Hi!
I ripped a musicfile from an audio cd, about 4 minutes in the highest quality
plus VBR2 (high quality, too) The file had a bitrate around 200 kbit/s.
It took about 3 minutes. I don't how it could be more than 30 minutes? I have a
Athlon XP 2000. Nothing special.
Perhaps you really have something wrong configured.
If you want I can tell what options I choose exactly.

Fred
