I have resolved this problem using nero recode to convert "sony"-DVD in mpeg4 files. So it work correctly with imovie, but you always need a PC to convert file, and the quality is worst that the quality of the original DVD...and it take you a lot of time

Sony and mac do not play nice together! the video was recorded in mpeg 2 and mac likes to see a different file format-sony will work with 08 versions of imovie-try to use moviemaker-free in your menus- in Vista if possible-try to stream disc from camcorder to computer using usb on camcorder-stick w/windows if at all possible-use a pinnicale converter box to convert av output from camcorder to usb-about 50-100.00.

Try burning an iso image file instead from the program, then you can use the built in mac software to burn that disk image file to a disc. Sometimes in video editing there is a problem with the process of compiling the video to a disk. Try a simple very short project with a dvd-rw (reusable) disc to see if it still gives the error.
