PayPal "Error Detected"

I have made several carts using eCart and PayPal as my main checkout gateway. The site is live (www.tigerdio.com) and I am getting the following error when I try to checkout.

Error Detected
Your shopping cart is empty

The order is being stored in the database but PayPal seems to not be getting any data. Any ideas?

Thanks

Is there a particular product that caused that error? I just went through the process and got to paypal and it displayed the item in my cart. Maybe a particular item is causing an issue?

the cart information is sent to paypal in hidden form elements.


when i view source of the confimr page, the item name is sent as:
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_1" id="item_name_1" value=""Sunken Road"" />


it looks there are double quotes being forced around the item name when it goes into the cart, those should not be there, it making the name look like an empty value.

on the confirm page, change:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name"?>" />



to:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="<?php echo str_replace("\""""$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name")) ?>" />

Figured out the issue. It was the quotes that were in the product's name that was throwing the error message. Using the code that Jason Byrnes suplied me curred the issue.

Thank you for help
