    What software did you use to burn the DVD?

    Sorry, Lori.

    You've burned a "data" DVD and it won't play in other DVD devices.

    iDVD has been discontinued by Apple and is probably not installed on your machine.

    http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html Free software that can create a proper DVD.

    http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/toast/titanium/overview.html more expensive software that can also create DVD's.

    Sorry you had to learn this hard way. Apple has moved away from DVD formats.

    did you find a solution?  I'm in the same boat.  No luck in successfully burning a 'DVD' and watching it on a stand alone DVD player.  Please let me know if you found a solution.

    Technology is moving so quickly and before we know it DVDs will soon be a part of the past.

     

    Apple is the largest media company in the world. They sell nothing on disk. It is to their financial advantage to have the physical possession of movies go away.  ( but I fail to see how it benefits the consumer. )

     

    Blu-ray is way better than streaming. I'm a photographer. I care about image quality. Call me old-fashioned.

     

    There is good news coming!

     

    Technology experts are working on a movie storage system where YOU have physical possession of the movie.

     

    This system stores the movie digitally on an optical disk system that will not be dependent upon a congested, complicated, and fragile network.

     

    Because all of the data is stored only a few feet from your television, all the bottlenecks are removed.  Performance and reliability are virtually flawless.

     

    Further, the system will not utilize any form of security codes, authentications, or passwords. Once the optical disc is purchased it can be moved around freely at will, and can even be lent or given to friends and neighbors with zero hassles.

    Really? And what is this new system called?  I know that this is an old post but I am still using a 6 year old iMac with iDVD and iMovieHD (6). Aside from file size and quality issues (my camcorder is even older) it still clunks along.  Will the new system bypass Blue Ray?
