I was sharing my project to IDVD and sometime during the hour process, I got the error message -2125. What does that mean?

    Error -2125


    OK Error code - 2125 usually indicates that the movie is to large.


    It use to pop up when going to iDVD !


    iDVD - DO NOT CARE ABOUT Gbs at all. I got movies on 500Mb that do not fit and 50Gb that fits nicely.


    iDVD - ONLY CARES ABOUT - Duration. Duration is Movie time + MENU TIME. Choice of

    menu and animation of this can take lot's of "DURATION" 15 minutes or even more.


    Choice of encoding method and use of SL or DL DVDs determine the DVD limit.


    iDVD 08 & 09 & 11 has three levels of qualities.

    iDVD 6 has the two last ones

    • Professional Quality (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - BEST

    • Best Performances (movies + menus less than 60 min.) - High quality on final DVD

    • High Quality (in iDVD08 or 09) / Best Quality (in iDVD6) (movies + menus up to 120 min.) - slightly lower quality than above


    DL DVDs can store about double of these times.


    ALTERNATIVE - The Error Code can indicate that free space on Start-up (BOOT) hard disk is

    less than 25Gb (my minimum)

    If you are getting OSStatus error -2125, I've seen this caused by the computer display sleep settings.
    Try changing the sleep settings to never and see if you are able to export.
