DVD Player v5.4 beginning to hang rather than play
The discs are not defective as they play just fine in my ancient iMac and on my blu ray DVD player.
Is it possible to load a fresh copy of just the DVD player or do I need to do a reinstall of the OS?
Thanks for any suggestions sent this way.
In the past one had to drag and drop the movie or slideshow to the first box where it says "drag content here" for it to be an AutoStart Dvd. But the software engineers made a little change where it now at times defaults to an AutoStart Dvd.
Some folks on this forum suspect it's apple's attempt at trying to make iDvd easier to use. But in reality, it's actually making for the reverse scenario since many mac users don't particularly appreciate this added / default feature .
Hope this helps but if not just come on back.

I've used both IDVD 5 and iDVD 6 but the problem continues. DVD's tend to "hang up" or "stick" at multiple scenes when playing on a DVD player. The same problem occurs on all sorts of DVD player of family and friends. This issue does n

The DVD player in my laptop won't play video DVDs. It works okay with data discs, but films etc cause a problem - the drive spins up, and it sounds as though it's trying to read the disc, but not succesfully. Depending on the player depends on what h

For some reason when I launch DVD Player my sound will stop on all other applications. Quitting DVD Player won't fix this either. In iTunes, the song won't even begin playing. I've tried checking Audio MIDI Setup, and for my ouput I'm only allowed to
