    Disc images
    Helloo,

    I'm making someone a three-disc set of movies, one movie per disc, using iDVD on my boyfriend's MacBook- it doesn't have a Superdrive, so I want to burn it from my PC, so I'm saving it as a disc image and then converting it to an ISO. But I was just a bit confused about the way these disc images work- is the movie itself saved in the image along with the menus and stuff, or do I need to put the videos on my PC too, and if so, how would that work?

    Thanks- sorry if I'm being totally dense...

    Done
    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!

    The disc image should contain the entire content of the disc. So, all you would need to do is create a disc image on the Mac, convert it to ISO and then copy it over to your PC. Once that's done, just open the ISO in your favorite burning application and let it burn.
