I have an iMac Power PC running ox 10.4.11

I have a disc with some avi files on it that I want to play using VLC.

the problem I am having is that the computer is automatically ejecting the disc and not letting me do anything with it.

how do I tell the computer to not automatically eject a disc?

You can't tell your iMac Power PC not to automatically eject the disk. There may be something wrong with the disk or your machine's optical drive. Another reason may be that the disk is a DVD and your optical drive can only read and play CDs.
