    hi all - i have a dvd that was burned on a PC i need to import on my mac. it actually works fine in my cheapo home dvd player, but when i insert it into my super or combo drive (i have both), i get this message:

    "You have inserted a disc containing no volumes that Mac OS X can read - to continue with disc inserted"

    and i can either "IGNORE" or "EJECT"

    i've repaired disk permissions and researched all i can on this, and haven't come up with any real answers. any help would be great. here's what i'm running:

    G4 dual 1.25GHz
    OSX 10.2.8

    clearly the dvd (a sony dvd+r) works as i can watch it fine on my home system - it's something with osx that's messing me up. :confused:

    thanks everyone!

    Drives in computers can test for errors before mounting drives (like read-in write-out) and this may be why the OS id refusing to comply - there may be an error on the disc that the DVD player simply ignores.
    I have had problems like this before, and haven't managed to find a way around it.
    If you can, try it on someone else's Mac and see if the same thing happens.
