    I have an eMac G4, and I have two movies I made myself on this mac, and burnt the dvds on it and everything. It has never had a problem reading dvds, now it will play any regular movie dvds on it, but when I put the ones in that i made, the drive will just eject it right out without anything popping up! In wanting to make copies of these dvd so this is a problem! Any ideas?

    Could they be scratched at all? Possibly you had left them out somewhere and they got damaged?

    Okay, well try resetting your PRAM. I guess there's a possibility some of the deeper optical drive settings have been corrupted. Good luck. :)
