I'm trying to play DVDs on my MacBook Pro however the disk doesn't play it doesn't even mount.

When I check Disk Utility it shows the format as Windows NTFS 3G.

If I try the same disks on another macbook it shows as Universal Disk Format (UDF) and plays fine. How do I fix this?

Do other discs work in that drive? A normal music CD for example? –  sdg May 31 '11 at 13:54
    
Yes music CDs and software disks are fine. –  Weatherman Jun 1 '11 at 11:14

It appears Parallels is the cause of the issue. Found some instructions on paragon-software.com and executed step 1. DVDs now working great!

Glad you worked this one out. It was a real head scratcher. –  boehj Jun 1 '11 at 23:36
