Thank you Mithi! Worked perfectly.

Now I have to wonder how I messed it up in the first place. 


IIRC "Starts with" is the default option. It also gets reset, I think, when installing a newer version, like v4.0 over v3.7. So it isn't necessarily you...

So who's the oldest grumpiest    IT-person in this thread?

In my early twenties when I was studying physics and IT at university, started using mainframe computers using paper tape and 8 inch floppy disks (mini computers, one interfaced by the legendary —and noisy— Teletype 33) as well as punched cards and a TSO terminal for the mainframe. Had my personal back-up storage on DEC-tape. Programming in Algol60, Fortran, APL, PL/1, Pascal, DEC PDP assembler and not to forget IBM mainframe JCL — byzantine unless you really understood the hardware...
The PC arrived at that time. Started out with a Commodore 64 doing my own word processing (and of course games). Migrated to a proper PC, though not from IBM, OS was DOS, I think it was v3.0. If memory serves me well it relieved me of about 15,000 Dutch guilders, at current (!!) conversion rates 6800 € (±7000 $ or ±6600 £).
Also in my profession as IT consultant, using the first usable (IMHO) PC graphic interface: GEM, using a very good CASE tool which I never saw matched on Windows. 5 inch floppy disk era, no proper alternative. No internet, just Compuserve text based dial-in interface.
Worked for a telco when mobile phones started to be more affordable and common, from 1997 onward. Mind you, the smartphone era was still a decade in the future then.

I know there are still other 'ancient ones' active on this site, but who?

Seems like a proper bug for Invelos to work on.
If you're familiar with programming you may have noticed that when you invoke a change by clicking on OK, Save, or similar changes are immediately carried through in your local database before control is handed back to the user. Since the UPC/EAN is the heart of the identification of a profile, changing the UPC, among others, means also changing the file names of the front and back cover as stored on your PC. When your next action is pasting another cover image it means storing that under the new name. And obviously, the bug is activated somewhere along the route. Could be the old file name still persists somewhere, (re)coding to .jpg as DVDp's cover storage format has a bug related to the id change, etc. etc. Nice one for Ken to puzzle on 

Just my 2 cents.

...backing it up to a flash drive (I guess I could use a NAS drive too?)...


Anything that your old computer can write your backup file to and your new computer can read will do. Whether that's a NAS, cloud storage, a removeable disk (USB/flash/SD card, USB/portable hard disk, ...). Just check the size of the backup file when created to avoid problems...
Though paper tape punch and floppy disks are a bit outdated I'm afraid
