    When I connect another display to my TiBook, I get this error message.
    Any suggestions?

    when i took my tibook to school to hook it up to a projector to play a DVD for our class towards the end of the year, it spazzed out too. not like that, but the frame rate cut to like one every two seconds, and it just went haywire. i was so embarrassed. we had to bust out a normal DVD player. it's really trashy if you ask me. i think they are abiding by some rule about having software that stops users from like recording stuff straight out of s digital quality feed. were you using your DVI out port or your s-video port?

    The default Apple DVD player was not meant to be played on another monitor, to my knowledge. Try VLC player at http://www.videolan.org/ .

    DVD(OSX) player doesn't like working on "Spanned" Desktops, If requires Mirrored, and even then It only in on the connected screen. A solution is to close the TiBook, use a KB and a Mouse like a desktop and try it that way. DVD Player (OS9) however wants "spanned" desktops, then you have to drag the video window to the desired screen, then make full screen, and it will play on that screen.
