Okay I am new to this forum and the whole mac lap top world, altho I am familiar with the mac and yada yada. Okay I'm very much into editing video and movies and I was making a idvd project. When I went to burn the project it burned fine (the process anyways) but when I went to play the dvd on my dvd player it didnt read it and then I put the dvd back in my mac and it didnt play it either.

I used a dvd+R, 4.7 gb and I know my superdrive can burn anything (-R, -RW, +R, +R rw, etc using a mac book pro with the os x tiger) so I'm wondering if thats the problem, but I have no clue why it burns and then the DVD is virtually unreadible and I've put it in my pc dvd player, 2 dvd players in my house, and the mac laptop one.

I even burned a disc image to see if that helped and nothing.

Can anyone help me, or should I just use dvd-Rs instead of the dvd+Rs???
QUOTE Thanks

I had a similar issue with iDVD (iMovie finished DVDs dont play audio) and the only way I got my movie to work was to use Toast to burn it instead of iDVD. I think there is some issue with iDVD on Intel Macs but nobody can seem to figure it out (called Apple 3 times).

so, I would suggest (if you made the movie in iMovie) to share it to Quicktime then just burn it using third party software like Toast. best of luck
