    iDVD crashes
    G'day All,

    Machine Model: iMac
    CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (3.3)
    Number Of CPUs: 1
    CPU Speed: 1.25 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 256 KB
    Memory: 1 GB
    Bus Speed: 167 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: 4.6.8f4

    Regards Mark

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    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
