IDVD: Problems with burned DVD.

I created a pretty hefty little project with iMovie and iDVD: a 30 minute movie with three menus including the root title menu, chapter selection, and a photo slideshow.

During the burning, there were no problems: no error messages, it seemed to take an appropriate amount of time, came out okay, and everything seemed good!

However, when I tried to play the DVD in my Mac, it had trouble. The DVD player kept giving me a "skipping over damaged area" message. When I tried to play it in my friend's PC, it made it to the title menu but wouldn't play the actual movie.

I tried burning a new DVD several more times and finally got a version where everything works except the chapter selection menu, which won't let me select a chapter and play from there. I don't think this is acceptable from a brand new Macbook Pro. It should be able to handle burning a DVD project of this caliber!

What do you think my problem is?

    Try burning the DVD at the slowest possible speed. Also, if your burner supports it, burn it to DVD+R media; not -R or RW. DVD players can be pretty picky about the movies that they play. Let me know if this works....thanks.

Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.

How to save a movie from iDVD to anything other than .dvdproj


Hi KirkIt's because iDVD is designed purely to make DVDs - nothing else. iMovie is used to make the movies and you should be able to play those on a PC without issue. Alternatively, choose Burn DVD from the file menu and then play the resulting dvd on the PCV.

I made a movie on my mac laptop with Imovie and I can't seem to burn it to a dvr correctly?


OK ..basically you need to get it from iMovie to IDVD. There you can burn a DVD. What I would do is this.
(You need the application iDVD on your laptop to do this). Open iMovie HD(my Great Movie).The word File is no the top. Scroll down to Export..chose iDVD on the right and click Share. It will launch the iDVD application. Then when you have put what you want in iDVD you can burn a DVD with one click of the icon. Here is a very excellent tutorial on how to use iDVD and burn to a DVD http://www.apple.com/ilife/idvd/ another way to do this is to export the movie to Quicktime rather than iDVD save it as a file..then go to iDVD. Open that and import that quicktime file and then burn the DVD. I am not sure which is better. I would try both.

IDVD movie opens before menu when played on DVD player


In your iDVD project go into the DVD Map menu.
(Little flow chart like icon in the bottom-middle of the iDVD menu screen.)

Look for the very first icon in the map. (Upper left)
This has a small DVD symbol and a play icon on it.
Delete this icon.
Re-burn your DVD.
The menu should be shown first now when you play the DVD.
