I just recently bought an iMac about 4 months ago and I am having a hard time burning movies that I make on iMovies to a disc or DVD. I cannot find iDVD so I am sure it doesnt come with it, is there another way to burn movies to a disc without having iDVD? Please help.

I also have a GoPro Hero2 camera that I recently put all the pictures and movies from the camera to the iMac. I am wanting to put a couple movies and pictures back on the SD card that is in the GoPro. I have tried the click and drag method, I have also tried to make a seperate folder and Export the video and pictures to the folder, then tried to Export to the GoPro. I have even tried to pull the SD card out of the camera and put it in the card reader on the side of the iMac and all those methods still dont work. If anyone has any pointers on how to do this please let me know. Thanks!!!

I would get a program, such as MagicISO: Movie edition.
Also I would check your drive for corrupt files, maybe iMovie is corrupt, if it is reinstall it with the Applications Update CD that came with your iMac.

Not sure what you mean by corrupt files. I use iMovie regularly and havent had any problems with any part of it. I heard through these forums that I do need to purchase a program such as iLife 11 or the one you mentioned to be able to burn to DVD's since the new iMacs so not come with it for some reason. I was just wandering if anyone has been able to burn movies they have made to a disc using iMovies or something already on the iMac without buying anything new. Thanks

i would get 'Toast' it's dead easy to use.

Also, it surprises me that you don't have iDVD as it came on my iMac as standard and i got the entry level one. Is it second hand? If so are you sure the app hasn't just been deleted? If so just reinstall.

Um... A corrupt file is a file that cannot be used ...
I would use Disc Manager to check your files...

Well, You're right, he should pull out his Applications Install CD, and reinstall iMovie while he's at it.

Yeah I am sure it didnt come with iDVD so it will not let me redownload it. I can buy it but I have also heard it is better to get a disc to download instead of just an app. Anyways, thanks for your help. It is good to have a site to go to for help and tips for new Mac users.

Another thing is that this problem would be in the OS X-Apps & Games, so post there if you're still having problems.

Depending upon when you purchased your Mac it may not have iDVD included. It is not, for example, listed in the built-in applications with the current MacBook Pro line. I don't remember exactly when it was dropped.

I have been looking for an alternative to iDVD recently but some of the possibilities I have seen don't appear to be stable.

Sure came as an Application with a new iMac running OS X.7.4. Sure it is not in the Application Folder?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
