looking for a simple answer,

Having trouble buffering. I need to buffer some houses by 120m. I am using an aerial photo to digitze the house footprints. I have tried 2 ways. The first I have simply created a new shapefile and then created the digitized footprints within the shapefile. Now when I go to buffer it by the 120 meters I get an error saying "Parameters are not valid" and "Dataset House does not exist or is not supported". The second try I created a feature class within a geodatabase and then digitized the footprints into the feature class but got the same error when I went to buffer. I'm not sure why this is happening because I have done this many times before without error. Any help would be appreciated.
