So I recently got my 17" C2D MBP (my first Mac, so forgive any n00bish questions I ask), and just for kicks I tried out a DVD on it and, as expected, it worked fine. However, tonight I installed Mac the Ripper and Handbrake so I can rip DVD's onto my iPod, and when I put a DVD in it couldn't be read. Mac the Ripper wouldn't detect it, and DVD Player said the format was unrecognized or unreadable, something along those lines. I looked into it a little and someone on another forum said he had the same problem after upgrading to 10.4.8. I thought that perhaps there was something about Mac the Ripper and 10.4.8 that was making the DVD drive not work, so I really quick uninstalled Mac the Ripper and restarted, and lo and behold the DVD drive worked fine. Has anyone else experienced this? For all I know there might be some system preference I'm not seeing that would solve the problem, but I'm not too sure. Any help would be great.
