What is not designed to play DVDs? The drive you bought or the ibook? Have a look at this: http://www.mcetech.com/ibg3dvdr8dl.html

Maybe someone could help you if you posted more information about what you did, such as the kind of drive you bought.

iMac G3
600 MHz
OS 10.3.9

Which iBook ? If it's the 500Mhz I think you'll have a hard time unless both hd/optical have master and salve jumpers. Try to make sure the optical is set to slave.
