FWIW, though I cannot tell for sure whether this is the source of your 
problems, note that, in general, it is a very bad idea to use single 
capital letters as names of variables because many of them have already 
been attributed some predefined meanings (every Mathematica built-in 
command begins with a capital letter). For instance, D is the 
differential operator, E is the base for natural logarithms. You should 
use longer names and/or start them with lowercase letters.
