Im using dvdshrink3.2 to rip and dvd decrypter to burn. Strangely,the drive is burning just fine, im using memorex dvd +r. Im using Windows XP SP2. I have the nec 6500A installed in a toshiba Satellite s206 2.8GHZ with 896 mb of ram.
To tell the whole story:
I flashed to liggy's modified fw and it worked for 5 burns, then the computer started shutting down in the middle of ripping, while using dvdshrink. So I flashed back to stock fw and it worked fine for 5 rips and then started shutting down again. There are times when playback of discs is fine but then the computer will shutdown in the middle of ripping and then the next time I try disc playback its like the computer is hanging up.
Just now, I successfully ripped a movie using dvddecrypter, but when I try to play back the files in any of my players they freeze up or are very choppy. The fact that video files, not just discs, are freezing really baffles me.
Its as if the file transfer is too slow for playback or ripping, yet ,even now, burns are perfect.
I asked liggy about this and he said it must be a software issue?
Here is a link I found of someone having the exact same problem.
I cant understand why dust could have been this person's problem though ,when dvd decryptor runs for just as long as dvd shrink when ripping a disc.
