When you post a question, please post the version of the software you are using.
iMovie HD creates .DV files as I recall, so those likely need to be converted to the equivalent AVI file.
iMovie 08 places the files into an event folder. I'm assuming a regular mini DV format will be imported as a .DV file also. For HD, iM08 converts the content to a .MOV file in the Apple Intermediate Codec format.
The location of the iM08 events is in your home folder in "Movies/iMovie Events/<eventname>". Ignore the subfolders within them and copy the content to a DVD.
I would try this on a small scale first so you can learn what conversion techniques you may have to use. Also, a single video file maybe bigger than what can fit onto one DVD, so you have an issue there. I think Toast can help there by splitting the file across multiple DVDs.
As for the PC. You need know what formats can be handled in the software on that box. Don't expect an answer here as this is a Mac site. Sure, you might get lucky.
