Has anyone upgraded to iDVD 5 with Combo Drive & external disc burner

I have an iMac G5 with a combo drive. I have purchased a Lacie d2 drive to burn slide shows from iDVD. The Mac recognizes the Lacie on the firewire input but says under system utilities "Disc burning: not supported". I would upgrade to iDVD 5 if this will support an external disc burner. Any suggestions.

Apple pays for permission to burn DVD's (something about MPEG2). However, they don't pay for each copy of iDVD sold. They pay for each DVD burner sold. Thus, they don't allow burning to external DVD burners...officially. Under the File menu, choose "Save As Disk Image". Once you have the disk image, you can use the resulting Video TS and Audio TS to burn a DVD using Toast. A version of Toast or some other burning software should be included with your external burner. I hope this helps.

  • Has anyone had any problems with fusion drive?  If so, what kind of problems, and were they easily corrected?

    I'm looking at buying a new computer.  Has anyone had any problems with fusion drive on iMac?  If so, what kind of problems, and were they easily corrected?

    NOPE!
    I better not!  My iMac is only a week old.  And, if I did have any problems with it, I would let Apple deal w/it!  I do not troubleshoot when I'm under warranty.  That's Apple job!

  • Has anyone used an app with the Maverick software to burn iPhoto slideshows to DVD disks that will play on any DVD player?

    Has anyone used an app with the new Maverick software to burn iphoto slide shows to DVDs that will play on a standard DVD player?  This probably cannot be a demo app in that the amout of photos on the slideshows is large.  
    Thank you,
    Jim

    Export the slideshow from iPhoto, that makes a movie of it.
    Do you want to use this DVD in a domestic DVD player? If so, then the disk will have to be 'authored' to make it the correct form for that. If you have iDVD then that's the app you use. However, iDVD is no longer developed or distributed by Apple. You may be able to get it on an old iLIfe install disk.
    Other options:
    Burn: http://macupdate.com/app/mac/21992/burn

    But there are lots of others too. Search on the App Store or MacUpdate

    Looking at the Yosemite forum, it is obvious that this is a very common issue.  You might want to post in that forum for help and advice.

  • Has anyone else experienced problems with the disc burner/driver software not being found?

    I am trying to burn music onto a disc and it is telling me that the disc burner/driver software has not been found. Has anyone else experienced this with their MacBook Pro?

    SuperDrives wear out - it seems that yours might be on the verge of a mechanical failure. I'd just replace it, buying a new drive from Other World Computing and installing it yourself (because Apple would charge a small fortune).

    No bug I'm using exchange at work I've updated a couple of people here and it's working. 
    Your IT guy can't fix this for you?   This problem usually is due to the exchange server not recogonizing your account.   You have the right server and domain entered?

  • Has anyone upgraded the Ironport ESA to 8.5.6-074 and had the issues of Raid status showing unknown?

    Has anyone upgraded the Ironport ESA to 8.5.6-074 and had the issues of Raid status showing unknown? After we upgraded our appliances we are having issues with our ESA appliances showing the RAID status as unknown. When we reported the issue to CISCO we were updated there were no issues reported at all. Could anyone please confirm if you have experienced the same issue. 

    You should see OPTIMAL - meaning the drives in the C170 are in good health/status:

  • Has anyone had a problem with Draft Emails getting sent with Mac OS 10.8.2? It just happened to me and sent a few drafts out to a potential employer I planned on sending out torrow.

    Has anyone had a problem with Draft Emails getting sent with Mac OS 10.8.2? It just happened to me and sent a few drafts out to a potential employer I planned on sending out tomorrow.

    Hi, one question & one suggestion...
    What possible things are connected at home but not at the store, inlude every cable, etc.
    One way to test is to Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, Test for problem in Safe Mode...
    PS. Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive
    Reboot, test again.
    If it only does it in Regular Boot, then it could be some hardware problem like Video card, (Quartz is turned off in Safe Mode), or Airport, or some USB or Firewire device, or 3rd party add-on, Check System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items window to see if it or something relevant is listed.
    Check the System Preferences>Other Row, for 3rd party Pref Panes.
    Also look in these if they exist, some are invisible...

  • Has anyone else encountered problems with Adobe CMM clobbering Photoshop add-in filters?

    I recently tried to install Adobe CMM, as a pop-up window suggested after I installed Photoshop CS5 on a new computer, running Win7x64 Ultimate. Before trying to install CMM, my Akvis Sketch Plug-In for Photoshop worked fine. Afterwards, Akvis Sketch runs under the filters menu, but will not accept mouse clicks from my Wacom tablet. Prior to Adobe CMM, all was fine. Somehow, the frustrating attempt to use Adobe CMM broke links to Akvis Sketch.
    By the way, Adobe CMM setup tried to run and vanished without a trace - no indication of success or failure. CMM doesn't show on my control panel as installed software, so I can't de-install it.
    I did un-install Akvis Sketch and re-install it. No luck as a filter, nor as a stand-alone program.
    Additional point of interest - a second identical software/hardware workstation continues to run Akvis Sketch just fine because we didn't try installing Adobe CMM on that machine. It certainly looks like CMM is the culprit here.
    Since Akvis Sketch is broken as a stand-alone, I doubt that de-activating, uninstalling and then re-installing, re-activating Photoshop CS5 will help, but it will take a lot of time to recreate actions and re-install other add-ins, plus preferences settings.
    Has anyone else encountered problems with Adobe CMM clobbering Photoshop add-in filters, and have you found a work-around?

    Thanks for your response. Recent evidence points to Wacom's tablet driver, not the plug-in.
    Fact #1 - another identical system with ms mouse worked fine so I swapped out the Wacom tablet and bingo, the Akvis plug-in works again.
    Fact #2 - So does Amazon's Kindle for PC app, which also quit working after running the Adobe CMM setup I'd downloaded.
    Suggestion - since there's a legacy for CS5 users getting the "you should download CMM" pop-up, yet no need to do this, maybe Adobe should remove the CMM download page from its website - or flag this download as unneccessary for photoshop users. All Best, Charles Pierce.

  • Has anyone had this problem with VPN iPad vpn connection could not validate the server certificate

    Has anyone had this problem with IPad 3 after upgrade to IOS 7,
    trying to to connect VPN , but I get this messag, "could not validate the server certificate".
    I am trying to connect to Oracle VPN.

    Has anyone found a solution for this yet? I am still getting the could not validate server certificate error. I have tried importing the entire certificate chain as well as importing each individual cert in the chain. My certificate works perfectly with the cisco vpn on my pc.
    This is my first experience owning an apple product, and I am very disappointed with the customer support that I have received. I tried calling the help line and no one would even attempt to answer my question. I was then told that the Mac "geniuses" wouldn't know either and that I may be able to find an answer on the message boards. So I am reaching out to the community...Has anyone been able to figure out how to resolve this issue or even the specific cause? Any help is appreciated.

    Don't be afraid to bump this topic. There's also an App Store forum where you might repost this question, but give some of these details in your post.  I'd rephrase the topic to something like "Can't use App Store to upgrade." (Instead of can't "open".) Then give the details.
