Internal Muxer Error

This seems to be quite a generic error in DVD SP, but hoping someone could shed some light on possible causes.

I have a 60min DVD with two tracks - a main film and a trailer - both pre-encoded in Compressor to Best Quality DVD MPEG2 and Dolby Digital Professional 2.0 audio. There is one menu with simple buttons to both tracks.

When I build the project I get the following log and Compiler error:

I'm running the latest Final Cut Studio (DVD SP 4.2.1, Compressor 3.0.3) with latest OS X 10.5.4 on a Macbook Pro 17" C2D 2.5Ghz/4GB/200GB.

Any help much appreciated,

The internal muxer error also happened to me a few times.
9 out of 10 times something went wrong prior to the building process which causes DVDSP to crash.
Even though the export from FCP and the m2v file created by Compressor didn't cause a problem at that point, it may cause the "internal muxer error" by DVDSP in the end.

You can look at the particular VOB (visually!) to find out at which point the process stopped.
Compare this point with your original FCP footage file, i.e. the one which you've used to be encoded by Compressor.
Most likely you will find a frame (or a few frames) that looks screwed up.

Remove those, and re-encode the footage by Compressor again.
You should be fine.
