    Whenever I try to burn a DVD with Sonic's MyDVD, I always get this error message:
    operating system error: Gdiplus::Status 0x80040200 -13. I've tried fixing all the vulnerable GDIPlus.dll files, but I still get the error message. I can post a log of GDIScan if needed. I'm assuming this is related to the vulnerability issue with GDIPlus.

    I have no knowledge of the program you mention in your post....however, the error you posted....isn't that related to a "connection" problem ??/

    Are you trying to connect to the internet while burning....or perhaps the program is trying to register itself................just a wild guess.

    I think the only way the vulnerability would affect you is if you had an older version of the program and for some reason a required but vulnerable version of a GDIplus driver had been removed or unregistered.

    Here are 2 links you may find useful - the first is a general insight into the actual vulnerability & how to investigate it:-

    This second is from sonic.com which offers a patch/updated driver for those with older vulnerable versions of Sonics MyDvD:-
