Please - DO not spoil any DVD disks by doing like this instead.
• in iDVD - when all looks OK
- Save as a DiskImage
- open this and test it with DVD-player tool
Burn this image - by using Disk Util tool
I secure from start - IMPORTANT
• a minimum of 25Gb free space on the Start-Up (Mac OS) Hard Disk - must be here - other hard disks of NO interest as this space can not be addressed elswhere
• I use only Verbatim
• I use DVD-R
• I set down burn speed to x4 or less
This way usually works for me and I've lost very few DVDs

Were you able to create a disk image of your project as Bengt suggested? If so and it played satisfactory with DVD Player then the problem lies with the burn process.
If you were unable tio create a disk image then the problem lies in the encoding process and could be due to any number of issues. Can you elaborate on what you experienced when saving as a disk image?

I saved as a Disk Image, but when I went to open in DVD player, the file would not open. I then tried to burn to a DVD but this wouldn't work.
So ... I then deleted the iDVD application, as suggested by another, and reinstalled with the iLife disk.
I tried to burn a DVD and struck the same problem. iDVD runs all the way the very end, then ejects the DVD prior to completing the task.
One further problem now. iPhoto is damaged. The warning message states the application may be damaged or incomplete. This Apple PC has worked fine up until recently, now its starting to act like a Windows PC.
Any suggestions. Thanks.
