DVD Problems

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know there's probably an answer somewhere on the forum (i've looked) -- yet I'm stuck, totally stuck.

No idea what to do or how to make this work how it should.


I have an emachine t-4010

CPU: Intel® Celeron® D Processor 340

Chipset: Intel® 865GV

Memory: 1024MB DDR SDRAM (PC3200)

Optical Drive: dvd-rw

Video: Intel® Extreme Graphics2

(64MB DDR shared video memory)


I installed my Kalyway 10.5.2 - runs beautiful, have my internet via my "speedbooster linksys card"


Yet, I can't play DVD's due to this god-awful annoyance of an error "A valid video device could not be found for playback. [-70017]"


And, I go into system pref's

Type: Display

Bus: Built-In

VRAM (Total): 64 MB of shared system memory

Vendor: Intel (0x8086)

Device ID: 0x2572

Revision ID: 0x0002

Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded



Resolution: 1024 x 768

Depth: 32-bit Color

Core Image: Software

Main Display: Yes

Mirror: Off

Online: Yes

Quartz Extreme: Not Supported/quote]


So, of course, obviously it's not supported, and I can't find the push to make it work.


I've tried a couple different things and maybe I'm not following clearly.


Please, clearly steer me through this.


Thanks ;)

The specs for emachine t-4010 here show 3 PCI Slots and 1 AGP slot. Are you sure your machine does not have AGP?


Basically for QE and CI (which are required for DVD playback and other effects) you need OpenGL and Pixel Shader 2.0 both of which are not supported by Intel 865GV. Same requirement for Vista Aero. GeForce FX5200 would be the cheapest card with those features.

I know that it is not a hardware problem. My 8800 GT 512 has the same issue. I can play video in Quicktime via Perian, but VLC, DVD Player, and Front Row will not show video. They will play sound. Front Row does not even show the menus.
