To answer your question the branch is referred to in the Tortoise Dialog as file:///I:/subversion/vip/branches/IPTVHAL_010201_1

You didn't ask for it, but here is my full configuration (I should have supplied that on the first email)

TortoiseSVN 1.3.3, Build 6219 - 32 Bit
Subversion 1.3.1,
apr 0.9.7
apr-iconv 0.9.7
apr-utils 0.9.7
berkeley db 4.3.28
neon 0.25.4
OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
zlib 1.2.3

My understanding is that you are suggesting that I upgrade to the latest client. I know for certain that will not work with base Subversion 1.3.1 (we inadvertently have done that before). If upgrading everything to the latest will solve this problem so be it, we can start down that path, but I am not sure that is what is causing the current problem. We are currently able to svn commit to our Trunk code and branches that were created previously with no issue. We are just not able to svn commit to this new branch (have tried creating it in numerous ways, all exhibit the same issue).

Are you accessing your repository via file:/// ?
If yes, then you must first use the svnadmin tool (part of the official svn client) and dump your repository, then load it with the new version (i.e., you must upgrade your repository to the latest format that svn clients 1.5 use).
