Yes You can
• trash iDVD pref file - and Repair Permissions
BUT first I would try - Just to find out if trashing the pref file will help
- Start a new User Account
- log into this
- now test if iDVD runns OK
IF it does then 99% it's the pref file that got corrupted.
• Delete iDVD pref. file - or rather start a new user/account - log into this and re-try
iDVD pref. file resides.
Mac Hard Disk (start-up HD)/Users/"Your account"/Library/Preferences
and is named.
While iDVD is NOT RUNNING - move this file out to desk-top.
Now restart iDVD.
If You run Mac OS X.7 or more - then the Library in the User-account folder is invisibly and need to be set to be viewable. IT IS NOT in the Library on Root level (when opening MacintoshHD - first window = root level)
( It can be done like this: Open Terminal, then enter: chflags nohidden ~/Library
Press return, then restart, and it will always be visible until the next major update, when you do the same thing again. )
• Free space on internal (start-up) hard disk if it is less than 10Gb should rather have 25Gb
• Disconnect all external hard disks and try - FireWire, USB/2, AirPort or Net-work connected.
To work OK I prefer FireWire AND it must be Mac OS Extended formatted - UNIX/DOS/FAT32/Mac OS Exchange - WILL NOT DO for video - neither for iMovie or FinalCut or iDVD any version ! This also includes any USB-memory sticks.
• Hard disk is untidy.
- Repair Permissions,
- Repair Hard disk (Apple’s Disk Utilities application)
(this last one and You must first start Mac from DVD or external hard disk)
Yours Bengt W
