I am trying to create a multiple ring buffer for roads over an 18-state region. Every time I attempt to execute this process, it fails and gives the following error message:

Executing: MultipleRingBuffer study_area_roads C:\Users\siu850727638\Documents\GIS_files\tiger_data\study_area_roads\study_area_roadsMRB.shp 0.25;0.5 Kilometers distance ALL FULL
Start Time: Mon Apr 23 01:16:54 2012
Running script MultipleRingBuffer...
ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
Failed to execute (Buffer).

Completed script MultipleRingBuffer...
Failed to execute (MultipleRingBuffer).
Failed at Mon Apr 23 02:03:25 2012 (Elapsed Time: 46 minutes 31 seconds)

I have attached a picture of the error box and area I'm working with too. Any ideas of what's going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
