Lots of things it could be. You might want to go over to the 107 forum, and ask. Look at the Encyclopedia Germanica v107 sticky topic first, to get an idea of terminology, common problems, suggestions, and ideas.

There are a bunch of seriously dedicated nutcases over there that are happy to help out.
