Too soon!

Well, if you read my previous post I spoke about how I had just finished this DVD for my friend Charlotte... well, I had (on my computer). Today I have been trying to burn it to a DVD. Here is the story:

My first try was a big bust. I got frustrated and went to lunch with a friend (which was a great time!) On the way back from lunch I ran into Matt and Erin Lavin (wonderful people, who read my blog and who are very helpful and knowledgeable). They took some time out of their day to come over and help me out. THANK YOU GUYS!!!!

Our second attempt was a bust... not as bad, but only worked on one program on Matt's laptop, not on our DVD player...

Our third attempt was, well a half bust... doesn't work in our DVD player (this could be becuase we have had it for a long time) or some other reason... so, I tried it on my old lap top after the Lavin's left and ... GOOD NEWS!! It worked, BUT: No sound :(

I'm not sure where to go from here because I don't have any more blank DVD's and I have to go to work in a half an hour: The party is tomorrow... any thoughts? Shannon? Daniel? Jonathan?

well, traci. I'm glad you asked.

[I was going to try to type up some witty remark about uploading the boot drive to the flux capasitor ...yada yada yada, but I figure that won't help.]

This is me just saying I hope you get it worked out.

Shannon? Daniel? Jonathan?

I've got a whole stack of blank DVDs. Maybe I could get your MacBook somehow and give it a shot. DVD burning can be a painstaking thing unfortunately.

Mark one strike for Apple on not making it work well enough.

I know we have talked..but if Matt can come over tonight daniel can give it a try..unless he has already spoke with Jonathan! I am sure the two of them can work it for you. You have put too much time into this DVD to not get it to work!

Thanks to all my friends who are still working on this for me!
