You should review all drivers on the machine that locked up. Hint: There is no wizard or update button to do this right. Use the old ways.
I first must admit that if I don't get this working, it's not the end of the world. I am attempting to store a library of ripped DVD files on a networked (wired) computer on my home LAN. I want to be able to play the ripped DVD files back on a Windows Media Center computer which is hooked up to my TV. I'm selecting the the movies from the MyDVD features of Windows MCE (To see how this is done click http://www.dvdxml.com/news.php) The ripped DVD movies are added as a mapped network drive.
When I play the DVD files off the local hard drive of the Windows MCE machine everything works fine. However, if I play them off a networked computer (shared folder), several minutes into playing the movie the system locks up. The Ehshell.exe process goes up to nearly 100% and soon all of the system's memory (2 GB) is consumed.
I've been able to get some ripped DVD files to play back from my second networked computer, but most will not work. However, all the ripped DVDs work with no problem once they are running off the local machine. My LAN is all wired, so bandwidth is not an issue. Playing and streaming the DVD data takes relatively little system's resources from both machines. I can't figure out why my Windows Media Center machine will lock up after several minutes of playing a ripped DVD from a networked machine. Any trouble shooting suggestions would be appreciated.
