After using DVDShrink numerous times without any memory problems, I ran into the Out of Memory issue on my new gaming PC.
My usual way of making backups is first to backup the whole dvd without compression to hdd as vob-files, and then to make a compressed ISO-file afterwards.
Yesterday I was making a backup as above, but this time no compression was needed due to the complete size of the dvd.
But now I ran into the out of memory error, and each time I tried I noticed that the buffer was 1.5 - 1.6 GB while doing approx 150 MB/s.
After trying out a couple of different settings - without luck - I simply tried to make the backup directly from the dvd, and this time the backup ran ok. This time the buffer only ran up to approx 100 MB while backing up at 5-7.5 MB/s (or the max speed of the dvd drive).
However, making a backup of a different DVD as first making uncompressed vob-files and then compressing to an ISO-file did not give the out of memory issue, but on this occasion the backup was compressed to 76%. And this puzzles me a bit. Because, then what is it? Buffer overflow or buffer underrun?
Anyway, if I run into this issue again, I know just to make the backup directly from the dvd.
