Does anyone have any idea what would cause my computer to hang repeatedly when trying to rip a dvd to my hard drive?
I'm running Windows XP with 2gb ram and a 300gb hd. I use Anydvd HD 188.8.131.52 or DVDFab Platinum 5.1. I have my antivirus turned off. This computer is one of two connected to the internet via a router, but it's being used after hours, so it's the only computer running. Furthermore, when I'm ripping a dvd, I'm doing nothing else whatsoever on the computer.
At times, I can rip several DVDs without incident. Then, I will attempt a rip and have the computer hang on me 5 times regardless of which software I use. I've looked through the Event Viewer logs and the only one showing up at present is a few NetDDE errors, Event IDs 12 and 212.
If anyone has been through this nightmare themselves, I would greatly appreciate knowing what you did to remedy the problem.
