IDVD 4.01 is not working under MAcOSX10.5.8

December 2016




Issue


I've recently upgraded to OSX.5 and since then iDVD 4.0.1 is not working.
  • Error message:
    • "Can not open this version of the application with this version of Mac OSX"
  • So I downloaded the necessary updates: iDVD401Update.dmg and then iDVD501Update.dmg iDVD_604.dmg.
  • When iDVD401Update launches, I get the message:
    • "iDVD 4.0.1 Update can not be installed on this machine.iDVD 4.0 is not found in / Applications."
  • Upon using iDVD501Update,I'm getting a similar error message.
  • Is there any solution to correctly install IDVD

Solution


I suggest you read the recommendations for Apple Leopard.
  • Under Leopard, there's no way to switch from iDVD4 to iDVD 6.
  • You can't update your iDVD4 to version 5 or 6 via free upgrades (5.0.1 or 6.0.1 or 6.0.4): they are valid only if you previously purchased and installed iDVD5 or iDVD6.


Thanks to Ritchi for this tip!
