Some discs do indeed have copy protection. You could try another DVD player software such as VLC or Interactual's DVD Player for the Mac and launch the program before inserting the DVD. If it still doesn't read, it is possible the movie publisher chose to have very specific copy protection put on the disc that the Mac doesn't understand. You could also try to play the disc running Windows or Linux on the Mac with Oracle's VirtualBox. If it works there, it says there is something about the Mac's DVD drivers that doesn't like the copy protection on the disc. Contact the movie publisher and let them know you are haivng this trouble.An Apple user since 1981, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
