    Then the issue lies in the burn process as you're experiencing.

     

    Are you able to burn data disks to DVD or CD discs OK from the Finder?

    Yes, no problems

    Copy the disk image to another user account on your Mack and try buring it from there.

    OK I'll try that but first I need to ask how to burn a DVD using Disk Utility. When I get to the "Select files to burn" window, do I just select the img file or do I need to add the separate Audio TS and Video TS folders?

    Mount the disk image by double clicking on it.  Then in Disk Utility select the disk image as shown in this screenshot and click on the Burn button:

    HI, OT

    Thank you so much for trying to help us.

    I am using 11.0.6 version of toast titanium. My IDVD is 7.1.2, and my IMovie is 8.0.6

    This is the steps I have tried. I hooded up my camcorder got the movie clip I needed, made my IMovie, I have tried both ways just sharing to IDVD. and share to media browser and selected medium. In IDVD I have made projects and tried to burn it, and it goes to the last couple mins and spits out the dic and says it is done. but still says there is acouple of mins. left to go. the last time I save as a disk image. It plays just great in the DVD player. I tried to toast it and got those different errors from toast. so I tried to burn it threw Disk Utility and when I press burn the computer just sits there for ever doing nothing and it says waiting for the drive. but I can't hear the drive trying to do anything.

    Hey, thank you for all your help It finally worked. I took my project and saved it as a disk image, double clicked it and opened it up and just took the VIDEO_TS and dragged it alone to the toast. it works great.  Thanx OT!!!!

    Thanks Old Toad,

     

    That seems to have finally cracked it. The resulting DVD plays perfectly in my mac but the sound has one or two small glitches when played in my DVD player. I'll invest in some Taiyo Yuden discs and see if that makes a difference.

    Thanks again

    Rob

    What brand disc did you use and what speed did you burn at?

    I used Verbatim and burnt at 2x, which was the slowest that Disk Utility would allow

    I doubt goint to Yaiyo Yuden will make any difference. 

     

    What format is the music used in the project?  Those in the know will conver to aiff and use that format when having problems.

     

    If you do change formats and redo the movie in iMovie you should start over with a new project.  iDVD doesn't play well with reedited movie files.

     

    I'd try the disk on another DVD player before reburning or redoing the project.
