Hi all,


I've not had this issue before and made lots of DVDs from iMovie to iDVD, but tonight I had problem. In iMovie, all the chapter markers appear to be correctly located. However, when I shared via Media Browser all the chapter markers point to the same chapter in iDVD. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    YES - This is the - iDVD BUG !


    You set it of by

    • creating an iDVD project and import movie etc

    • Find that something is wrong or in need of correction

    • return to movie in iMovie or FinalCut and fix it

    • return to iDVD - and it notice it and as You to - Update or Cancel


    NON Works



    • one can in iDVD - trash assets and re-import movie - Might work - I never use this


    • Start a brand New iDVD project and re-do it. - I always does it this way

    and try to not go back to iMovie or FinalCut if not very very important error.


    Yours Bengt W

    Unbelievable this is a known bug with iMovie/iDVD and it hasn't be fixed.


    It's not unbelieveable because iDVD was discontinued by Apple over a year ago.  That's why the workarounds that Bengt mentioned are offered when someone has the same problem. That's just the nature of the beast as we know it.

    There are no dvd authoring apps out there that can hold a candle to iDVD for ease of use, professonal looking themes and results.  I'd stick with iDVD, the latest version available is 7.1.2. 


    If there comes a time that the OS X system doesn't support iDVD then I'd get an external HD, install a system that supports iDVD, Snow Leopard, Lion or Mt. Lion, and boot into it when you need to use iDVD.
