View Full Version : DVD Player & External Superdrive

Aug 5, 2012, 02:37 PM
I upgraded to Mountain Lion last week and this afternoon was the first time I wanted to watch a DVD. Problem is I have an SSD installed and the stock HD in place of the SuperDrive.

I had no problem with Lion and these instructions (http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20100208120847220) to get DVD Player to work with the external drive, but it no longer works.

The same instructions to get the Eject key to function (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=15406750#post15406750) properly still work fine.

I've tried searching for an updated answer, but all I get returned is directions on how to burn Mountain Lion to a DVD...not what I need.

Anyone figure it out yet? And yes, I could use VLC...I just don't want to if I don't have to.

Just ran through the directions again and it appears to be working. Not sure if I did something wrong the first 2 times or if it is hit and miss.

Either way I am going to say that posting the question solved the problem because the internet is a powerful beast.
