    Hello Everyone,
    Last month I got asked to record a family member wedding. I have a Sony Digital Handycam. It uses tapes and not DVDs. So I am editing it on our family's Windows machine (it has a DVD Burner) and my PowerBook G4 has a combo. The Windows software is making me mad. So the problem is I want to use iMovie and put it on a DVD but I can't and I have also lost iDVD in the process also and external drives cost to much. So is there anyway I can edit it in iMovie and take it to the windows machine to burn it?

    You could save it as a video file, transfer it to your PC and then burn it to a DVD.
    Click the iMovie menu-bar item "Share">QuickTime. You'll probable want to choose "Full Quality" from the "Compress move for...", drop down-menu.

    For like $20 you could also yank the DVD burner out of the PC and throw it in an external firewire enclosure, then use iDVD.
