Have a new Mac with Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on it that did not come with iDVD installed. Trying to find a DVD burner that will be compatible with my ML version. I called Apple and they no longer supply iDVD discs. Argh. Need suggestions! I have tried wondershare and xilisoft 30 day free trials and neither one is functioning properly!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

If you are still within your 15 day return period.  Call Apple they will sent out iDVD at no charge.  (There are no realistic substitutes.)


Nicely explain that you may return the computer without iDVD. That usually does the trick.  You MUST speak to a senior advisor to get a free copy. The first tier people cannot do it.






If that doesn't work you can purchase iLife 11  (includes iDVD) on disk.


IDVD is a wonderful piece of software and well worth the low cost of $40.
