Thank you for the reply. Just as a precaution I took my computer to Apple today just to make sure nothing was wrong with the burner itself, and it was determined the burner was fine, and it was suggested that I reinstall idvd.......so I have.
I asked the tech why when using 'toast' to burn the dvd's some of them would play on a tv's dvd player and some would not?? He said because toast burns so fast that it doesn't burn as well.......making it harder for some players to read the dvd.
This is my dilemma ...... when I first put these little movies together in imovie a year ago, I was planning on just having them viewed from a website so I saved them as quicktime movies for web streaming. Then I changed my mine and decided to burn them and sell them that way, I left the movies the way they were. Everything was fine up until a few weeks ago.
When my idvd starting acting up, I switched to the toast program to see what that was like. I still had all my movies saved in there raw state (from imovie) so I put them all through toast and saved them as disc images. Then I got rid of the ones I had saved as quicktime movies.......stupid me!
OK so now I'm being told that toast doesn't burn as well, and I want to be sure to have a good product, so do I go back to burning through idvd? And is there a way to do that with the movies the way they are now? Or do I have to start with the raw format again and put them all back into quicktime movies? The quality (viewing wise) of the movies are so much better (in my opinion) when burned through toast, than when they're a quicktime movie.
Any advice on whats best to do here..........please. Would switching to Verbatim really solve the fast burn issue with toast? I don't have money to experiment with.
