    I moved a Matshita ATA DVD from a biege desktop to a G3 300, apple DVD player software 1.3.1 will not play DVDs.
    Can read & install from CD's, DVD disc shows up on desktop, but player will not start up and play movie.
    system 9.1
    Tried to install newer 2.4 DVD movie software but won't install on G# 300 minitower.
    Can any one point me to a DVD player software thet will work with this DVD player?

    The beige g3's use hardware decoding, so dvd player 1.3 won't work. You can get a Wired4DVD card, or get a hacked version of Apple DVD Player 2.4. This is a software player but it was not written for the beige g3. The hacked version contains the machine check that enables you to use the DVD player with the beige g3.

    Hope this helps.
