Many iBook G3s came with optical drives for CDs only, not DVDs; and the decoding software for many of today's popular video formats runs extremely slow on all G3 processors. It's not clear that there is anything wrong with your computer other than its age. The first iBook G3 models were ten years old last February.

Thompson DVD DTH271E refuses to play HD DVDs but fine normal DVDS, cant seem to get any help via Thompson, & think may need "firmfare" update? New machine but in Spain & language...


Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

I cant Play dvds on my ibook g4 notebook


Make sure you have the right software first VLC is good software and will play almost everything.
Does your version iBook even have a DVD optical drive?
Is the optical drive failing?

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.

Unless it is a SE (special edition) one, it will not play dvds - it only has a cd drive. Tangerine and Blueberry models do not have dvd drives. Indigo and Key Lime models do. there are 2 different graphite models - one does and one doesnt. And youtube videos never play well on clamshells - they weren't designed for internet video. However youtube mobile (m.youtube.com) does work on the clamshell i've found. Good luck!

YouTube videos play, but jump from scene to scene. Audio plays in real time and sounds fine.


turns out you have an iBook G3. Your computer is really too outdated to be expected to play video properly. You can add more RAM but it really will only partially help you out. the G3 computers just aren't made for decoding streaming video, especially now that YT has HD video.

My ibook reads audio cds but not dvds what should i do


In order for a cd-rom drive to be able to read DVD's it had to be made to do that. Some older model CD_ROM's are not technologically able to read DVD's, You usually can tell if it can because it should have either a sticker or a raised portion on the front of the drive that says DVD Rom. If you have that then the next step is to install DVD playing software. Check both of those and then post back.

Youtube wont play..


If you have an iphone 3G there is a direct connection to an iphone friendly version of youtube but you can of course still access youtube from safari.. however be aware that if you do not have a wi-fi connection or at least a good 3G connection you may not be able to view any youtube video due to lack of bandwidth

LG DVD player LG276


I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.

I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.
