    I have recent purchased a Sony TRV33 and have been trying a variety of applications to convert a 12 minute (2gb) AVI to MPEG for SVCD but whenever I try my PC locks up after processing about 5% of the file, I have tried altering the page file settings but this doesnt seem to have helped, I have also tried verying settings, turning the preview off etc.

    I am running an Athlon XP 2000+ with 512mb ram and a Ge Force 4 MX graphics card.

    Any help or idea's would be greatly appreciated, the video clip plays back fine so I dont believe the stream is corrupt.

    Several things to try:

    download 'EndItAll' from the internet. It stops all background proccesses ie anti-virus freeing up memory/proccessor.

    Defragment the hard disk.

    Turn off screen savers & power save modes.

    Make sure DMA is enable for the hard disk.

    Reboot the PC before you start.

    HTH,
    Mark.
