    Could be overheading during the encoding process. Try cleaning out all the dust and make sure your fans are running......

    Still problems

    I installed a new hd with windows xp updated with SP2 and all other security updates. Then loaded anydvd and clonedvd and when the program gets to the burn portion my PC shuts off. Green light stays on the computer almost like sleep mode but it doesn't come back up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Is your new burner set to master or slave on the jumper switch?
    Is it running on the the same ide cable as the hard drive?
    Check the time limit in control control panel for when the system turns off disc drives to save power (power options)

    This isn't a Clonedvd issue.

    I'd get your power supply checked.

    Your PC shutting down is a hardware issue. Be certain that all RAM and any add-on cards(video,sound etc.) are properly seated. As Webslinger mentioned, your PSU may also be causing the shut downs. What brand and wattage is it?
    If the PC is pre-built...they come with good PSU's but will not tolerate much adding on. If it was included with a case purchase, it's most likely not a good one.

    CLone locks up my dvdrom and my computer half way through ripping a movie.
    I Have and AMD 2500 xp barton, asus motherboard, Maddog 4-1 dominator reader, Sony dru830A writer, Windows XP home edition with all updates.
    I tried everything in the thread for the new version/.

    Or for XP users only,
    Click Start, Run
    type regedit
    Go to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    When I examine filters the link described only gives me the lower filters which are anydvd and Elbydelay

    Nothing says upperfilters.

    I have been going crazy ever since my hd crashed and I replaced XP pro with XP Home.
    Please help.

    @ jamjma,

    “DVDROM locks up”, “My HD Crashed” and “My Computer Shuts Off”. SlySoft/ Elaborate Bytes software programs do not cause these problems. These incidents indicate that you have some type of computer HardWare component problem. It should be noted this is a continuing problem you have been experiencing since your unresolved initial Forum posting of 21st August 2007 16:54 (

    Your were previously informed by two knowledge Forum Members in you above referenced posting that your problem was a computer HardWare component problem and not SlySoft/ Elaborate Bytes software program.

    Suggest using a diagnostic software utility program similar to PassMark Burn In Test ( to diagnose what computer HardWare component is causing your problem.

    I am running an EXTERNAL R/RW DRIVE SONY DRX-830U without any problems. The SlySoft/ Elaborate Bytes software program is not causing your problem.

    Try using the standard IDE controller driver from Microsoft if you aren't already. I really don't know what you are using but the NVIDIA drivers are known to be problematic and cause a system BSOD and system reboot.
