tried your suggestion and came up with a new error here is my input:

@homestudio:~/Desktop$ dvdauthor -t -o TheLordoftheRingstheTwoTowers -c 0,11:30
LOTR_2Towers_1.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_2.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_3.mpg
-c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_4.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_5.mpg -c 0,11:30
LOTR_2Towers_6.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_7.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_8 -c
0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_9.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_10.mpg -c 0,11:30
LOTR_2Towers_11.mpg -c 0,11:30 LOTR_2Towers_12.mpg -c 0,11:30
LOTR_2Towers_13.mpg

the output:
WARN: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...
WARN: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...
WARN: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...
WARN: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...
WARN: Skipping sector, waiting for first VOBU...
ERR:  SCR moves backwards, remultiplex input.

when I check the folder created by dvdauthor there is a file called VTS_01_1.vob
but it is an empty file

thanks
Todd
