Hi, I have a G4 running OS 9.2 with a CD-R drive built in, and want to get an external DVD drive to watch movies on it. I was looking at this IOMEGA one:

and was wondering if there was any way to get a program to do this. I can't find any software in any stores, and have heard that you cant play DVD movies on external drives on G4's unless it had an internal one already on it. I would prefer a free program, but it can't be to memory intensive due to this being a work computer. Thanks!

I believe in OS 9.2.2 that a DVD player came with the OS. You may need to install it. Also you can find a DVD player either on version tracker or on mac update.
