NB: First mac...When I first put a DVD into my mac (DVD and mac both from Australia) I was asked to set my region code - fair enough. Then, I inserted another dvd, from Australia again. I had to reset my region code. I was alarmed to find that I could only set my region code 5 times...I know of alternatives such as VLC that ignore region coding, but none of these offer the tight integration that Apple's DVD player does.A quick google search also revealed the possibilities of installing a region-free drive, and using a utility called RegionX, which resets OSX's region change counter (only with region-free drives...). Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of extra optical drive bays, as with the Mac Pro...
I just inserted a DVD into my mac mini for the very first time. It says I get to change the region five times (or ten, I dont remember), but my question is if it is possible to make the mac mini permanently region free, so it can read any DVD at any given time
We have a Dual 867MHz G4 MDD (combo drive) running OSX 10.2.8. We're in the UK, which is Region 2 for DVD's.Somehow (probably by accidentally playing a Region 1 disc) the drive is stuck on region 1, and refuses to be changed to region 2.When I click on "Set region now", I get the attached error message. When I click on OK, the region 2 DVD gets ejected.How can I set the G4 so as it will play region 2 DVD's again?
I'm looking for a DVD software player that plays DVD's from any region on my iMac, which is running Leopard OSX. From everything I've read, the VLC software should enable me to do this - but I've downloaded it and it doesn't! I've disabled the DVD Player that comes with the iMac and changed the settings so that the VLC software is what launches when a DVD loaded and although it'll see and run Region 1 DVD's fine, it won't pick up on, say, a Region 2 DVD. Does anyone know why this is? Or what I'm missing? I'm from England. now living in the States, so have a lot of R2 DVD's that I really need to be able to play on my iMac.
I am using MTR r14d and I can rip Blades of Glory but the main title does not play and crashes Apple DVD Player and VLC. Any help or an update to MTR could be helpful. I just got MTR so I am still learning it. Is there a way to check for updates?
I have a question about how time machine deals with programs. I am rethinking my backup solution because my 17MBP has had its HDD replaced three times. I have been running winclone for my windows partition and it is simply amazing. I was wondering if I back up from time machine, do all of my programs fall back into place perfectly with serial codes, etc. maintained? I ask because I am in the process of choosing the automated TM backups, or just doing CC clones myself because of how simple it is to restore a backup from a clone.
I have a friend who wants me to create a DVD using pictures from a project in iMovie 09. I am in region one. Can I change the region to four before I burn a DVD in iDVD 09? If so, I then want to change it back to region one.

Superdrive recognizes all disks, even movies. DVD player is set to open when a movie is inserted so everything works up till that point. The movie never actually loads and when I click play the windows reads "Supported disc not available". I use iSkysoft DVD Copy Pro to back up my DVD media. When I attempted to do this yesterday DVD copy pro would not load the movie. I used VCL and the movie played fine then tried DVD Copy Pro and it loaded the disc. But DVD Player still doesn't load the movie. I booted in Win 7 and Win media player played the DVDs fine.So far I have:
• Tried several DVD media and all read fine but DVD player does not load movies. Note, I have only inserted US region DVD
• Repaired permissions
Repairing permissions for “Lion” Permissions differ on “Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Frameworks/iPodUpdater.framework/iPodUpdater” ; should be lrwxr-xr-x ; they are -rwxr-xr-x .
I recently purchased a Mac Book Pro. I have had a PC for years. I've discovered that Apple doesn't allow flash player and I have membership in two greeting card websites. Now that I've already paid a yearly membership in both, I'm out of the money and I can't send cards.
I know my coding is perfect, I used to work on the pc with it. Now moving to a Mac... I'm having such difficulty its starting to frustrate me. I've googled ways to solve it and they all say change the rich text and so on so forth. I've done that yet no change has occured for me. When I bought this, I asked if I could do my codes on it and the guy said yes, that I could do it straight from my textedit.

When I am using programs like 'Finder' and I'm trying to select different options, for some reason the words such as, 'Arrange by', 'Date created' etc have all changed to number and letter codes, I don't know how I've done this or how to change it back. They all still work if you select them, I just can't read what I'm selecting.
When I turn it on it comes up with the white screen and then the apple logo shows and then the loading symbol comes. The screen then goes blue for about 30 seconds and then the screen goes black. Code starts to come up...Here's some detail on my IMac: 17" 1.83Ghz
So I just recently purchased a Mac mini and I started putting my music all into the computer. I logged into my Apple ID and it works fine, but every time I try to update my apps, I get an error code 5002. I thought to myself, "well, this is a Mac, so I know its not a firewall blocking the internet or anything in particular". So I went ahead and tried updating my iTunes Match account while I Googled for the error code 5002. When I updated iTunes Match, it looked as if it was gathering information when all of a sudden, it stops and gives me an error code -50. It said "Genius results can't be updated right now. An unknown error occured (-50). So then I immediately started to worry. I plugged in my iPhone 4S (for the first time) and decided that once in sync mode, it will just update my apps so I don't have to worry about downloading it on my Mac. Well, that is when I received an error code 1008. It wanted me to authotize my computer and when entered my credentials, it said it couldn't authorize it and when I cancelled the process, it gave me the error code 1008. So... I am stuck in a rut since I've spent almost an entire week trying to figure this out with no solution. I have tried signing out and signing back in and nothing. I also restarted my wireless router and no luck. I can't afford to create a new account since I've always had the same Apple ID and I have a BUNCH of media that I have purchased through iTunes, so creating a new Apple ID is out of the question. I can't sync my iPhone, I can't update iTunes Match, and I can't update my apps. I am currently using the 800 dollar Mac Mini.
I have a Mid 2010 15" Macbook Pro, core i7 processor, 1.5TB HD, and 8GB of Ram
In November it started having problems with a gray screen with folder and question mark. I defragged and re-optimized the volumes of the hard drive and everything was fine. I have tried reinstalling both ram chips twice. It worked fine for a few weeks and then I started getting beeps and error codes. I can startup fine but after using for a minute or two the screen freezes and three beeps start. Othertimes a panic code will come up too.
I've attached the panic codes in images.
Error Code – panic cpu 2 caller 0xffffff000b2dca29
***Are the Ram chips bad? Or is there an issue with the Logic Board
Is there a piece of software out there that can allow me to find out the key codes of keys that aren't normally on a keyboard. Or a way to figure them out?Or even better, would be a piece of software that allows me to use my multimedia keys on my macbook. The link below is the keyboard and the buttons I am talking about are the six small, circular ones to the right at the top of the keyboard.
Alright I just picked up a new Macbook Pro from school today, and all my apps keep crashing, Safari, Chrome, System Preferences, you name it..... I've done a bit of search on the two codes I'm seeing and guess it might be the NuRam (8gb) I just put into it. Just wondering if there is anyway I can test the ram before I call them up? Just as a heads up these are the codes I'm seeing: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS
