Question about Apple Mac Laptops
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?
I have the same problem ( mac os x brand new) , I try different brand of cds. but nothing seems to work. I use final cut pro then export to quick time movie or quick time movie convertor, then idvd from i dvd to dvd. I try to use dvd pro but nothing seems to work i always get the same message skipping over damage area. from research, people said that they delete their preference and reinstall it it could work i havent done this because i'm afraid to lose all my work

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.
