    making A DVd Auto-Start in iDVD/ iMovie
    Does anyone know if there is a way to have a DVD start automatically that was made in iDVD & iMovie. This is to eliminate the need to set the DVD player to repeate. Thanks

    Looking at my powerbook now. There are seven button at the bottom of the iDVD window. Select the button called map. You should see a map of your layout. In the first position you should see, the following:

    Drag the content here to automatically play when the disc is inserted.

    Once you bring up the iDVD application, you show see the main window. At the bottom of the main window there should be three square buttons and four round buttons. They are labeled as follows:

    Customize
    Folder
    Slideshow
    Motion
    Map
    Preview
    Burn

    The Map button is the second round button on the bottom right side.

    I looked under the iDVD help and found the following:

    Looping movies and slideshows

    Instead of returning to the menu after playback, you can set slideshows
    or movies to "loop," or repeat from the beginning. When a slideshow
    finishes, it starts over with the first slide of the slideshow. When a
    movie finishes, it loops to the first scene of the movie.

    If there is background audio for the slideshow, the audio restarts from
    the beginning when the first slide appears.

    You can loop any movie or slideshow. Looping is turned on automatically
    in a drop zone.

    To turn on looping for a movie or a slideshow in the main iDVD window,
    select the movie or slideshow button on the DVD menu. Choose Advanced >
    Loop Movie or Loop Slideshow. To turn off looping, choose Advanced >
    Loop Movie or Loop Slideshow again.

    To turn on looping for a movie or a slideshow (including autoplay
    movies and slideshows) in map view, click Map. Select the movie or
    slideshow icon and choose Advanced > Loop Movie or Loop Slideshow. To
    turn off looping, choose Advanced > Loop Movie or Loop Slideshow again.
    Looping autoplay movies can be useful for creating self-playing
    presentations, such as kiosks.

    To turn on looping for a slideshow in the slideshow editor,
    double-click the slideshow button in the menu to open the slideshow
    editor. Select the checkbox labeled "Loop slideshow." To turn off
    looping, click the checkbox to deselect it.

    When looping is turned on for a selected movie or slideshow, a
    checkmark appears next to the Loop Movie or Loop Slideshow command in
    the Advanced menu, and a small gray icon appears in the lower-right
    corner of the movie or slideshow icon in map view.

    To exit from looping when viewing the DVD, click the Menu button or the
    Title button on the DVD remote control. The Menu button brings you back
    to the previous menu, and the Title button brings you back to the main
    menu.

    How can I loop a few movies together, not just one, so that they autoplay one after the other without returning to the main menu.
