    error -36 is a file system error. http://www.cwu.edu/~lynnl/nvec.html

    I wonder if the file is corrupted. Try burning something you know works and see if it burns correctly.

    I would also run diagnostics on your hard drive. I'm not familiar with macs but I would imagine there has to be something you can run.

    Thanks for the advice mate.

    I woke up this morning after having a sleepless night thinking my MB Pro had packed in.

    I re-recorded to the DVD from my DVD recorder and copied the file back to my laptop - and it worked.

    Really bizarre as I tried twice yesterday.

    I am going to test it for the second time in a short while after ive uploaded this DVD to youtube will let you know how i get on

    -36 is a read/write error; read in most cases.

    It just means that your DVD didn't burn properly the first time, so that file couldn't be read. This happens.

    Awesome!

    I would still run some kind of diagnostics on your hard drive :)

    Yes I'm over the moon.

    Not sure of any diagnostic that I could run are you aware of anything?

    Or can someone please guide me in the right direction?
