Reading any kind of disk on my MacBook is since a few months an exercise in futility. 90% of the time, it just spits the disk back out. With no apple care and having rung out of my 1 year warranty, I decided to buy an external dvd player. Heading over the Lacie website, I read somewhere that DVD player will not work with an external drive. Is that so? I know iDVD won't run. But playing back a dvd movie, what is the big deal? It's a freaking dvd. I only watch dvd's. I have an external HD for backup. Can I safely buy an external dvd drive and expect dvd player to actually work?
