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?
