Unhappy DivX refuses to get transcoded

Hi everyone.

I'm having a weird conversion-problem and hope that some experts here could give me a hint, what's going wrong...

I've been searching like forever for a certain Anime (My Neighbor Totoro) and finally got my hands on a great 2 CD`s AVI-RIP. They play perfectly on my PC. I also found the suiteble Subs on the net. So I copied the AVI's to HD, sampled down the AC3 and converted the SUBs to SSA-format, for use with the VD-Subtitler. Cause I'm planning to make a nice 2-SVCD Version Everything worked fine, but then I was coming about some major-problem. While transcoding the Video (only), VD completely crashes the System. Which means everything freezes and there's no way out besides rebooting. That failure always appears at different points in the Video. Sometimes in the very beginning. Sometimes when it's almost finished or in the middle.
Because of this, and since I'm not processing the audio in any way, I think I could exclude errors in the Audio-Stream or on the CD-R (no scratches at all).

The AVI's are DivX3 Low Motion. I have Win ME and XP installed on the same PC (2 partitions), tried to encode to Div 5.02 Pro on XP and to 4.12 on ME. But it happens under both OS, so it couldn't be a codec issue neither.

I remember having similar problems time ago with "Amelie from Montmatre", and also when I use several capture-programs.

I have NO idea what I could anymore. So pleeaaseeee... if anyone has any idea how to solve this, please post...

Sounds like general system instability, make sure you got the newest drivers for, for your Motherboard and Graphics card. Try running the PC a little cooler, perhaps the the case open. And try using some less aggressive memory settings (higher cas and ras latency)
Donate your idle CPU time for something usefull.
