Ok now I have a problem now with my PB. I upgraded to Tiger (bought from Apple.) I now can't play DVDs! When I was running Panther I could pop in a DVD and the DVD Player started up. Now with Tiger, I put in a DVD It mounts on the desktop (like any other cd.) I can still burn and read cds, but can't play dvds.

Thanks for your help,
Lewie

So.. you put in a DVD and start the DVD Player.app manually and it doesn't work?

Nope, I can't even find the DVD.app anymore! And even in system prefs. there is a setting that starts dvd player automatically (Panther) when the dvd was inserted. Now In Tiger it is set to ignore and I cant find the app to select.

/Applications/DVD Player.app.

If it's really not there, you should be able to pull it off your Tiger installer DVD without reinstalling by using Pacifist.
