    I made a dvd on iDVD on my macbook but my macbook can't burn discs, my windows laptop can though, is there a way I can burn the project to a disc on the windows? Like a way I can convert it or something?

    Can you export it from iDVD as an image?

    No, like an .iso ... hold on ... I'll check.

    thanks :) and a .iso would play on a dvd player?

    Go to File > Save as Disk Image ...

    Then you should be able to burn that file as a DVD on a PC.

    You'll have to use something like Nero or Roxio to burn the image file as a DVD on the PC.

    I tried it but roxio doesn't have an option for video?

    You're not trying to burn video, you want to burn an image.

    and it'll still play like a regular dvd?

    Yes, because the image is formatted by iDVD as a video DVD.

    could you maybe take some caps going through the process? I'd really appreciate it because I need this done by tomorrow morning and I'm a total newbie with all of this

    I don't have Roxio, or any other Windows burning software, so I cannot help you there, maybe someone else will come along and help.

    EDIT: Try this software, it seems straightforward ... choose the img file, click burn.
