I have an external DVD drive in a external firewire box (an Apple DVD drive pulled for an internal CD-RW drive).

I want to use this computer to play movie DVD's but when I did a fresh install of OS 10.2 it did not install the DVD player.

Is there a way to use this external DVD to play movie's? (it works fine as a data DVD). Is there third party player software that will work even on my iBook that never had a DVD?

Please help if you can.
the crap is piled high ... now trying to keep up

This link to the XLR8yourmac site has instructions on how to modify the DVD player. This should also work for an external DVD drive in a firewire case. It did for me. http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/OSX/OS_X_...layer_mod.html
