    I'm running 10.5.2, all other dvd's work fine when I play them.

    Just this one dvd for my teaching program gets the "supported disc not available" message, I have tried playing on my tv dvd player and it seems to work fine. (it was made on a mac..)

    In disk utility, when I go to repair disk permissions, it is grayed out. :/

    I have tried running handbrake to try to convert it to a different format, handbrake says, "no valid source found" when I go to select the dvd as the source.

    I have also tried playing it on VLC Media Player, and here is what the error reads:

    vcd: search for kIOCDMediaClass came up empty
    vcd: failed to get the TOC
    vcd: no movie tracks found
    access_file: file /dev/rdisk1 is empty, aborting
    cdda: search for kIOCDMediaClass came up empty
    cdda: failed to get the TOC
    cdda: no audio tracks found
    main: no suitable access module for `dvdnav:///dev/rdisk1'

    What's up? Bad dvd?
    Thanks for any help for a newbie!

    Hey, the disc is probs fine!

    Same thing happens to me sometimes.

    On VLC go to:

    File>Open Disc>find Video TS files>click on the Video TS in the disc and press open

    There you go!:apple::):):):):):):):):)
