    I have a homebrew DVD that will not play on iDVD, but will play on my cheapo Toshiba consumer box. Is there hope of getting it to play on my laptop?

    iDVD is a DVD authoring program - not a DVD player. Try using Apple's DVD Player.

    How exactly did you make the DVDs? Some set-top DVD players will play non-standard DVDs but Apple's DVD player expects a standard, MPEG2-based DVD.

    I'm not sure how they were made. Is there any software I can use to get them to play in my MacBook Pro?

    I can't even copy the DVD with Toast - I/O error.
