'When commercial DVD (NTSC) inserted into MacBook Pro DVD Player, 'Not Permitted' and 'Supported Disk Not Available' error messages are displayed when I attempted to play the DVD. DVD plays normally when inserted in a different player.'
'Some brand new DVDs just purchased will not play...it opens to the first screen, freezes on the title (there is no menu on the DVD) with the words 'PLAY' in the bottom right corner and when I press play or skip or anything, it reads 'Not Permitted'.

First, the DVD protection is not supported:
The most common protection is the region code. Commercial DVDs are protected with respective region codes based on different areas. If Apple's DVD player doesn't match the disc's regions, it will not permit the playback of the disc (Apple DVD player can change its region for 5 times only). In addition, DVD players are designed to cope with common protections. But there are some newer schemes that older Macs fail to read.

Second, the DVD type is not supported:
• Brand of DVD - DVDs from Memorex, NoName, and some other unreliable no-name brands are cheap but may cause problems.
• Type of DVD - many older DVD players won't play DVD+R media. You'd better have a newer DVD player.
• Burn speed - if users burn DVD themselves, you'd better slow down the speed to x2 or max x4, or the DVD player may not permit.
• Bad DVD - the DVD is scratched, damaged or corrupted in any way.

To fix 'Apple DVD player not permitted' error due to protection or unsupported disc types, you can convert the DVD into video files for Mac. Considering the two disc characteristics (protection & special types), you can use MacX DVD Ripper Pro.
