    iDVD Crashes every time i Burn
    This may have been covered ad nauseum in a previous threads, but my search did not turn up anything obvioiusly solving my problem so here goes. I am using iDVD 3 for the first time, and I may just be doing something stupid (so please don't hold back on the ridicule and sarcasm if that is the case). I have put together a project in iMovie and when I use it to build a project in iDVD and click 'Burn,' the process starts and within about 3 minutes it crashes. Every time. 3 coasters and counting (one DVD-R was untouched by the process, but the others are coasters). What am I doing wrong here? is this common in v3... am I going to have to pony up and get iLife'05? I'm using good Memorex media. The drive burns Data DVDs very well. My 'puter is well above the sys reqs. for iDVD 3. Is there something I have to do before i click the burn button?

    Help!

    Cool
    Are you running iDVD 3.0.1 and iMovie 3.0.3?

    Cool
    I have not used iDVD 3.0.1. I have worked with iMovie 3.0.3. I did not start burning DVDs until I got iLife '04.

    My guess would be the media that you are using. I know there have been discussions here on the brand of media to use. I have used Apple's version, Fujii, Imation, TDK, and Verbatim. I tend to use either Verbatim or TDK regularly.

    I suggest you try another brand of DVDs.
