Resolved Question:

I am using iDVD 7.1 (1145) on my iMac (OSX 10.6.5 / 8GB). I can start iDVD, create a new project and select a theme, but as soon as I click the media button in iDVD the program quits. Nothing else appears to be affected. The same version of iDVD runs just fine on my MacBook Pro.

Welcome to, I would be happy to help!

The Mac Daddy :

Make sure iDVD is shutdown.

Go into your User folder (sometimes known as a Home folder, its where your Pictures, Music and Documents folders are kept).

Once there go into Library>Preferences and locate the files

Drag them to your trash.

Finally go back into your user folder and go into Library>Caches
Once in that folder erase everything inside it. Highlight everything and drag it to the trash. Don't be alarmed at the amount of files, you are not losing any valuable info!

Restart your computer and load up iDVD. Finger's crossed it should now work!

Let me know how you get on.
