Having installed version 1.9 on an 2nd Generation iMac with a superdrive running OS X version 10.3.9 it has killed my drive. I can not longer play DVD's through DVDPlayer or burn CD's or DVD's through iTunes or Toast. Can anyone please advise how I can remove this patch? Cheers.

The Server is Down for 72 hours , they are updating Servers. Unfortunally the latest version (1.8) doesn't work for DVD Player 4.6.1 ( it does for 4.6 though ) I mailed the creator about above , but he didn't reply . On his site , while it was still up , i read that he retired. I still have hopes for a 1.8.1 version that ofcourse would do the job for 4.6.1 , maybe not from XVI but from his successor.

Letting this unknown patch into ROOT makes me nervous. I won't do it.

Then don't. But think about it... you may notice that the patch has been download more than 5,000 times. No one has come screaming about how it screwed their system. On the contrary, people are quite pleased with the results. Of course they are all lying and their Macs all crashed AND burned to a crisp only after first sending all their most confidential info to parts unknown.

Suggestion: It would make me more comfortable to have the installer make a backup copy of the DVD Player application, just in case something goes wrong, or Apple comes up with an update that will not recognize the patched application.

This little tiny patch has worked wonders with all OS X's I've updated to so far. 10.2 - 10.3. And I've used it on both my iMac and eMac with a LaCie external 4x DVD writer flawlessly! Thanks to the developer, big time! And to all the patch rookies like moi, make sure your logged in as the ROOT if it doesn't work with your user account.

"this patch also removes the restriction introduced in Mac OS X 10.3.5 where an internal DVD drive is required to run the DVD Player" This doesn't work for me with Tiger 10.4 and an external drive. What to do ?

Use the VLC DVD viewer. I use that more than the Apple one and I have both internal and external drives. Not quite as flash but it plays anything (VCD/DVD/MPEG etc) and it also ignores region codes. Do a search for VLC on MacUpdate.

This is not needed in Tiger. The DVD Player already lets you fast forward annoying commercials, I tried it on Shrek 2.

Thank you, now if there was some thing like this that would make PS2 Disc copies to work on a unmodded PS2. Long live the Right of Fair Use Act.

Thanks! Now I can shut the film up when it assumes I'm a pirate and warns me that copying DVDs is theft, which it isn't. I can also skip the trailer that shows me all the best bits of the film I'm about to watch.

This is a great way to work around forced trailer viewing, and I'm glad someone is offering it! One thing to keep in mind is that some DVDs are known to rely on the restrictions to make the menus work properly, though, so watch out for problems.
