I have an iBook G3 dual USB which won't play DVDs from an old Pioneer DVD player/writer - it works fine on my iBook G4 and has always worked well on all my Macs...
The DVD mounts but DVD player reports an 'Initialization error - a valid DVD drive could not be found (-70012)'. Mplayer doesn't work either. CDs work fine, Toast also... any help would be mightily appreciated.
iBook G3 dual USB, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
