    IDVD seems to be working fine -- unless it's clashing with DVD player and causing the crash?

    Aha !

     

    Then I'm on track again and can se the logic in this problem

     

    I think info on QuickTime Player version at use also mightr be important

    • QT X

    • QT 7.6.4 ?

     

    and what plug-ins are avail to QT e.g. Perian etc as these are known problem makers from time to time.

    I just fixed my issue - I inserted a store bought movie DVD (not one that I burned) and after it played for the first time, I then inserted the DVD that I had just burned and the player did not crash this time. Not sure why - perhaps the DVD Player had to initiate it's location setting with a valid DVD during the first time playing...  either way, try that if you are still having issues.

     

    I just had the exact same issue.  It wasn't with a burned DVD, but probably it wasn't a movie, it was some training.  I put in a store bought movie and let it play and after that the training video worked just fine.

    Have exactly the same problem with a Mac Mini - since upgrading to 10.8.2

     

    Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)

    Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00000000000004c0 ...etc...

     

    I will try a fix permissions and reboot.

    There's a potential solution listed on this thread -- suggested reverting to Lion version of DVD player.

    Anyone tried it?

    Just tried it - and it worked for me

    Repair permissions did not work.

     

    Then I downloaded the lion dvd player framework as suggested by scartacus. Worked! Happy days.

    Because this MBP is still under warranty (only 1 week old!!), after talking to Apple Support for a bit, I ended up at the Genius Bar at the local Apple Store Friday.  They didn't have any DVD movies to test it with, but suggested trying to re-install ML (and only after I assured them I had a working Time Machine back up available).

     

    After reinstalling 10.8.0, the older version of DVD Player worked.  Due to other reasons not associated with this DVD Player flap, I had to do a complete Time Machine restore today during lunch.

     

    And for reasons I cannot begin to explain, DVD Player 5.6.1 now works fine... inexplicable.  The restore was from a back-up made on Friday afternoon, when the Player was not working...

    I did the same; went to my local MacStore, nice people working there. At the support desk I was suggested to make a resh install of Mountain Lion OS. I cou;dn't believe my ears. A fresh install iss a Microsoft solution. It'll probably take me a whole day of work, to install the OS and renew all the sofware updates of applications that I run...

    Sorry to run astray from  the topic a bit, but I hope there'll be more profound solutions from Apple still.

    Then You should address Apple - as by

     

    www.apple.com/feedback/imovie.html

     

    www.apple.com/feedback/finalcut.html

     

    You see the system ?

     

    This is a User helping other User's forum - Apple rarely here to read and very few of us can make any alteration in the program code or get Apple to do so.

    I had the same crashing with any video DVD and Mountain Lion. It's a new iMac so I don't know if I even tried to play a DVD before I upgraded it to ML. Anyway, after reverting to the older player (per the thread you mention) it works fine. I got a window asking me to select the region; not sure if this was because it had never been set or because I had a new version of DVD player.

     

    At any rate, the instructions (download the zip and put the resulting folder into a certain location) worked exactly for me. I had to authorize the folder move with my admin password.
