Nero 6.6 Ultra transcoding/burn error

I recently purchased Nero 6 Ultra, installed it, went to the website and downloaded and installed the upgrades and patches, but when I tried to burn a DVD for the first time, I received this error message: Unable to prepare data for recording: Failed to get disc content. I've tried burning this same project several times and each time I get the same error at the same place.

It seems to go all the through the ''transcoding'' process of the menus and the file itself, but then it fails, and the above error message pops up before any actual burning begins. I've saved the error log generated each time it fails. It's a long file, so I'll include the part that seems important in this post:
########################################################################### #############
[04:00:43] DVDEngine ERROR
[04:00:43] DVDEngine cause: 3 (invalid_parameter)
[04:00:43] DVDEngine source: _get_PGC_PB_TM
[04:00:43] DVDEngine description: ICellRef refers a cell (VOB_IDN=1, C_IDN=18) which does not exist in
[04:00:43] DVDEngine VTSTT_VOBS#1.
[04:00:43] DVDEngine ########################################################################### #############

It's an .avi file, and I don't have any trouble viewing it in Windows Media Player, and Nero Vision Express doesn't have any trouble making a preview of the file/menus either.

Before I had purchased Nero, I downloaded the trial version of Ulead Movie Factory and didn't have any trouble burning DVDs using that, so I don't think it's the burner (which is a NEC DVD+-RW ND-3450A.)

I'm on a Dell with Windows XP Media Center Edition, a Pentium processor (3.2, I think), an ATI radeon X300 graphics card, and a 250 GB hard drive (with about 110 GB free).

Anyone have any ideas what is going wrong?

Thanks for any help.

if you were using it to burn a copy of a dvd (movie) then you are encountering copyright protection.

It was an .avi file. Doesn't that mean there is no copyright protection? I thought copyrighted files couldn't be made from DVDs to begin with.
