Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2010 9:39 PM (in response to convert?)Two things, have you run the Hardware Test on your Install DVD? Have you tried resetting the Systems Management Controller?

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 26, 2010 7:43 AM (in response to Dah•veed)Thanks - tried that last night. Didn't fix it, but after a repair permission following the reset, it now seems to work on and off more rapidly...haven't used it enough to be sure. Using Toast or disk utility seems to impact it as well....mini 09 and mbpro 13 09, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2010 9:12 AM (in response to convert?)Same problem for me. I have the latest Macmini (320Gb version).
Initialization error when launching the Apple DVD Player program: initialization error 70017.
I have repaired permissions and as above suggested I have launched the harware test with no problems identified.
The Error is still there. No chance to run the Apple dvd player software.
Any hint?Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2010 9:34 AM (in response to massi.rav)Forgot to say that my Macmini has no hardware video screen connected. I get the video screen on my Macbook Pro by sharing it via wi-fi.
Just thinking that the Dvd Player sfw is not running because the Macmini does not have any hardware screen attached. Possible?

Currently Being ModeratedMar 22, 2010 7:55 AM (in response to massi.rav)I'm only guessing here, but I suspect that you are the victim of DRM. Part of the DVI standard is something (which will be corrected if I'm wrong) called HDCP, which looks for a display that has no capacity for recording.
No display, no DVD playback.
Try hooking up a DVI monitor to the Mini and see if you get the same error.
