    Burning DVDs
    Hi Everyone,

    I am a teacher and made a movie on iMovie of all of the pictures and videos I have of my students this year. I wanted to burn them each a copy of the movie to DVD. I transferred the file from iMovie to iDVD and followed the instructions to burn it. It appeared to burn it and when I put it in my regular DVD player it looked OK. I started to play it and 3 minutes and 44 seconds in it froze. I tried to skip past it and nothing worked. I restarted it and went to scene selection and picked a scene further along in the movie and it froze right as it opened up the scene. I need help to have this done as soon as possible to give the DVDs or CDs to my students before the school year ends. When I went to the Apple Store for them to check out the burner they said it was fine and that it wouldn't burn stuff because some of the music I was trying to burn isn't from iTunes. Anyone who can help please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Some DVD players are more sensitive to writable media than others. If you're using DVD-R media, I would recommend trying DVD+R and vice versa. Also, the quality of the media itself can produce drastically different results. I highly recommend TDK or Imation media if you have a choice.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thank you. I didn't know there were different types of writeable DVDs. I will try the DVD+R since I have the DVD-R.
