DVD Player with an external DVD Drive (Error 70012)

By default, you can run DVD Player only with an internal drive.

If you change your DVD drive or if you use an external drive... the DVD Player will not work.

Two solutions are available :
  • Use another player (like VLC)
  • Patch the DVD Player framework

I will explain you how to patch your player.

Go inside the folder


Backup the file DVDPlayback.

With an hex editor, open this file and replace all "Internal" text by "External".

Replace the original file

Launch Disk Utilities to rebuild your permissions

Open "DVD Player"... it works Laugh
