I was originally using the program CDEx v1.50 to rip using the Lame MP3 encoder. These are CDs that I've ripped in the past without any problems (using this very same program). It would freeze 2 or 3 times every CD. When I say freeze, I mean my whole computer will stop responding, even my mouse. I don't get a blue screen, just see my desktop, so I have to reboot by pushing the reset button.
I then installed an updraged version, CDex v1.70 beta, but it still freezes, though less often. Now it will freeze after every 2 or 3 CDs have been ripped.
I was doing some searching online and came across an article about the Lame MP3 DLL having a bug and needing replacing or something, but, wouldn't you know it, I tried ripping again, and my computer froze, so I lost the article and can't seem to find anything about it.
Any ideas? Or has anyone heard of the Lame MP3 encoder needing to be upgraded or something?
thanks for any advice.
