Vista media center bluray issues with Arcsoft Total Media

I have an HTPC with vista ultimate 32 bit.   I added a bluray drive and am using arcsoft total media theatre 3 version 3.0.1.120.  After watching a bluray for about an hour it just cuts out and goes back to VMC.  Sometimes it does this after 5 minutes.  Its not throwing any errors or writing to the event log so i'm at a loss.  Could it be a bad drive?  Bad codec?  overheating? bad ram?  

PS: The only other thing I have installed is the vista codec bundle for watch mkv etc.  
PSS: Is arcsoft the way to go or should I use the windvd 8 that came with the drive?

Will it integrate with VMC?

I guess I could just try it outside of VMC for testing purposes.

After biting the bullet I purchased a copy of Cyberlink Power DVD Ultra. It seems to have remedied the problem.
