    Help! I have an iDVD project I am burning onto DVD-R.

    So far I have successfully burned 2 but have had 3 failures. Each time it failed it said "there was a problem buring multiplexing/burning"

    Is my superdrive at fault or the DVDs?

    Also, dont know if its related but when the DVD starts up spinning it makes a very loud "moo" - is this normal?

    Thanks

    I've had problems too.
    Try slowing the burn down.
    I've also used iDVD to make an image file, then use Toast to burn.

    I don't think you can slow iDVD's burn speed down but you can export the file and (if you don't have Toast) burn it in Disk Utility. Alternatively, try a different brand of blank DVD. :)

    Yep - that seems to have worked.

    Burned disk image then used Disk Utility to copy to DVD (at full speed).

    Just seemed to work a lot better than through iDVD... a bug in iDVD perhaps?

    Thanks

    You're right.
    I am used to using Toast.
