I opened the inspector and dragged an AAC file from iTunes onto the square in to audio section.  The music played OK in iTunes but when I pushed the preview button to preview menu I did not hear the music.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Was the track purchased from iTune and is DRM protected?


    Make sure you have the volume in the Menu Info window turned on.  Also try removing the track and then add it back.


    A last suggestion is to use an AIFF format verson instead of ACC.

    Try this basic troubleshooting fix:


    1 - delete the IDVD preference file,, that resides in your

    User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.


    2 - delete IDVD'S cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your

    User/Home/Library/Caches/ folder. 




    3 - launch IDVD and try again.


    NOTE: In Lion and Mountain Lion the Home/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.
