Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
All i want to know whether it is a DVD-video disk or DVD data disk. If it played automatically, then it should the DVD-video disk.

So, Lets Start !

You can convert DVD videos with a software named Handbrake(free). First download it...
Download Handbrake


Mount and Install the *.dmg file that you downloaded i.e the Handbrake application. Then insert the DVD video disk into your Mac's drive and open HandBrake. It will bring the source window. Select the DVD drive icon and click Open

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
