    iMac, and Macbook Pro
    If you can pause the image (or if it's static long enough) you should be able to use Shift-Command-3 to capture the screen to a file. I've done that while viewing video files, so it should work with a DVD.

    Yep. Doing a COMMAND+SHIFT+3 takes a screenshot and saves it on your desktop automatically as a .jpg or .png file.

    What are you using to watch your DVD? Quicktime, Front Row, Miro, etc. etc.??

    Are you pausing before you attempt the screen shot?

    It's a copyright issue. I believe though that VLC will let you do a screen shot playing a video. Give that a try. VLC is handy to have anyway as it plays more types of videos than anything else out there.

    VLC

    ??? What problems? One disc? Multiple discs? Is it / Are they clean and/or unscratched?

    Have not had any issues playing any of several hundred DVDs on my now 3 yr old Mac using DVD Player that is on every Mac.

    If you want another player, grab VLC - am pretty sure it'll be the #1 hit on a google search for it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    The sticky about screenshots is not about videos in Quicktime.

    To the OP, if you have issues let us know, but it works here and every time with VLC.
