I have created a 10 minute iMovie and I wish to share it with my family overseas.

In the past, I have created a DVD using iDVD and then posted it. I have tried to do this again but I have been unsuccessful (iDVD seems to be burning the DVD, giving lots of progress messages and ending with a message confirming success, but the DVD is actually blank!). I have tried both DVD-Rs and DVD-RWs and I get the same [no] result).

I talked to an Apple store employee who said that iDVD is no longer supported as it is 'old technology'.

So, my question is: Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to fix my iDVD problem and/or, if not, how else could I share my video with my family overseas.

Technical details:
iMac 2.4GHz Intel Core Duo
Max OSX 10.6.8
iMovie HD 5.0.2 (111)
iDVD 7.1.2 (1158)

QUOTE Thanks

Thanks for that, chas-m.

I downloaded Burn and attempted to burn my DVD. I had the same problem in that Burn went through the motions as if burning successfully - but the end result result was a blank DVD! I am assuming that my iMac DVD drive is not working. This is borne out by the fact that I transferred the file created by Burn from my Mac to my PC, where I successfully burnt my DVD!

The bottom line is that I have isolated the problem - and I have my DVD!

Many thanks
