I think you need to tell us more. Besides the output for what does and doesn't work, you should also tell us what software you are using (which Stata, which version of xtivreg2, etc.).
See the FAQs, http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#advice, for guidance on how to ask questions on Statalist.
