    No. iDVD is a DVD authoring program. It takes quicktime files, adds menus and creates a DVD.

    If you're asking if you can make duplicate DVDs from an iDVD project, than the best way is to have iDVD create a disk image. You can then use disk utility to make multiple DVDs.

    Select the CD volume in Disk Utility, then File->New->Disk Image from "your source volume". This will create a file on your Mac, which is a copy of the source DVD, that you can use to burn to another DVD.

    You mean Apple adds and changes features in different versions of its operating system? :eek: FOR SHAME!

    I am fairly sure that the method I've outlined will work in Snow Leopard.
