    Can't reinstall DVDPlayer
    Hello,

    Using Powerbook 8ooMhz 1 GB Ram / Tiger 10.4.1

    My Powerbook DVDPlayer would not play any of my DVD's unless they were at least 5 years old ( Don't Know What That is About), so I decided to delete the DVD Player and do a reinstall.

    Well I removed DVD Player and now when I try to install the file @ http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/dvdplayer46.html the installer
    says can't install because a newer version exist on my harddrive. I took the other DVD Player out of the App Folder and into trash, then deleted it from there, were else could there be a version of the DVDPlayer or some file that appears to the installer that the DVDPlayer is installed?

    Ideas and thoughts appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Go to HD -> Library -> Receipts. Then see if you can delete the remnant the DVD Player app, then try again.

    Nothing in receipts:
    /Users/jwhite/Library


    In
    /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library

    There are many .pkg files, ones with dvd in the name are below.

    iDVD.pkg
    iDVD501Update.pkg
    iDVD5Themes.pkg
    iDVDThemes.pkg

    Thanks,

    I think you can install it from your Tiger install DVD

    I looked on the OS X DVD and DVDPlayer is not one of the optional install packages.

    Ideas Anyone!

    Try using Pacifist. Just installed mine 'cause when I installed Tiger I didn't have a DVD drive and it didn't install it.
