Artefacting on DVD RIP's

Hi guy’s, I’m having this real problem with my DVD rip’s. Everything I do seems to artefact on a regular cycle, say every 15 - 20 secs the video will artefact and skip. Now this never happened with DVD Fab 4 so I did a clean un-install, re-downloaded DVD Fab 5 and re-installed, still no joy. I thought OC’ing of my cpu may be causing it so I put it back to stock frequencies, still no luck. My next guess was to disable running app’s, so I shut down my network connection and virus checker and anything else I could think of or that wasn’t necessary, still the same. The system is:

Asus P5K motherboard
Q6600 cpu
2Gb Corsair XMS2 PC5400
ATI X1950XT
LG GSA 6147B

I’m bamboozled! I’ve never had problems with DVD Fab before.:sad:

Hi Python15
How long have you been O/C the CPU ? this is a major factor for this issue.
when O/C it will help your system a great deal if you run SpeedFan, if you don’t have it you can find it HERE

Hi Stormjumper, only oc’d it for about a week, gradually took it up 100Mhz at a time over that week. Was using Core Temp to monitor it and it didn’t get much above 64 degs. Since my last post tried a rip on a different drive, an LG GCC 4521B, thinking it mat be the drive still the same although it did rip 10 minutes faster than the GSA 4167B

I should add that that temp was at 100% load

Well, at least I’ve concluded that this problem is software based. I installed DVD Fab 5 on my other hard drive running Vista Ultimate and it rip’s without problems. Is there any programmes or app’s that are known historically to conflict with DVD Fab? I should also have stated in my first thread that the system was running XP Pro. Hope this doesn’t end up being a re-format!

Hello again my friend
There are a few software programs that can cause issues with DVDFab, Nero INCD
RecordNow(some members have reported this but I have no problems)
DVD43
Roxio’s "Drag-n-Drop application
there are others but can’t remember them right off hand

BTW forgot to ask are you using Packet writing or SAO writing, hope it is SAO writing cause that is what you should be using

Thanks for the reply Stormjumper. Yeah it’s SAO. And I noticed that my Vista drive doesn’t have Nero on it, however, saying that, I’ve had Nero 7 on my XP drive for a while now without problems. Looks like I may be going down the format road after all!:sad:

If you’re going to reformat anyway, first try disabling virtual memory and defragging the drive, then re-enable virtual memory. This will clean up the swap file and may fix it without the hassle of a reformat.

Thanks Signals, worth a try eh?

Hi Python15.

I am almost sure AnyDVD and DVD Fab are incompatible.
When FAB and AnyDVD are on the same system, AnyDVD must be disabled,
otherwise FAB does work properly, if at all.

:iagree:…yes, true of any on-the-fly decrypting software, such as dvd43 mentioned above by my good friend SJ.
You should receive a warning from Fab alerting you to this, however.

BTW, InCD (nero) is another piece of software that is notorious for causing conflicts with burning software.

could you please download ImgBurn and post a burn log?

There you have it, can’t see anything wrong though!

Apologies for the double post but I think I’ve cured it!! It looks like it was something lurking in my registry! Ran TweakNow Reg Cleaner and DVD Fab now works… well…FAB! I am well pleased, even recoding to MP4 works well now whereas it also used to stutter and loose sync. Woohoo! Thanks for all the help and suggestions though guy’s, you were a real help!:bow:

Glad you got your problem worked out and things are running good, try not to be a syranger.
Have a nice day :flower:
