However, the .dvdproj fle isn't really a fle, even though it looks like a single icon on your desktop. It's actually a package--a disguised Mac OS X folder--that contains many subfolders and fles. To peek inside, follow these steps: 1.QuitiDVD. Never mess with your project fles when iDVD is running. 2.Control-click the project fle. From the shortcut menu, choose Show Package Contents. If you have a two-button mouse, you can right-click instead. Either way, you've now opened that "fle" into a folder window. 3.OpentheContentsResourcesfolder. You're in.
