Apparently, when the rendered file, named Produce.avi, reaches 3,983,453KB it switches to a second file named Produce(0).avi . At this switching point, my system almost always hangs. On occassion, after much hesitation, it continues past that point, but then usually hangs at 99% produced. It seems to have trouble "closing off" the DV-AVI files. After endless attempts, some have rendered through completely, but though I change nothing, the next file I try to render will hang again. I have no trouble rendering into MPEG.
I have a Dell Dimension 8300 with 3GB RAM. I have tried updating all the drivers, cleaning my registry with Fix-it Utilities 8 Professional (though I'm afraid to do anything but the safest repairs), cleaned and defragged my hard drives. I'm saving to a 500GB external hard drive with plenty of space. The program is running on an 80GB hard drive with 26GB free.
I've been communicating with Cyberlink customer support, but no breakthrough yet.
What am I missing?
I've attach a DxDiag file.
