hey everyone

i have a macbook pro, i bought it in 2007

i am trying to burn a slideshow using iDVD, everything is perfect, and it looks like all is well

then it gets to the "multiplexing and burning" stage, and it says 4 minutes left, but it ejects prematurely! the ejected disc is read as blank.

everything is original, why is this happening? i've tried it a few times, with new dvds (fujifilm DVD -R) but it gets ejected blank at the multiplexing and burning stage

please all help is appreciated
QUOTE Thanks

Instead of using "Burn DVD..." from the File menu, choose "Save As Disk Image...". This will go through the whole process of creating a proper DVD disc image without the burning stage. If that works, then you can use "Disk Utility.app" in the Applications/Utilties folder to try to copy the image to a real DVD.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

I had the exact same problem, after troubleshooting for hours with Applecare and wasting countless DVDs it had to be replaced. (They had someone come out the very next day )
