... I just need another way to get it onto a DVD, it doesn't have to be iDVD. ..
free. freeeeeeee ...
You can still purchase the iLife suite from the Apple Store and get iDVD.
iWeb and iDVD are being discontinued and are not pre-installed on new machines. iLife '11 or '09 have both apps.
I already have iLife '11 and I don't really want to download it again. Is there any other way?
iLife '11 isn't available as a download.
If your machine included the iLife '11 DVD you would be able to install iDVD from it.
By what i said, I mean that when i got my mac, it came loaded with iPhoto, iMovie, and Garageband, but not iDVD and iWeb. I need to take an iMovie and burn it to a DVD, but I don't have iDVD.
This was just to clarify my question!!
As I stated, above, in order to install iDVD and iWeb you'll need to purchase iLife '09 or '11.
Apple has discontinued those two apps and from now on they do not come pre-installed on new machines. They are not available as a download.
I just need another way to get it onto a DVD, it doesn't have to be iDVD. Any suggestions of other apps that might work or other ways to burn?
Make a couple of phone calls.
iDVD is a “Must Have". (Yes, it should be included.)
Call Apple they will sent out iDVD at no charge.
Most people report that by asking here: http://www.apple.com/feedback/idvd.html
or here: http://www.apple.com/contact/
they got a free copy of iDVD.
If that doesn't work you can purchase iLife 11 on disk (don't get the download) for about $39.
iLife ’11 also includes iWeb and iDVD for creating instant websites and burning your own DVDs.
Note: iDVD and iWeb are included in the iLife '11 single-user and family pack box, but they are not included on new Mac computers.
Burn seems to come up with a lot of good reviews. Has anyone used this?
There are no alternatives to iDVD.
I've tried virtually all the programs suggested. None of them come near the power and ease-of-use of iDVD.
IDVD is available directly from Apple or Amazon by purchasing iLife 11 on disk.
If you are still within your 15 day return period, nicely explain to Apple that you will return the computer without iDVD. That usually does the trick for a free copy of iDVD. Be Nice.
