Hi I wonder if anyone can help. Am pulling my hair out here. Have been making dvds on idvd for a while now from quicktime movies exported from FCp. For the past 2 days it keeps encoding the dvd and the just near the end keeps giving me multiplexor error and is not burning the dvd. I have read a few suggestions. Brought the writing speed to x4, put in a dvd that is a slower speed. Re exported the film, redone the chapters, deletes chache from the library. Redone the whole idvd project and deleted encoded assets. Still hasnt worked. Can any one help me please????

Two thoughts:

1. iDVD errors often stem from not having vast amounts of free space available on the boot drive. I would look there first, make sure you had at least 20GB free.

2. IIRC (haven't had to do this for a while), you can create a disc image of the finished movie rather than going directly to burn. This cuts down on the amount of temp space needed and seems to work well for a lot of people, since they can easily make multiple burns once they've got the disc image (using something like Toast or Disk Utility). You might try that and see if you have better luck.

Hi Chas_m
Thanks for that, however Im not sure what more I can delete from my HD , I have 11GB free space. MY Data 1 and Data 2 have lots of free space, how can i set my idvd to use temp files in data1 or data2? Also I need to have menus and music, its a wedding film so wont be able to burn in toast or disk utility.I dont know how to use Dvd Studio pro, but better do a crash course i guess, used to use Encore, but now work on Mac. Cheers

You're going to keep running into the same issue -- even using other programs -- until you clear more than 11GB off your boot drive. You can store your projects on another drive, no problem, but iDVD and many other programs still uses the boot drive for temp space and there's no way to change that.

What is the total capacity of the hard drive, and what is taking up so much space? If you're not sure, Grand Perspective can help.
