    THIS PROJECT IS DUE AND NEEDS TO BE FINISHED! Please help me


    IDVD VERSION: 7.1.1
    ENCODING: Best performance
    VIDEO MODE: NTSC

    IMOVIE VERSION: 9.0.2


    Hey there

    I spent TONS of time creating a bunch of videos on IMOVIE, and i imported all of them to IDVD

    There are 11 videos on the project, which adds up to 39 minutes of video and 2.16gb of space

    Each video has its own submenu

    I am using Maxwell dvd-r 4.7gb 16x discs

    But when it is in the stage in which it renders the minus, it will go for about 20 minutes, and then it will "Unexpectedly quit" when it is rendering or encoding about 6 of the menus out of 13

    WHAT DO I DO!! I worked so hard on this and need this to work


    I know that the dvds worked because i tested one with just 1 video on it and it worked perfectly, so is it maybe that there are so many videos on it?

    IDK what to do... I really need help and cant have this project go to waste

    Thanks for your help in advance

    A lot of people have complained about -R dvd not recording properly. Even though one recorded, I'd buy some disks that are +R or +RW.

    Thanks for the reply !

    I just did a test, I went to my project, and deleted most of the submenus and videos.

    There was 13, and i deleted until there was only 6 left.

    And it burned the dvd without crashing....

    So i dont know what the problem is, is 13 videos and submenus to much?

    Its only 39 minutes and 2.15gb

    With a message like "unexpectedly quit", that is a software bug. You might try upgrading to the next version. I see you are running 7.1.1; I have 7.1.2, which I think is the latest.

    No update shows for me

    well when i check for updates for IDVD it tells me there is one available.... and then when I go to view the update it is not there :S

    But I dont believe that the update will solve this problem
