    So far the only possibilities that i've found are buying toast for around $100, or buying some generic app for $25; neithe rof which i really want to do. Does anyone know of a free patch/app that will allow me to read this dvd? Ive noticed that roxio has one freely available for windows, but not for mac :mad:

    UDF DVDs are supported I just made 1 like 2 minutes ago.

    I think you might have media problems (+ vs. - formats).

    What brand of media, which format (+R or -R), what OS (10.2 or .3), what computer and what brand of DVD drive (check in System Profiler)?

    One more bump...

    I believe that there are different versions of UDF files out there.. pantehr can play up to 1.5, where the one i have is 2.0( i think).
