Question: Play DVD's Problem: PowerBook G3 Lombard / Bronze Keyboard 400MHz
I have a Powerbook G3 Lombard / Bronze keyboard with the following specifications:
128GB Hard Drive
OS X 10.4.11
I've read online that this model will play DVD's only if booted into the classic Mac OS (8.6-9.2.2). This is because the 400MHz model includes onboard MPEG-2 decoding.
I've tried to watch a DVD by booting into classic mode (OS 9.2.2) while in OS X, but I just get this message:
"That application or control panel is not supported by Classic."
I've also tried to watch a DVD by booting directly into OS 9.2.2, but this just gives me an error message that reads:
"This Macintosh does not support the Apple DVD Player. Error number (301)."
I even tried watching a DVD while booted only into OS X, but get an error message that reads:
"There was an initialization error. The current machine or system configuration is not supported. [-70013]"
Does anyone now how I can watch DVD's on my Powerbook G3 Lombard? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
