I just got a MacBook and am trying to turn some old miniDV tapes into DVD's. I used iMovie to get the movie off of my miniDV camcorder with a firewire cable. Then I used iMovie to do a little editing and clicked Share>iDVD. It transferred the movie to iDVD without any trouble, it had the chapters and I added a slideshow. When I burned the final iDVD project to disk, the audio during the movie is gone. The songs I added to the menus and the slideshow are fine, but there is no sound during the movie that came from iMovie. What am I doing wrong?

I don't know if this makes a differences or not, but I don't export/share my movie. I just open up iDVD an import the move from iMovie. I just locate the iMovie project file and it reads it in. As for extracting the sound, I don't think you need too.

Also I assume that when you share/export the movie you hear the sound in the quicktime movie file, when you play it?

Well the dvd wouldnt even play on my tv dvd player but that could be just that my dvd player has a lot of problems so im not concerned about that. But the dvd is lacking the movie audio when i play it on the computer in 'dvd player' and when I burned the project to a disk image it had the same problem.
