I'm new to this forum, I joined because I have a question about iMovie 9 and iDVD 9. I am converting my mom's old 8mm home movies to video and I added background music to the video by dragging and dropping mp3s from iTunes into iMovie. I have all the music chosen and when I go to export to iDVD to burn it to a DVD my music doesn't play. How can I get this working? iDVD seemed to have burn two DVDs on me now, the first one I did over night, woke up with the disc ejected. Inserted another disc, now I have two DVDs with no music. I'm irritated, because I don't know what went wrong. Can any of you guys help?
QUOTE Thanks

Does the music play when you preview your project in iDVD? If it does, try saving from iDVD as a disc image, then burn that to a dvd using Disk Utility.
