Hi Folks,

Had to buy a new macbook to replace my two year old model which was stolen recently. New machine is the standard macbook with the following spec:
Hardware Overview:

Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook6,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.26 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MB61.00C8.B00
SMC Version (system): 1.51f53
Serial Number (system): WQ949ETY8PW
Hardware UUID: 29738BA7-61ED-5A8E-823A-410C76B2B527
Sudden Motion Sensor:
State: Enabled



Having a little difficulty with the new machine - even though it's specs are equal to ( and better in terms of drive capacity ) than my last machine I find its performance sluggish and am skeptical about the 2gig of RAM which comes as standard now. I've seen more of the spinning beach ball in the last week than I did with my old machine in six months.

However, that's a seperate issue; I'm having difficulty with iDVD crashing when I try to load up an .avi to burn as a DVD. The file in question is a Blu-Ray copy of a movie ( legit ) which is 2.6gig in size ( .mkv in format)

Having had previous problems with Magic iDVD I got a workaround from the forum here which was to convert .avi or other format files to .mov using Divx Doctor and load these. This worked pretty well in the past.

When I do this the file is still over two gigs in size.
With the new machine I find when I drop the file into iDVD and try to burn I get a message telling me 'the project exceeds the maximum content duration...' and to change the encoder settings in 'Project info'. When I did this in the past and selected 'High Quality' things normally went off without a hitch.

Now the spinning beach ball of death appears for a while and then the application crashes with the following details in the report.... ( can anyone help??):

Hi folks,
Posted this already in 'Applications and Games' but got no response. Am hoping this forum might be more appropriate...
