Error in Sonic MyDVD: "Invalid stream file type (DVDErr,-19931)"

Hi, I have Dell XPS, 2.8Ghz. XP Pro PC.  NEC 4x DVD burner and I use Sonic MyDVD to burn DVDs, ver 4.5.

I've been able to do it absolutely fine, burning lotsa flawless DVD's until today when for some odd reason, I started to burn the DVD, I got an error message. It read:

"Could not complete the last command because: Invalid stream file type (DVDErr,-19931)"

I searched the web and the only reference to it offered a solution that suggested that my 'temp' folder set in Sonic's preferences was on a drive with insufficient space.  I have 35GB open on my drive G: (G:\Sonic\Temporary), so a space problem seems an unlikely cause for me.

I tried removing the music, changing styles, etc., but none of these things seemed to help.  The error occurs early on, before the actual 'burn' begins.  My blank DVD seems unaffected.

Can any of you folks help me here?  I'd like to get moving again.  Thanks a bunch!

That seems to be referring to a sound issue.  I don't have a sound issue.  It's a DVD buring problem.

I did subsequently finally find a reference to this problem on Sonic's database; it suggested the problem was "This error occurs when an invalid video file is imported into MyDVD from an unsupported capture device or, usually ripped off of a DVD or downloaded off
the internet."

This is not me.  I captured all of the files via MyDVD per usual using the same capture device I've used all along.  None of my files came from any other source.

"Error: "No video decoder available for this stream type."
A video or audio source file (such as MPG, AVI, WMV, WMA) must be playable on your computer before MyDVD can create a DVD or VCD from it. If you cannot view or hear a file using video or audio player programs on that computer, MyDVD will display an error similar to the message above.

Installation of a codec pack might allow your computer to play certain video or audio files. You should first determine the codec needed, then obtain the specific codec, or a program that installs multiple codecs."

Maybe your codec is corrupt, have you tried reinstalling the software?
