Hi. I accidentally screwed up my iDVD when I tried installing some Tiger features on Leopard. Now iDVD doesn't open. Is there a way I can download a new one (iDVD '08)?

    First try deleting the iDVD preference file, com.apple. iDVD.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder. If that doesn't help you'll have to reinstall iDVD from the disk that it came one. Also you'll need do delete the current application and all files with "iDVD" in the file name that reside in the HD/Library/Receipts folder. Run the installer and install just iDVD and then run the latest updater for iDVD.

    am having same problem. have iDVD software included in installation of new mac so not sure how to re-install just iDVD. haven't tried to open it until recently and warranty finished, so no live help available without cost! none of the support iDVD is helping. don't know if this problem was right from day one or after i installed leopard or what. WHAT THE HECK TO DO???

    Since iLife came pre-installed on your Mac it will be on the system install disk that came with it. You can do a custom install with the disk and select just iDVD or use Pacifist to find, extract and install iDVD.

    Use Pacifist to find, extract and install iPhoto from the disk.
