OS X V10.7 Lion :: Apple DVD Player Does Not Recognize DVD Movies

Mar 2, 2012

Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac11,2
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 3.6 GHz
Number of Processors: 1


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 just "upgraded" to Lion and have noticed some annoying quirks. I can no longer zoom in Movies on DVD Player and am stuck watching movies in widescreen.Is there any way to reinstall an older version of DVD Player?Are there any alternate programs to watch DVD's (not converted, full versions) which allow zoom?

Mac Mini :: Get It To Recognize External Blu-ray Player?

Mar 26, 2012

I recently bought my first Mac and I bought an LG CP40 blu ray player to watch and burn DVDs.  I know the player works because the first thing I did was use it to install Office for Mac.  I put the disk in and the install happened automatically and worked fine.  My problem is I can't get the Mac to recognize that there is even an optical drive connected to it so I can't open the contents of disks or watch DVDs.

OS X :: Put Movies From My Computer Onto Dvd / Burn Dvd That Can Play In Dvd Player

May 23, 2009

I just recently got my mac. Its been s struggle but I love it! Few problems though. Firstly, how do I put movies from my computer onto a dvd? Make up a dvd that can play in a dvd player. Its a blu ray player, im not sure if that makes a diff, think I just have to check what types of files it plays and change them accordingly. So how do i burn a movie onto a dvd?

Other question, Im having a problem with my wireless internet. My macbook works fine everywhere else and nobody else i live with have any problems. Just my computer in my house. The internets REALLY slow. I rang NTL and they said its your computer, so rang apple and they did some tests and said its your network so I rang NTL again and they gave me a number for netgear, the people who make the router. They were NO help, you can't call them from a mobile phone and I dont have a housephone. Is there anything I can do?

Id appreciate any help I can get!!

PowerPC :: IBook Won't Recognize DVD Player / But Playing CDs

Jun 6, 2008

Part of my iBook says there is an initialization error when I open up the DVD program, and the other part of it says I have have no drive at all. But I have tried everything that I was told to do. Basically I have a problem with my white iBook Laptop, a G3-4 800 mhz, which runs on OSX-10.14.11, and has 384 sd-ram

It has a DVD application program, but opening it just gives an initialization error. The date on the App is something from earlier this year, so it's not that old. It has the corporate "DVD" player logo. (but it won't open) If I drop down the Apple menu at the top corner, "About this Mac" I see the list, and if I select Burners, it says No Burner Found. If I look for CD or Audio devices, there is nothing like that on the list but i can find the cd drive under ATA drives (it has the HD listed, and then a CD drive). When I open Disk Utility to find out about 'repairing disk permissions' all I see on the left side of the screen are 2 drives: the hard drive and a CD drive (LG Model 8245B), and I cannot select 'repair permissions' or 'verify' because they are in light grey (un-selectable). If I click on 'First Aid" bacically nothing happens. It's sort of like "nothing's broken, nothing to fix."

So I went on to reset the PRAM, as this was the last suggestion
someone gave me.

Some interesting things: The thing plays CD's. It detects a CD drive, like I said. There is no CD/Audio player Application, anywhere (i was looking to see if it was read/write). There is also, buried somewhere, an older Apple DVD application, for an Apple DVD player. It wants to run on OS-9. So I open OS-9, and after OS9 has opened, it tells me that OS-9 doesn't support it.

The DVD application I mentioned earlier (it's about 28 MB) is newer, and runs on OS-X 10.14. (So.. yes, this was an OS-9 computer which got upgraded to OS 10.4.11)

Lastly, it came from a brother in law who is a filmmaker, and I know that he used it for DVD's. I was told i could also burn with it.(it doesn't burn cd's right now) He re-set some names and passwords when he gave it to me; from what I can see, all the 'permissions' are ok, and set to my name. I have his passwords in case I need them.

If the computer has forgotten that it has a DVD drive, then I can't run OS 10 (which is a dvd), if it were to crash. This worries me, since I had to do this with my old Pismo only 2 months after buying it (at least it had a dvd drive!) I lifted the keyboard to see if there was a label on the cd-dvd player.
Nothing. I can't pull it out (like I could in my old Pismo) to examine the underside. How does it come out? (it's a tray-loader)

Before I start trying to remove the drive, just to see what it says...

