Is there a way to read DVD-R media on a mac?* Specifically with a recently purchased movie from Amazon that they elected to provide in DVD-R format. An external drive connected to a MacBook refuses to recognize this disc, unlike any other DVD, which is fine. The fine print on the packaging of this DVD-R disc says it should play fine with a 'play only' drive, and maybe not otherwise. In looking, it appears there are a number of discussions and various problems people have had with DVD-R media, or maybe DVD+R, or some variation thereof, on the mac. But in this instance, my complaint specifically with DVD-R. But my question: does anybody know of a way to circumvent their bad idea, and actually recognize and play such a disc? * Closest, and best informed, forum I can think of for this question. But if another possibly better, please mention it.
