Your system should be able to run iDVD with no problems. Are you experiencing a hard crash or some other type of crash? In that your system freezes up or do you get an error when rendering and the renders aborts?

G'day All,

I'm updating this thread for the sake of the frustrated ones following in the future. After a lot of frustration with this, the problem has been found.

It was bad memory. I ran 'memtest' and it found several errors, then I removed the additional 512K card from the non-factory slot and retried the software running successfully on both Panther and Tiger OS's.

Regards Mark
