So I launched i dvd this morning and it told me it's broken.

See Image (http://www.applecollector.com/temp/idvd.png)

I have not edited that image in any way what so ever, nor have I changed anything in iDVD.
It's kind of humorous no?, ah well looks like it's telling me to do a re-install. :D

Yep, I had this on one of the macs I upgraded to iLife 08. It's something to do with not handling the old themes. Only happened on one of them, the others were fine. I can't remember how it was fixed - I think I tried deleting plists first but in the end had to reinstall idvd??

Bloody weird though - I thought it had been hacked at first!

I'll take your advice and delete the plist files.

Actually, I'm pretty sure regenerating the plists didn't fix it for me. I'm pretty sure I had to reinstall. Is it all your themes or just some of the older ones? Be cause I think the new ones were okay. You can select a check box to reinstall older themes in custom install.

nope i cant select anything to re-install from the DVD, So i'm just going to delete ilife and re-install.
None of my themes work even though some are shown but they cannot be selected.
