    I constantly get this error message while I'm watching DVD's.

    Translation for the ones who don't understand Dutch:
    "A fatal error has occurred in DVD-player.

    A error has occurred while reading the disc. Possibly the disc is damaged or dirty."

    All the DVD's that I have tested, are clean and undamaged

    Sometimes it appears within the first minute of playing and sometimes it takes 5 minutes to appear.
    On some occasions the movie will continue playing after the error code has appeared but most of the time the screen of the dvd player just goes black.

    I already send it to the repair shop, but they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

    Is there anybody with advice on what to do??

    I think part of the problem is that the words aren't readable. :)

    Kidding!

    But could you translate the whole error message for those of us that don't speak ummm... Dutch I'm guessing?

    Have you tried playing them in a different program? VLC for example?

    Tried that, but that didn't work either. With VLC I don't get an error message, it just stops playing.

    I'd get it checked by Apple. Something like that happened to me and my whole DVD drive needed replacing.

    Definitely a problem with the drive then, take it to the Apple store. :(
