    I have created a fantastic iMovie collage of Picture with Music for a friend.

    I have access to a bunch of PC's and I do not want to buy an external DVD for 1 project.

    So... 2 questions....


    1. How do I create a DVD ready image to burn on the Mini so I can copy that to my PC to burn ?

    Make sense.

    Just my luck, 99% of the time I never need a DVD drive, till I helped out :)


    TIA.

    thumb drive? SD card? Plenty of options to transfer over to another machine. Can the PC not make the image? Just copy the files over to the PC? I've never made DVD's of my own, so I can't give any advice on that.

    I apologize, I should have been more clear.

    I know how to transfer file to computers :p

    My issue is iMovie can't build DVD output, at least that I see.

    I can produce a file for iTumes or an iDevice, but not a DVD.

    Sorry. Does Toast make an image that you can save? Either that or go with the idea of trying to find a copy of iDVD.

    DVD/CD Sharing

    This is what you are looking for, with it you can use the DVD drive of another computer (mac or PC) as if it were connected to yours. It does this wirelessly so you will have to be on the same network though.

    I'm guessing iDVD isn't an option for you. Would Burn work? It's free so you might as well give it a shot.
