    For some reason my eMac wont play DVDs that ive made on it. It will play regular movie DVDs no problem. But when I put in a DVD i made myself on iDVD it just spins for a sec and spits it back out. They use to play fine before with no problems, but not suddenly none of the DVDs ive made on it will play on it? Any ideas?

    If it's just spitting the DVD back out then it's unable to read the DVD itself. Perhaps your DVD drive is on the way out? If it's possible try a lens cleaner as this may extend it's life a little.

    Also, maybe try burning with a better quality blank DVD. Cheaper DVDs don't last as long. :)
