Try getting a DVD player cleaning kit and clean your Mac's DVD drive.

You can also try using an external DVD drive to verify that it's the drive, and not the software, that is the problem.

Need more information; what kind of machine is the Mac camera attached to, how old is it, what else is open on the computer, how much memory and how much free space on your hard drive...

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.


If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

We brought a used ibook 3g and it will not play the dvd's and the videos on youtube keep freezing and won't hardly play. What can we do to fix this problem?


Does it have a DVD Rom drive? check the "About this mac" section and look under ide drives. you should see something that reads DVD-ROM. If not then it won't play movies. As for youtube, its at the most a 466 Mhz laptop, if you're watching it over wireless its only 802.11.b so you're running out of machine, you need a faster one.

Rented videos are freezing temporarily during playback


If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.

IDVD: Problems with burned DVD.


Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.

The problem that I'm having is that when I put a dvd into the player it tries to load the disc but never does. Therefore I cannot watch any dvd.

Movie skips and freezes during play


CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
