• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

Toast/MacOSX problem



I am using a G3 800MHZ iBook with 128 MB Ram to burn a video DVD. I am using Toast 6 Titanium (6.0.3) and a LaCie d2 DVD -/+ drive. The drive unit in the LaCie case is a Pioneer.
Problem 1
Toast's help file says that I can drag an iMovie project file into the video window - Toast tells me that it is an unrecognizable file format.
Problem 2
I exported the iMovie project to Quicktime and burned it to SVCD - result - OK. I started a new DVD project and added the same file and a couple of folders of photos for slide shows. Toast goes through the process of encoding and then spits out this error message:

"Could not record the disc because of a Mac OS error. Result code = -8970"

I could not find this error code on either Roxio's site or Apple's.

Any ideas?
