[QUOTE=philamber;2589014]Does the problem also occur when you use other software?[/QUOTE]
Well i havent tried any other software , i only have the iDVD and MovieHD and i can make the DV in quicktime but it seems the connection between the external lacie burner and the mini mac … the mini mac CD drive doesn’t play DVD’s spits every thing out , so i thought to use the external. I have tried using a different firewire lead … but it has made no difference .
the DVD i want to make is 3.86 GB and i have a DVD disc capable of writting 4.7 GB
thanks so much for trying to help … any other ideas most appreciated.
