    I have a similar problem with TMPGEnc DVD Author 1.5.26.73. In my case, the DVD is written, but Author's DVD writing tool crashes after the DVD is burned and ejected from the drive and the user is asked to "exit the application." The main Author program isn't affected, just the writing tool. I keep hoping Pegasys will post some kind of patch...eventually. The program's DVD writing tool worked just fine before XP2, but not now.

    I suspect it might be due to the installation of XP Service Pack 2, a bug that Pegasys has yet to acknowledge. It could be that Author 1.6 might be immune, but 1.5.26.73 sure isn't.

    You're welcome.

    Here's the exact message I get:

    DVD Writing Tool
    ERror signature
    AppName: dvdwriter.exe AppVer: 1.0.1.25 ModName: dvdburn.dll
    ModVer: 1.0.1.25 Offset: 00002649

    Then the DVD Writing Tools offers to save a text error log, but doesn't.

    Interesting... I have been using author a few times, usually I create VOB files from HDTV, shrink with DVD Shrink to fit on 4.7GB. But DVD Shrink will not shrink Menus creater in TMPGenc Author. I found it is necessary to create an ISO from the DVD Writer part of Author. This is where I strike the problem with the DVD writer. It starts creating the ISO OK, up to 12%, then hangs. Comes out with a error message - File not found or ", and that's it, incomplete sentence in the dialog box....
    A few seconds later the dvdburn.dll message appears.

    Guess what? I installed XP SP2 a while ago.

    All other apps are running OK, but this is the first time I have tried to create an ISO with the DVD writer. So it may not be SP2.

    I will hunt out another app that will convert my already created VOBs into an ISO.

    Good luck.
