Hey there,

So i re-formatted my iBook (it had a fair bit of crap on it and generally needed a "spring clean").

I re-installed iLife 05 using the install DVD and have found that iDVD has not installed with it, it says that it is on the DVD because it is a part of iLife etc...

Is it possible that the installation knew that it was installing on a system that does not have a DVD-RW Drive (iBook G4) and did not install it to save disk space?

The bummer is that i need that program as im gonna be attempting some VHS to Digital conversions soon using a USB DVD-RW drive.

any suggestions on how i could possibly get iDVD back on my system would be great,

Regards,

Chris. :mac:

If you go to options when installing you can select what applications you want to install. Turns out iDVD was'nt checked in my case.
