I've read numerous posts here saying that its possible to use AVI files in iDVD to make a DVD, but I can't figure out how to do it. I have a series of AVI files that I want to burn to a DVD that will work on any DVD player but iDVD won't even let me preview them (I just get a blank black screen)...
I currently have the 3 Panther install .dmg files on my PC hard drive.
I want to burn them on to disk using Nero on my PC so I can boot up my PowerG4 and erase/partition my hard drive and replace my current useless OS X.1.5
I have tried changing the name to ISO and burning which works BUT when i insert the disk into my mac, the install file has changed from and application to a package which will not open or but from restart!
My entire iTunes library is made of AAC files. The problem is that now I need to burn an MP3 CD and iTunes gives me the advice that can't burn the MP3 CD because there is no file in MP3 format. Pretty annoying.
When burning an standard CD, it automatically converts to burn, but not with MP3 CDs!
So, is there any software that does this? I don't want to convert everything and consume my disc space to then put the files on trash manually.
I just got my first mac and I am after some advice on which cd/dvd copying/burning software is the best. I have been given a copy of Roxio toast 7 and I am less than impressed, not yet managed to copy a decent audio disc. I used Nero when I was on my PC
What video format is best when using the "dvd video from video-TS" option in Toast 7.0.2? My goal is to burn a video onto a dvd and then watch it on any tv. So far, I've tried the .mpg and mpeg4 video formats. I find that the video quality with .mpg is poor with a jittery picture when watching it on tv via a dvd disk. The video itself plays fine on the computer, and the dvd-r disks that I use are of high quality. Comparatively, Toast did not accept the mpeg4 format when dragging this video into the "dvd video from video-TS" window.
I just purchased Toast 10 Titanium Pro with the hopes of being able to burn blu-ray DVDs using my MBP which I purchased last December (2008) with a CD/DVD burner: MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868.
Do I need to purchase a special blu-ray drive (internal or external) to do this? I was told by my Apple rep that my dvd burner was fine and that I needed to use Final Cut Pro. I read that Toast 10 Titanium Pro was also compatible to make blu-ray DVDs.
I'm actually not even sure where to post this. I just attempted to burn an iTunes playlist to CD using my MacBook Pro. However, when we attempted to import the cd to my Niece's windows computer the CD title as well as each song were titled "we suck". This is very odd because the titles are correct when viewing the CD using my MacBook. Has anyone ever seen this before? Could this be a virus or something?
I've got a .avi file that I want to burn to DVD to play on my DVD player (Philips 5960). The Philips can play .avi files from a USB flash drive but they tend to stutter during action sequences. Do I need to convert the file to another format? What software (preferably free) is best for burning DVDs in Leopard 10.5.8?
I just finished an iDVD project and saved it with the default file extension of .dvdproj.
I want to send this to someone with a Windows PC for them to view, but I do not want to burn it onto a disc because I need to send it overseas and it would take a considerably long time.
Is there any way I can convert the iDVD project to another file extension so I can email it to this person? Or, if I go back into the project is there a way to just save it under a more common file extension?
I followed the directions on this website:[IRL] It didn't play in my DVD player because they say to burn it as a data disc. I dont know that if I used the Video TS option that subtitles will still work.
I film plays and put them on to dvds, well when I burn them as it is burning it slowly takes up memory. Does any one no how to get that space back? I do a lot of plays and it seems that it has taken quite a bit of space!
So i didnt really know where else to ask but my lightscribe software is not buring discs correctly under snow leopard. Im currently using the lacie disc labeler. I wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing the same problem or knows of any other software to try other than disclabel which is working somewhat but only allows me to burn a label the size of half the cd.
I have a 700Mb movie that I want to burn to a DVD to be played in a DVD player. So, I opened iDVD and imported it but it says the file it too big for a dvd!? iDVD says I need over 5Gb's of free space to burn but there is only 4.7gb's.
I'm new to iMac, with a brand new 21.5" and Snow Leopard OS, current version of iDVD. I saved a slide show (approx 240 pics, with audio tracks ripped from CD) from "Photo to Movie 4.2.7" twice, once as a DV movie, again as a Quicktime movie...both around 3.5 GB. In both instances, after dragging the the movies into iDVD and setting up, the resulting movie plays on the iMac, using iDVD preview or Quicktime player, but when I burn on a DVD, the movie "freezes" at approx. the midpoint..that is, the DVD continues to play but the image freezes on the last picture from the movie that burned successfully. There is no music transition at that point, so that is not the issue, and there is no file size warning in iDVD.
As many know, burning a dvd on a mac and playing it back on a dvd player dosen't work. You have to convert it to a different codec. My question is, what methods and apps do others here use to do so. I have several conversion tools and a Phillips dvd player.
