    My first suggestion would be to look on the Apple Support website for any PC compatibility settings to use with iDVD. My second suggestion is to check if your DVDs use QuickTime or other Apple components. To do this, install QuickTime on a test PC and try using the DVD again. If it now works, you know QuickTime was the cause/solution. Otherwise, I would post on Apple's discussion forums if no one here can help you further.

    Works fine for me!

    I've burned about a dozen DVD's with iDVD 4, and have played them back in a wide variety of decks, PC laptops and desktops, and of course my G4. Haven't had a hitch. Sometimes when starting to play a sequence on my Micron laptop there's a short "hang" while the buffer fills up, but then it plays just fine.

    How old is your PC DVD drive? Is it capable of playing the disc format are you using - (-R, +R, -RW, +RW)?

    I have burned a dozen and more DVDs. No problems at all.
