    I'm talking about the actual program, not the drive.

    After I wake up my MacBook Pro from sleep and click on DVD player, it won't read the DVD. I get an error message. I have to log out and sign back in for it to work. My MBP does display the DVD on the desktop after wakeup, it's just the DVD player program that doesn't work.


    how to fix this?

    Try resetting the PRAM. Then a permissions repair via Disk Utility.

    Hopefully that'll clear it up. If not, well hopefully one of those will clear it up.

    PRAM holds system configuration and other device specific info. used by the software. Here's the Apple blurb:

    You are quite welcome. Glad it was an easy fix cause alternative is a pain.;)
