Ok. iDVD is not starting up when I click it or try to open a past project. I can't locate my iLife CD, so for now, reinstall is out of the question. Any suggestion of what could be going wrong or what I could do to fix this problem? Thanks

Start up the Console application in the Utilities folder and then start up iDVD. Look for error messages in the Console. You might try the old standbys of fixing permissions and deleting the iDVD preference file.

There were several errors in console, but mostly the following phrases were used:

-COULD NOT CREATE PATCH FOR LAYER
-there were a few patches that were "missing"
-and almost every error involved the word "null"

I'll keep trying to mess around with things until I get it right, or fail miserably

Sounds like a good idea. Those errors seem drastic.
