Hey everyone. Its my first time on these forums. Looks like a helpful place. My problem is that every single time, after 10 seconds of encoding, no matter what program I'm using, it crashes. Now I have disabled all my startup programs and deleted any conflicting programs that are associated with burning. I also updated my ASPI etc. I have a top of the line system with: AMD FX-51 processor 1gig Corsair XMS 2 200gig WD HD GeForce 6800GT SB Audigy gamer 500W psu Zalman water cooling During the process of analyzing the DVD and the start of encoding, my processor only heats up to 30c. So I know the problem isnt heat related. My dvd burner didnt come with any software and I was told would run fine off of the windows drivers. Its a NEC DVD+-RW. I am trying to burn onto - DVDs. I currently tried using DVD Shrink. It analyzed the DVD fine. When I went to encode it to an ISO it crashed within 10 seconds just like the other programs. A window popped up saying. "DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue. Programming error - exception occurred" Anyone with any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again in advance.
