    Hi,

    a friend of mine has some problems with her DVD drive.
    It does not accept some video DVDs as it seems, but not always the same, that seems to be varying.

    Also there is this strange error message, which I can't get my head around, as NTFS-3G should have nothing to do with CDs or DVDs, as they use a completely different and independent file system.
    (it's a screenshot of a screenshot by the way.)

    She runs Mac OS X 10.5.8 on a 15" Unibody MBP with 2.4GHz and 4GB RAM (early 2009) and has NTFS-3G installed to transfer data onto NTFS formatted drives.

    Can anyone give any insight into this?

    Or is Praha really a nice town after all the winter geese flew to Karlovy Vary?

    Are U ejecting the drive before
    disconnecting it in Windows?

    There is no Windows involved, either via Virtual Machine or Boot Camp. The NTFS-3G drivers are only installed for writing to NTFS formatted HDDs, to transfer files (mostly work related).

    The DVD drive that makes that problem, is the internal SuperDrive, and I'm just stumped by this message, as it seems so unrelated.
