I'm trying to burn a DVD of a project I made in iMovie 09.  It's a long 3 hrs 12 minutes. I tried to "share it with media browser" and "share with iDVD" and other options, but while waiting the estimated 9 hours for this to happen, usually an hour into trying to complete this task, iMovie crashes.  This always, always happens.  When I see comments on the crash, it gets a really long error message.  I really want to share this video with friends. What should I do? Help!

    I would suggest dividing it into shorter movies. You can do this by selecting your Project in the Project Library and clicking FILE/DUPLICATE PROJECT. Do this 3 times. Keep one copy as is. Name the other copies part 1, part 2, part 3, etc.  Then edit part 1 and delete everything but the first hour. See if it will share to Media Browser. If not you may need to shorten it some more.

    Lather rinse and repeat.
