    Hmm...that might indicate that there might be a problem with the iMovie to iDVD share operation. Try using iMovie's "Share to Movie" option. This will give you an mp4/m4v(they are basically the same) movie file.

    I don't see thatanywhere. s it the same as Share > Export to movie? By the way I am at iMovie 9.0.4

    I don't see that. Is it the same as Share > Export movie? I did that and got a Concerts.m4v on the desktop. Is that something I can burn to a DVD? What program should I use for that?

    Thank you

    Yes, it is. Sorry.

    Yes, you can burn it to DVD. Use any of the ones that you now have.

    For iDVD, start a new iDVD Project, then just drag and drop the movie file into the Project window and burn as normal.

    For "Burn", make sure that you choose "Video" in the top line of the window and "DVD-Video" in the drop down menu on the right. Again, drag and drop the movie file into the window. You'll be asked about converting the file. Agree, because that's the way it's done. Video files have to be converted to mpeg for dvds. Then click the Burn button.

    Hope that helps.

    SUCCESS AT LAST. I used the second suggestion (Burn). It converted the file to a .mpg saved on the desktop. When finally burned it played beautiully. Thanx to you and all the other gurus out there

    Glad it's sorted, although the problem isn't solved.

    After making many Projects in iMovie 11, one day it wouldn't Export As Movie any more. It just kept crashing every time I tried. Never did manage to find a fix for it.

    The one suggestion I did not try is to recreate the project from scratch. I will do that for the next project and see what happens. Again thanks for your help

    Hi poppi

    Just two pennies (UK, Sterling) worth....

    I had a similar problem recently and tore my hair out in fistfuls trying to resolve the issue. Eventually, as a last resort, before setting light to my 'puter, I reinstalled iDVD and everything worked. O Joy....!
