Been using VSO since DIVXtoDVD and never had any problem. Recently, downloaded an iso and extracted the VIDEO-TS to convert the file from PAL to NTSC. The extracted file played fine on my pc, is processed fine by both GSpot and CloneDVD2 but freezes (?) ConvertXCtoDVD to the point that someting is encoding very fast but not the movie. Stopping the conversion results in a "conversion stopped, Please wait" but it doesn't stop. The file continues encoding with no CPU usage showing and probably wouldn't stop until my HDD was full. Task Manager won't shut down ConverXtoDVD and my pc won't shut down unless the power is cut. All running programs including my AV shut down but not ConvertXtoDVD. Another download of a VIDEO-TS folder, same thing. Many attempts, same thing. Reinstall ConvertXtoDVD, same thing. Every other file type converts fine and the resulting VIDEO-TS burns fine too. Not sure when thiis started but seems to be since a new MB and CPU and reformat last week. I'm grasping but XP Pro with SP3, could SP 3 be the issue, that's new too? Nero will burn the file but imports the original VIDEO-TS larger than it is and wants a DVD 9, never convert with Nero anyway so no biggie but interesting. I assume ImgBurn would burn either but that's not the point. Screenshots enclosed of one partial encode before I powered off but have no idea what it is( ignore the cursors showing). VIDEO-TS and AUDIO-TS empty, info in MENU_SNAPS, whatever that is.
