ConvertXToDVD failing during conversion. Please help!

I keep having issues with my convertxtodvd version 5.1.0.2 converting the files. They fail almost every time lately. I am not sure why! I used to have a lot of success with the program but something about the conversion process has been giving me trouble. This is the latest log for one that I had issues with…I did omit the title of the movie from the log though.

that’s a very outdated version, here’s the version bug history: Version history for VSO ConvertXtoDVD

Unfortunately, you didn’t wipe out all your tracks. This is a downloaded movie, from a torrent group, and not a legal copy. Therefore, I am going to close the thread.

By the way, there is a free, and excellent alternative to CovertX, called AVStoDVD. Check it out over at videohelp.com.
