editing dvd volume

I created a DVD volume on my hard drive, but when I tried to edit the DVD Volume (just to make sure that I could), I got an error message "Cannot open this volume for editing because it is not an OpenDVD-compliant disc."

found this on another website:
OpenDVD is a revolutionary technology that makes DVD discs dynamic and changeable. Until now, DVD-video has been a static medium; once the DVD content on a disc was finalized, making even minor modifications was a major task that required the reconstruction of the entire disc from the original source files. The OpenDVD format changes all that by incorporating a special file in the DVD-ROM "zone" of a DVD disc that contains all the information needed to open a disc as a project file in any OpenDVD-compliant application, to work with all of the disc's existing contents, and to update the project with new content, menus, and more extensive interactivity. OpenDVD-compliant discs may be revised without reference to any original source materials making every DVD a living archive of the original video project, substantially saving hard drive space, archiving media costs, and hours of time. OpenDVD technology maintains the full feature-set of the DVD-Video format, and complete compatibility with recordable/rewritable DVD and CD media. OpenDVDs are viewable in all standard DVD playback settings, from set-top players to computer-hosted DVD drives.

Anybody know why I'm having trouble? I sent an email to Sonic (makers of DVDit), but they don't always respond.

Did you create an OpenDVD? Which version of DVDit are you using?

Sonic responded to my email, indicating that I needed to create the DVD in the OpenDVD format - there's a checkbox at the bottom of the screen on DVDit 6.1

So I created a DVD like that, but still can't open it to edit. I got this error message: runtime error! program c:\program files~\DVDit Pro 6.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.


I sent Sonic another email and I'll let you know what they say.
