My daughter just got new mac laptop,
we were playing movie in DVD Viewer,ejected movie,
she moved the dvd icon onto the desktop, then onto the icon bar at the bottom down below,
she placed the icon that was on the desktop into trashbin,
and emptied, and the one that was on the icon bar (along with safari,etc.) would not work.
we think the mac lost lost the ability to play movies.
is there a way to retreive or download this lost program?

Here are the ways that I know.
The EJECT symbol looks like an arrowhead with an underline underneath.
Look for a key with the symbol on the upper right of the keyboard.
Go to FINDER and look for DEVICES. The DVD Drive should be listed and there should be the EJECT symbol after it and click it.

is one of the Sony Ericsson smartphones running the Android operating
system. The phone features 4.0 inch LED-backlit LCD screen and a 1GHz
Scorpion processor CPU. It is the first PlayStation Certified device.
For game fans, it's really a good choice. With this mazing smartphone,
watching movies also seems cool.<br />

As we all know, most portable devices can't play discs. Sony Ericsson
Xperia Play is just one of them. Maybe you have a large collection of
DVD discs. So play movies on Xperia Play will be a good enjoyment. But,
in the first place, we should rip and convert DVD discs to Sony
Ericsson Xperia Play supported formats. Here I use this <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">Free DVD Ripper</a>, it's a professional DVD tool. Below is the step-by-step guide:<br />
Step 1. Download the <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/dvd-to-sony-ericsson-converter.html">DVD to Sony Ericsson Converter</a>. install and run it. Then add your DVD file. DVD disc or ISO/IFO files all will be OK.<br />
Step 2. Choose the suitable format for Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. i
recommend you "Format < Android < Motorola Droid (x) H.264 Video
Step 3. Click on "Settings" to set the Size (pix) as 1280×720 ( Play
720P movies on your Xperia Play in full screen with High Quality ). Or,
you can set its video resolution as 854×480 if you need, it also can
full screen.<br />
Tips: Click on the "save" to finish the settings. Or you can also click
"save as" to rename (such as Sony Ericsson Xperia Play H.264 Video
*.mp4) the profile for next use in Custom category of "Format".<br />
Step 4. Click the " convert" to start the process.<br />
After a short time, you will get the converted file. Then transfer it to
XP. Now you can watch movies on Xperia Play as ease. Have fun!<br />

change the format into mpeg2 just download a software totalconverter software then install it on your pc but before you burn it see to it that the format is change already into mpeg1 or mpeg2. steps how to convert just drag the movies to the total converter then click the icon mpeg that is after it convert that's is the time you burn it i assure it will play now to your dvd player
You didn't say how you are connecting the drive. with a MBP you should be able to play the movies if the drive transfer speed is enough. Try moving the movie onto the desktop and playing it, if that works, then it's a transfer speed problem. If not, then you probably need the right piece of software to run it. I'd try VLC which is an open source player that takes almost any content type.
when u insert disc log out of dvd player,,, go to mac hd and click on the disc u inserted,,,click n drag the video_ts folder on to desktop wait for import,,,,once done take out the disc,,,now click n drag the video_ts folder onto the dvd player icon...
If your OS is System 10, Go to home and find application folder, there you can find iMovie icon and double click it.
or If your system is OS 9.0 or 9.2, double click your system folder which is on the desktop and then find the application folder, there you can find the iMovie icon, double click it and thats it.or If you have the Operating System CD installer, try browsing the CD and open all packages content. There you will find iMovie installer and install it. Thats it!
