I have never seen that with and been playing DVD's with DVD player in OSX for years now. That is supposed to be the DVD's name. Like the 2nd poster asked, what DVD is this?

kinda trivial, but that's more Japanese. I can't read the kanji, but I know the character in the brackets (which don't actually mean anything by themselves - it's basically a sound, with no real meaning). I'll check with my GF to see if she could translate the rest for me to see if there's any significance - I doubt there is, but I'm curious anyway.

There was a topic just like this some months ago, but I can't remember now the solution that was given. Give it a quick search and see what you can dig up ;)

I'll get back later tonight if I can get a translation.

Here is the previous thread on this - had no solution. I still run into this on occasion. Just to check it out again, of the 4 DVD's I have from Netflix right now, Deja Vu displays the title in Japanese. It has never affected anything other than the title bar in DVD player so I haven't really been too concerned about it.

Have already tried all the different settings in Preferences and have not found one that had any effect.

Checked out my Pirates of the Carib. - "Curse of the Black Pearl" displays in English while "Dead Man's Chest" displays in Japanese.

Here is a screen shot of DVD Player for those that may be wondering.
