Its not a disc problem if you tried saving a .dmg file. A second solution would be dont use iMovies 1 step feature. Save the iMovie. Then load up iDVD, select the movie from there, make a menu and click burn or try the disc image. I like to do disc image because it burns very quickly if I have to make another and dont need to use iDVD after that.

Maybe try dropping the movie in iMovie, save and go about it that way. Its obviously not the best way, but it just might get you through

It should not decrease the quality, iMove is capable of HD quality video.

They may be garbage, but I don't think thats the problem as he cant make a disc image either, and that has nothing to do with media whatsoever.

I just never noticed where he tried the disc image thing.. I saw that he tried to make menu's but, never reported back on the disc image. Either way.. it's good to know when the disc fails to burn later.

Sorry to jump in here, but what IS a disk image? I've seen that option in the drag-down, don't know what it means. I'm burning about 30 DVD's for my students as a year-ending gift of the videos we've made together. All's going well so far; I have about 15 burned. Takes a while, though. The first burn was 20 minutes or so, the subsequent ones are 5-7 minutes. Sound right?
Secondly, my GB space on the MBook is weird - dropped from 48 GB to 37 GB. What's chewing up my space?
Thanks. Lots of quality advice here. I always seem to get my questions answered.
