Can it been this Message You've got ?
Error -108 memFullErr Ran out of memory [not enough room in heap zone]
Turn off - TimeMachine usually works - re-try.
(the Application down in the Dock - not the Device)

No this is the message that I'm getting from iDVD, whether I'm trying to save the file or burn a disk: Not enough free disk space for encoding the remaining assets.
Time Machine is not plugged in at this time and I've restarted my computer many times.

Try this basic troubleshooting fix:
1 - delete the IDVD preference file, com.apple.iDVD.plist, that resides in your
User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
2 - delete IDVD'S cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
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.

Okay I figured it out. While my computer hard drive, the disk, and the destination drive where I was planning to save the new file all had plenty of space, the drive where the iDVD project resided did not. When I moved it to a different drive it worked.
I have to say though, the quality of the disk burning through iDVD is really bad. Again, it's a small file and there's plenty of room on the DVD, yet it looks much worse than it looks viewed as a preview in iDVD. I've done several workarounds that I found online, including creating the slideshow in iMovie, and it's only midly better. But that's another topic I suppose.
Thanks for your thoughts and input.

The experienced users here strongly recommend having a minimum of 20 GB free space on the boot driver to accomodate the tempoary files and the memeory swap files that iDVD creates. For general use 10 GB free space is recommended.
