Mpg2-MKV to DVD Output produces invalid IFO Files

If i load up a Mpg2 MKV with Chapters done in Videoredo and directly output to a DVD using same chapter lenght ( each 10 mins ) something seems to mess up the IFO.

I can reproduce this loading up the resulting DVD in Videoredo.
Directly get an error " Folder does not contain a valid Ifo File"

MakeMKV ( Freeware ) also errors loading up the DVD then giving an error message

"Calculated BUP offset for VTS #1 does not match one in IFO header.
Title #0 was added (9 cell(s), 1:28:58)"

eDIT: It does play in MPC Home but ~again~ VLC Troubles here with it opening it telling me its an invalid DVD ;)

If you get rid of the chapters is the DVD OK? Just wondering if it's specific to the chapters or if the audio or video is messing it up.

If I have a movie open in VLC and also try to then open the
dvd folder in VRD I get the "invalid IFO file" message.

Maybe VLC is locking the file in some way. If the same DVD folder works fine when it's not open in VLC then it's most likely a VLC problem not a VideoReDo problem.

Yes, no problem with VRD if the movie is not open in VLC (have not tried
other programs to play the movie with)

Just surprised when windows won't let you use a file because something
eise is using it. I understand if you were changing the file in some way but
I've had times I could not even just copy a file because it was "in use".

Windows has different file permissions you have to request when opening the file. VLC could be requesting exclusive rights to the file to prevent it from changing after it's been loaded. That's bad technique, but not uncommon.
