Howdy, To say I'm a newbie is understating it quite a bit. I've downloaded Smartripper and it runs fine with NO DVD loaded. When I put a DVD in, then stop it playing and exit PowerDVD, I start Smartripper...here's where it goes wrong. Smartripper (SR) comes up says its trying to access DVD, then the dreaded blue screen. This states: An exception 0E has occurred at 0028:C15C9E47 in VxD---. This was called from 0028:C1835C88 in VxD---. It may be possible to continue normally. Press any key to continue normally. Well I press a key and Smartripper is not responding, then, blue screen again. This time, A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0197.82D69D0E. Current app will be terminated. This is followed by Black screen. CTL Alt Del will not end the SR task, entire system has to be rebooted as it won't let me shut down, and scandisk runs again. I've tried 2 versions of Smartripper and 2 different DVDs. What in the world am I doing wrong?????? Please Help!!!!
