Hi -- I have a new iMac that did not include iDVD as apple no longer includes this in the iLife package.  I have imported a movie into iMove but I see no option to burn this movie onto a dvd disk.  I'm running iMovie '11 v 9.0.4


   The format of the movie imported is .m4v.  Am I missing something?

    I am having  the exact same issue. Is there a place I could possibly download iDVD? maybe a fix so i can burn it to a DVD. I think apple should have kept the program.

    You will need DVD software either iDVD or a 3rd party app.

    Two ways to go.

    Approach the Apple store where you bought your iMac and ask them to give you a copy of the iLife 11 disc.

    Tell them you need iDVD. Many others have reported that Apple will come to the party.

    Otherwise you will need to buy an iLife 11 disc which contains iDVD and install it on your computer.

    You can source these discs on eBay, Amazon or Apple stores.

    Another way is to buy 3rd party DVD burning software such as Roxio.

    Best, Z.
