Just a guess here.
Do you have blank media in the drive?

With my first attempt at mytharchive I forgot to insert a blank first and 
received similar errors at the same point in the process.
I can't remember if mine were the same though.

I am trying to archive some shows to DVD.  When I run Mytharchive, I keep 
getting the following error:

Finished  dvdauthor
