Hi, wesociety, Iâ€™m sorry it didnâ€™t work out for you. It is some time ago since I tried â€˜AudioDVDCreatorâ€™; I really donâ€™t have the need for it. Back then it was v.1.2 and I only tried with wav files as source files. However, today I installed v.1.5 (not 1.52) to give it a try with mp3 files. Every thing works fine here. It takes some time (3.5 hour) but the job is done. However, I was quite disappointed about the poor quality of the output files. This is properly because I chose AC3, instead of PCM as output format, or perhaps because that I used mp3 files as source files.
Under the file creation process I discovered a very heavy CPU load (100%). That kind of CPU usage would most likely â€œkillâ€ an Overclocked/unsteady system. Normally I donâ€™t overclock my system, but sometime ago I was toying around with my FSB and having a good time, clocking my P4 2,4 up to 3,0. My system was rock solidâ€¦…hmmm…until I was trying to encode some files with the notorious â€˜Cinema craft encoderâ€™. After that, I reset my FSB to normal and every thing was fine again.
My point with telling you this, is that: if youâ€™re running an overclocked system, it might help to reset it back to normal, to prevent your computer from crashing.
