I was attempting to create a new DVD but did not have my Superdriver plugged in.  When I plugged it in, iDVD did not recognize it so I relaunched the program.  The program refused to reopen and is now no longer responding from launch.  A window does not open but the icon does appear in my dashboard with the note that it is not responding if you option click on it.  I would appreciate it if anyone has troubleshooting I could follow to get it back up and running.

    Try this basic troubleshooting fix :

     

    1 - delete the IDVD preference file, com.apple.iDVD.plist, that resides in your

    User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.

     

    2 - delete IDVD'S cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your

    User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iDVD folder.

    3 - launch IDVD and try again.

     

    NOTE: In Lion and Mountain Lion the Home/Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.
