I use Leopard with an external USB DVD player.
Apple DVD Player does not support External DVD drives, only internal.
Gives this error:

There was an initialization error
A valid DVD drive could not be found. [-70012]

How can I solve this problem? Anybody?

Some people reported fixing this with a patch named useroppatch1.9.dmg. I could not find this patch anywhere.
This patch in order to work required a special framework. This was reported working with Tiger not Leopard.
Here is a guy talking with himself.

The reason is that due to licensing issues, DVD Player/Front Row will never play DVD's from external drives. I would think that this limitation could easily be patched in the various OSX86 distributions, but perhaps not many people are aware? It is proving to be a serious setback for my Hackint0sh setup (which is a small box with only an external DVD drive).

VLC, Handbrake and OSXBMC are not affected by the way.
