After I've created and burned a DVD with iDVDand then try to play it on my computer is does not play. The computer thinks it's blank and asks what to do. If I select "Open in Finder" it mounts and is titled "Untitled DVD". This may have started after the upgrade to 10.6.3.1.1.

These DVDs will play on other DVD players such my G4, a Dell and my TV DVD player.

Thanks for the help.

    If you haven't already tried, do a PRAM reset:

    It wont hurt anything and has been known to cure strange ills.

    "...It will not startup from a Mac OS 10.5/10.6 Install disk..."

    if it can't read the install disk (DVD) then you have a problem with either the disk or the optical drive. Has nothing to do with being a little bit pregnant. Take it to an Apple store or AASP and have them check out the optical drive.
