’s going on. Do some movies have such great protection that DVDFab csnnot break them.Peroid? anyone else have this problem. any suggestions?

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    hi, cher, could you please tell us which version are you using? the version No. for example, DVDFab has been working well according to test on different computers. Usually, it will recognize your DVD in less than 30 seconds as tested.When ripping or copy dvd, you should start DVDfab first, then insert your DVD in the ROM and you will see the DVD will be loaded automatically. You may find more on DVDFab tutorial or go to Video tutorial on Youtube. If these problem exist, you may try to unistall DVDFab and update to the latest version. Usually, if there’s no problem of you computer hardware, DVDFab will work well as you expected. BTW, if you still have any problems, just feel free to contact our support. Wish you a nice day!

  • eddie

    I’d like to know,as I have two similar burners on my rig,can I just burn “DIRECT,..DISC TO DISC” WITHOUT having to burn to my hdd first,NO ISO’s,none of that, IE.”ONE READ from 1st-disc on(A)Drive,TO ONE COPY/BURN to 2nd-disc on(B)Drive? I have asked a couple other times,feel like I may have been mis-understood.The answers i received..just had nothing to do with the question,perhaps i asked it wrong, hopefully this way will work!..thnx for the best program+support EVER……eddie

  • sunny

    Please insert your original blu-ray movie disc into your Blu-ray drive, then choose the Blu-ray drive as the source, choose your Blu-ray burner as your target to burn directly to see the result.

  • Ginton526

    Damm thats a good idea thanks

  • Steve


    I have had this problem since purchasing the blueray copy product.

    OS : Win7 Ultimate 64 bit – new install

    CPU: Core i7 2.8GHZ

    Graphic: Nvida GTX 260 / 270.51_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_beta

    I am unable to get CUDA working with my GTX260 adapter. It will work on my gforce 9600. Bionic uses the GTX260 CUDA function perfectly.

    If I turn off CUDA and use software everything works as expected.

    Is this a defect in your CUDA driver ?

    Below is the error I get almost immediately when trying to reduce a previously extracted full BD on disk to a BD9 in the Blu-ray Copy section..

    11:29:24: Task_1 failed! Error=1000(504.00 0 error: process exception, filter(type2:id1), info = 503.00 13,

    Graphics Chipset :
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

    CUDA Driver Version: 4.0
    CUDA Capability revision number: 1.3

    Supported Video Codecs :

    CoreAVC : is detected.

    Thank you


  • DVDFab-Johnson

    Hi, steve, sorry for the late reply, in order to get in-time support, i suggest you to send a letter to our support. Just go to Support>contact and fill in the contact form. Usually, you will get answered within 48 hours.

  • jp

    I had this, nice helpful error message eh!. I reconfigured the temp area to a disk with more space and it went away. You can do that in the general options bit at the top. Guess thats what it was…

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    yes, click the “check mark” at the top, it is for conversion settings, there you can define more space for your temp area.

  • Seth

    Does DVDFAB CUDA acceleration support SLI for using multiple graphics cards?

  • DVDFab-Johnson

    sorry, seth, DVDFab Cuda Acceleration can not support SLI for mutiple graphics cards. i have sent this problem to our working team. Perhaps, in future, DVDFab will have this feature.

  • JohnyLuky

    Hi, I have the same question, a year later. Does the current version of DVDFab now support Cuda in SLI mode ?

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    This maybe decided by our development plans but DVDFab will work hard to support more new features and meet more users needs in future.

  • Cnsd

    Installed trial version and tried to run DVD Ripper with no success. Is this your way of saying I have to buy the full version? If I can’t get the trial to work, I don’t feel it’s worth the money.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Would you please describe your problem clearly?

    DVDFab provides 30 day’s full function free trial, All our products are sold as “try-before-you-buy” software. You can try them 30 days for free, so you have enough time to verify the program’s functionality.

    Having a problem with the new movie Tin-Tin Blu-Ray version says …error reading disc

    Anyone have a fix

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    There mihgt be several reasons to cause this error reading disc:This read errors can be caused by several things.

    1. Dirty disc.
    2. Scratched disc.
    3. Bad manufactured (aka defective disc).
    4. Dirty blu-ray/DVD drive.

  • Peter F

    Have just installed a new rig with Win7/64bit and dual GTX560Ti (in SLi) + 8 core AMD but I can’t get CUDA to work with DVD-fab. I have gone through all settings but DVD-fab only using the 8 cores in CPU.
    CUDA is working really nice in the testprogram (nVidia) but how do I get it to work in my new rig?

    The old Rig (Win7/32bit w i7) was working pretty nicely with the same GTX-cards (card#1 gave 15-20% and card#2 0-5% CUDA).
    Regards Peter F

  • Peter F

    I installed Java and tested another BluRay-3D movie (IceAge 3) and CUDA started for video decoding so it looks as it is working now.
    Is there any way of increasing the speed of CUDA? It is only using 5-7% usage of one of the GPU.
    The eight CPU-cores are working 25-75% so the feed of data to the GPU looks alright.
    Is the BR-reader to slow? (6x)

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    @Peter We do not suggest users to use CUDA acceleration while doing 3D Blu-ray copy.

  • D morris

    For some reason for the past three months it’s taking up
    three hours to copy.

    It use to be no more than forty five minutes or so

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Which version did you use? In order to copy the whole movie, you may try to use the full disc or clone mode.

  • Mighty

    …designed for NVidia Cuda….yeah, nice…if only I had not to disable CUDA GPU decoding on my GTX650 because when I do that rather than encoding a 12-13fps a Bluray 3D to Half-SBS, it goes from 3-4fps to ofps and then it freezes…..
