...such as parenthesis, quotation marks, etc. I.e. characters outside of the Windows convention....

If you have any of these "bad characters" in the File Names of any items in your BC list, they will wreak havoc upon your BC session, as I discovered last Friday.

I had a fairly long list, and some of the items contained "illegal characters" in the file name column. The result was numerous "error writing file" messages, problems with machine control, video being randomly deselected in various list items, only 3 of 10 items being captured, etc. Chaos reigned supreme for several hours until I rectified my mistake.

Just a friendly warning.
