..DVD Player won't work in 10.1..

I just upgraded from 10.0.4 to 10.1 (that I got from my local Mac store) and the DVD player program will not work. I get a message as follows:

This machine configuration is not supported. The application will now quit.

I have a TI Book G4 500, 512 MB RAM. I'm trying to use the DVD player that is built into the thing, and don't see why there is a problem :(

Someone help please... I need my movies!!! ;)

On related issue, I can't get Toast to recognize my QPS 16X Firewire CD-RW. Just says that no supported drives found. In 9.2.1 there was a way to turn off the burner extensions so that they wouldn't conflict with Toast. I don't see how to do this in 10.1, if this is the problem. Thanks to anyone who may have the answer!!!

Well i updated like you a few days ago and when i first ran the DVD player it quit out and was being ghey, but the next time i opened it and since it has been fine, so i don't know a solution sorry ;-/

And with the toast, i get the same error in x, says no cdr found, so i have to boot into 9 and burn there..
I hope you get the dvd player app going.

I just got 10.1 and think Apple did a great job with the DVD program.

What's even more amazing is I am a person who <i>could</i> benefit from the iMac/G4 DVD Settlement so my dvd is not supposed to work well :rolleyes:. (Even though the case seems bogus to me)

My ONLY problem with the new DVD player is when I switch to full screen, my speakable items SOMETIMES opens. The only way I can turn it back off is by accessing speakable items in the System Preferences. Does anyone know why this happens and how to stop it?

there have been several dvd's i have used where when i use the maximum size, it fills the screen horizontally, while keeping the destop visible above and below the picture. however, when i do fill screen so that only the movie is visible, then suddenly the pictire becomes very small (no longer filling the screen) on top of the black background.

i am hoping its just a bug, because when you fill the screen it should show the max size on top of the black background.

thanks for any help.
