Crashing when reading VR bitrate dvdrw

Have been using DVD FAB Platinum for a while now. Very very good product. The only problem I have is that I record from tv an hour program everyday then transfer to Sony Walkman to watch. It records on a Liteon DVD Recorder on a dvd+rw disc. When I put the disc in, it reads it as VR. My guess is that it’s variable bitrate. DVDFAB reads it fine, but as soon as I click on Ipod it closes the application with no error message. I have a older version that works. It’s ver 4102. This version works fine for the dvd+rw, but if I use a newer version it just crashes. Wonder if anybody has run into this. Not a big deal as I just run 2 versions, but it would be nice to just run one.
