I have an intel core duo macbook.  the optical drive only accepts dvd's and cd's when starting up.  All play as they should.  I am hoping for some simple suggestions as I am way out of warranty and we love to watch movies in the car.


thanks in advance,



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), intel core duo
