I am trying to convert a Blu-ray movie to the MKV format. I am using AnyDVDHD to rip an image of the Blu-ray to my hard drive. I then use RipBot264 to try to perform the conversion. I'm able to select the streams to be demuxed, and RipBot264 performs the demuxing. At this point, RipBot264 displays a message on the screen, "Please Wait...Gathering Information" which nevers goes away, and the only screen option available is "Abort." I've uninstalled and reinstalled RipBot264 and the associated programs that need to be installed with RipBot264. I am running Windows Professional 64-bit on my Dell XPS410 (updated to a quad-core processor and 8GB of memory). I've tried converting multiples movies on my desktop computer and laptop, and both computers stall after RipBot264 demuxes the selected streams.
This is driving me crazy. Does anyone have any ideas, or do you have this problem?

Try ripping to a normal directory and not to an ISO.
When I rip the Blu-Ray to my hard drive using AnyDVD HD, the process creates a BMDV and CERTIFICATE directory. With RipBot264, I select the largest mt2s file in the STREAM directory inside the BMDV directory as input. It appears that the demuxing works correctly (I've checked temp folder that the RipBot uses for output.
I've reinstalled AnyDVD, but I have ripped any Blu-Rays after the installation. I double-checked my Pioneer BDR-205 firmware, and it's up to date.
Any more suggestions?
