I've owned (and loved) my Mac Mini for several years. When I first bought it, I tried to play dvd's, but they'd spin for a while and then pop back out. I bit the bullet and bought a dvd player anyway. I'm now in the process of getting rid of a bunch of stuff I don't need, and I'm re-investigating the possibility of using my Mac Mini to play dvd's. Do I need a new drive or new software?

    Which mini do you have? Mine is a few years old and it is very finicky when it comes to playing DVD's. Some play fine and just take a while to load. Others pop right out. VERY annoying. In your Utilities folder there is a SuperDrive Update program that will check for new drivers. Mine never found any though. Hope it helps.
