I'me using the newest 1.1.0 build 1a and I get the error "Cannot write to DVD2SVCD.ini". It happens most of the time and am setting up nothing out of the ordinary. It possibly happens just before BeSweet is used.......anyone else having this problem? BTW the problem happens on two different computers....

If you have norton unerase shut it off.
If you have a anti-virus program shut it off while encoding.

Try these.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I don't have Norton UnErase but will shut down PC-Cillin. Strange though, this is the first version of DVD2SVCD that exhibits this error, I've been using DVD2SVCD almost since the beginning....btw here is the generated error in the log file.....

Encoding Audio. Filename: D:\Movie\Extracted_audio_1.ac3

I also keep getting this message.
It happened since I installed the last release, 1.1.2 build 1, never happen before.
I do not have Norton unease and no virus protection software.

Usually the file is benign locked after audio extracting phase.

Try a search as there are a few more things to try on this issue.

Yep, I had this same problem through 3 versions of DVD2SVCD. I was manually burning stuff using about 4 different programs 'cuz of this error. I finally read enough of these posts and did two things. First, I went to file manager and made sure that the status of my DVD2SVCD folder and contents was not "read only" (File->Properties). And 2nd, I totally uninstalled PC-cillin. Since then it's worked perfectly, and it's so much friggin easier than doing it manually. I think this problem is common to XP, but what else are you going to use to game with? Thanks to the forum for the 5-day wait. It forced me to search for strings like this one.:p

Never had this problem on my old box, but my new A7N8X came with PC-cillin and now i have this problem. I had no clue why, thanks to this thread, now i know :rolleyes:.

SpliffyLeReu thanks very much for this.

One question. Did shutting off PC-cillin work or were you forced to completely un-install it to make DVD2SVCD work?

I had to uninstall it. I had already turned it off, but was still having the problem. I may not have turned it off correctly, though. I went to Start->Run, and typed msconfig, clicked the last tab (Startup), and unchecked all the virus stuff, but it didn't work.
