Try to split the process into two parts
• Encoding - "Save as a DiskImage"
• Burning - by using Disk Util tool to burn the DiskImage onto a DVD
This to isolate when the problem occurs.

Try this basic troubleshooting fix :
1 - delete the IDVD preference file, com.apple.iDVD.plist, that resides in your
2 - delete IDVD'S cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
Click to view full size
3 - launch IDVD and try again.

OK, I Saved as A DiskImage
Burned it on to a DVD with Disk Utility
I put it back in the DVD drive to play and get "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer"

Man thats funny
I can keep from laughter.
Then encoding process most certainly OK
• Did You set down burn speed to x2 ? - I do
• Brand of DVD used - Memorex a known problem maker in reg to VIDEO-DVDs - I never use any Cheap brand - only Verbatim
• DVD type used - +/-RW will give problems - DVD+R only plays on modern DVD-players - so I only use DVD-R
Anything of these that make sense to You ?
BTW - the iMovie pref files - are in Your User-Account folder / Library / Preferences. AND It's hidden from MS OS X.7 and onwards.
• On top Menu Row - go to GO then down to Library - and You are in the right one.

I use JVC Taiyo Yuden 16X DVD-R's, and have not had issues before.
I am able to open the DVD in VLC and it works fine
DVD Player wont open it
The DVD shows up in finder with data
I don't remember how to show hidden files, can you fill in the blanks?

Taiyo Yuden - are supposed to be top of quality - Can not get them here in Ultima Thule (Sweden) so I'm lost to Verbatim.
• On top Menu Row - go to GO then down to Library / Preferences - and You are in the right one.
And now You are in the right Library - Here try to find and move to Desktop/Finder.
While iMovie is NOT RUNNING - move this/these file/s out on to desk-top. (not all are there - but move what You find).
Now restart iMovie.
If You run Mac OS X.7 or more - then the Library in the User-account folder is invisibly and need to be set to be viewable. IT IS NOT in the Library on Root level (when opening MacintoshHD - first window = root level)
(Hidden files ----> It can be done like this: Open Terminal, then enter: chflags nohidden ~/Library
Press return, then restart, and it will always be visible until the next major update, when you do the same thing again. )

In Lion and Mountain Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.
