I just got my new 17" G5 iMac today (Rev B), and so far am mostly loving it. However, I've already run into a problem. On my TiBook, with the DVD region set to 1, I could tell OSX to ignore DVDs, put in a non region 1 DVD, and then work with it. (Play it in VLC, rip it in Handbrake, etc.) However, trying to do so on my new iMac gets me nowhere. It isn't an overall DVD problem, it is only with DVDs that aren't the region I currently have set. VLC refuses to do anything when I try to play the DVD, Handbrake says there are no valid tracks to rip, etc. I can't even straight copy over the files from the DVD - the DVD shows up in the Finder, but if I try to drag the folders off to the desktop to copy, I get an error. Has anybody else run into this problem, or has anybody been able to do what I cannot do? If I'm SOL when it comes to DVDs from other regions, I'm going to be very displeased with my new machine.
