    I ve just bought second hand, but new Mac PRO 15``. Everything is great except playing DVDs. I can only start playing it after inserting it into disc player. Otherwise when I try to click the DVD icon on the desktop it brings me to all DVD folders (same when I try to open it by rightclicking it using the mouse)
    The Computer system was reinstalled, so maybe there is sth to be changed in settings to make it work properly? I have installed Divex player and here also option Open takes me to the folders not to the movie itself ....
    I would simply like to be able re-play a DVD without having to re-insert it everytime.
    Thank you for your advice?

    Try opening the DVD Player Application with the Disc already inserted /Applications/ and see if that actually does anything at all, if it cant see the disc it may display an error code which is useful :)

    Check your applications folder for 'DVD Player'. Open it and go to 'file' and select 'Open DVD Media' then select your disc.
