    I'm trying to make a disk in iDVD taking video from iMovie 9. No matter what I do the disk skips the opening menu and begins auto-play. It isn't looping because after one pass it goes back to what should be the Main Menu.

    I've gone through the help screens and tried to un-do what it seems I ought to have done to make this happen on purpose.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    I just found something on the Apple forums. I am trying it now.

    "I figured this one out!

    When you are in iDVD, click on the DVD map (the little icon that looks like a flow chart).

    Then, notice that the video on the far left is in a spot reserved for content that will play automatically. Drag and drop that video off the screen, and the menu should be the first thing to come up."

    Thanks so much for that one. iDVD was driving me insane creating a DVD that completely skips the menu.

    omg i have been driving myself crazy with this stupid program and this totally worked for me!! just wanted to add in that to get the dvd or slideshow after the menu, drag the file on top of the menu square, it will then add another frame to the flowchart.
