Initialization error [-70012] appears when DVD Player is Launched.

Recommended Posts

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?

 

Leads:

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.

    • Hello,   My laptop (specs in signature) runs El Capitan and it works okay, but as the title says, the computer reboots when trying to wake up from sleep. I can't seem to find why it does this, as power management is presumably working properly. I'm attaching PR files. https://www.dropbox.com/s/um4iglj2nqy81c0/debug.zip?dl=0

    • Hi there, You can either use Lilu.kext and nVidiaGraphicsFixUp.kext or you can add the following patch to your config.plist under Kernel and Kext Patches: The kexts must be placed under the following path: /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other    Name: com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy Find: BA050000 00 Replace: BA000000 00   You can use clover configurator to mount the EFI partition on the drive that you have clover bootloader installed.
