I have a rev. B iMac (512MB RAM, Formac iProRAID TV SCSI/TV-tuner card, Sonnett Harmoni 500 MHz cpu card, FireWire). Has anybody achieved the feat of dvd movie playback on this machine? The dvd is being recognized and can be read while it is in the external dvd drive hooked up to the firewire port, but the apple dvd player tells that the configuration is not supported and quits (OS X 10.2.8). No better results under OS 9.2.2 or 8.6. I assume it might be related to the gestalt id of the iMac which is ruled out as incompatible within the player software (although the cpu should be powerful enough, not?).
Any help would be appreciated!
Many thanks and best regards,