Is there any program on the iBook which will actually detect, and tell me what hardware I have? I think that the computer still thinks it has the old cd drive in it, even though it was obviously upgraded to a dvd drive. If I could find out the brand I could maybe download some software driver
for it..?

(i am sort of afraid to go poking around the system files if I know that I cannot use the OS- 10 startup disk when it crashes (since it is a dvd)...

So is it beginning to sound like there WAS a dvd drive in there first, which burned out, and was replaced by a cheaper LG (that's Dell) CD-R drive

OS X :: Leopard Wont Recognize DVD Player Running On A 400Mhz G4

Dec 14, 2008

I have a 400Mhz G4 with 1GB of ram running Leopard. Works great except it does not play DVD's. When a DVD is inserted the following Error box is displayed:

"A valid video device could not be found for playback. [-70017]"

In addition, when trying to change screen savers, "Error: Can't load bundle" appears. Does anyone know of a work around for the DVD? Windows Media Player does not work and VLC will play only audio.

QuickTime :: Player Seem To Enlarge Smaller Movies To ~480 Pixels Wide On Playback?

Apr 16, 2012

QuickTime Player (we have version 10.1) seems to play movies at a minimum movie size of 480 pixels wide. Smaller movies (say 80, 200, etc. pixels wide) get enlarged to 480 pixels wide when played, making them blurry. Movie Inspector confirms the original size of these movies (of various formats) and that the current player window size is 480 pixels wide. They can't be viewed any smaller (either by the window resize handle or from the View menu).We frequently make moves from slices through small sub-volumes of 3D reconstructions and it doesn't seem that this latest version of QuickTime Player can be used to view these small-sized movies any longer. Am I missing a preference or checkbox somewhere in QuickTime Player?

Mac Mini :: Apple TV When Playing Movies?

Nov 7, 2008

I always read posts of people who ask whether to get an Apple TV or Mac Mini to use as an entertainment hub. I just got a 2 ghz C2D Mini for free. I was excited because now I can put it in my closet and have it on at all times to stream to my Apple TV (Currently stream from iMac). But then I thought about it, what if I just plug the Mac Mini into the TV directly and play my content directly through it? 1. Apple TV has been great, silent, I don't hear any fans, and plays iTunes bought HD content without any problem. Can the Mac Mini handle this in the same way, and as silently? I plan on using a DVI to HDMI cable. 2. If I do use the Mac Mini, I also plan on getting rid of my DVD player, which is also silent when it plays DVDs. How quiet is the Mac Mini when it plays DVD movies? I don't need it to be silent, but I just don't want to hear it when I'm watching a movie. (I know I can try this myself, but I still haven't gotten the required cables and peripherals to try it now) 3. Based on all of the suggestions people here make when comparing Apple TV to Mac Mini is that the Apple TV is half the price. In my case, I was fortunate to have a Mac Mini land in my hands for free and I plan on either using it as a media streaming hub or plug it directly to replace the Apple TV. In this case, since money isn't an issue, which is a better option?

OS X :: Apple Tv Unable To Play 1080p Movies

Dec 14, 2010

I was wondering if such software exist. I have a mac pro in my home office and would like to also plug a second monitor (HD TV) in the living room. Is there a way for me to see what is showing on the TV? I want to use that instead of streaming to my apple TV in the living room which is unable to play 1080p movies. Of course I don't want to mirror both monitors, I would like to be able to look at my emails in the office while my girlfriend watch a movie.

IMac :: 3.2Ghz Model Won't Recognize Apple Display?

Sep 25, 2010

I just bought a brand new 21.5 inch iMac 3 hours ago and it won't recognize my Apple 24 inch Cinema Display. I was been using the cinema display with my laptop for 20+ months now and it still works with my laptop, but this brand new iMac wont use it as an external monitor. I keep hitting "Detect Displays" but nothing happens. Did all software updates that were available through the Software Update app, restarted, shutdown, unplugged the monitor and plugged back in, nothing is making it work. This is very frustrating for a brand new iMac right out of the box to not work properly.

Applications :: Apple DVD Player Region Codes?

Apr 22, 2009

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...
