    I looked at my System Profile, clicked on Extensions and noticed that every one of my extensions, with only one exception, says "Satisfied" in the Dependencies column.

    The lone exception reads "Incomplete" under the Dependencies column. The name of the extension is "IODVDStorageFamily."

    Does anyone have any idea about how I can change this to "Satisfied"?

    This is what it says:

    IODVDStorageFamily:

    Version: 1.3.1
    Last Modified: 8/5/04 9:45 PM
    Get Info String: 1.3, Copyright Apple Computer, Inc. 1998-2003
    Location: /System/Library/Extensions/IODVDStorageFamily.kext
    kext Version: 1.3.1
    Loaded: No
    Valid: No
    Validity Errors: Kext has a kernel dependency prior to version 6.0 and CFBundleVersion does not match executable's MODULE_VERSION
    Authentic: Yes
    Dependencies: Incomplete
    Dependency Errors: com.apple.iokit.IOCDStorageFamily: No valid version of this dependency can be found

    I'm running OS X.3.6 on a dual-boot Power Mac G4 MDD 1.25GHz single processor, with 1.25GB RAM, a Pioneer 107D Superdrive plus Toshiba combo drive, 80GB system drive plus 120GB extra storage drive, and an Orange Micro Grapple SCSI+Serial PCI card.

    Thanks. I went and found out how to update prebindings:
    sudo update_prebinding -root / -force
    ... so I did that, and it took a little while. Then I checked my system profile again and I still have incomplete dependencies in the same extension.

    Any more ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem.
    Problem remains after I did sudo update_prebinding -root / -force

    Any ideas?

    I checked my extensions/dependencies on a couple other Macs and it would appear as if Apple has left IODVDStorageFamily hanging with incomplete dependencies. It's sort of odd but I suppose also sort of neat that I found a quirk in the OS. It doesn't appear to affect usability.
