Now, if by repair it with the RTV tools, you meant to rtvconvert/evtdump/rtvedit the file, I've now done that (it didn't remove anything other than the first .8 seconds or so) and it still won't load into womble. . .
I have been able to load it using my dvd authoring software and could edit it using that, but it's rather difficult to manipulate the video using that clunky editor and then it would re-encode it for the next few days (or some undetermined length of time).
Anyone else have a suggestion (or did I not follow the previous suggestion properly)?
I've experienced some similar quirkyness with Womble before and rather than trying to open the file for editing I just ran it through the Stream Converter in Womble (under the tools menu), basically just demuxed and remuxed the streams without changing anything and the new file opened fine. There's a lot of possible reasons why you might be experiencing the problems that you are, so this tactic might or might not do you any good. Keep the original copy of the file around just in case.
(PS: might also want to run it through the RTV tools again, or even have the RTVtools output demuxed streams and then remux with womble or TMPGEnc)
I've seen this too. Strange when it happens and unsure what I did to fix it the few times I encountered it. I believe #1 is always try restarting your PC, power off and all for a few minutes.
Reinstall womble can't hurt, but I don't think it will help as everything is in one file anyway. Maybe it got corrupted, but I suspect odds of that are slim. But, that step can't hurt!
Lastly this is going to sound strange. But look at free space on your boot drive (partition) and the drive where the file is located. Sometimes there was something funky with these conditions, but I can't remember exactly what happened if you had low free disk space.
