Apple DVD Player does not recognize Memorex external DVD burner/player

iBook - MacOSX.3.9 - Memorex external DVD x16 burner Firewire -
Patchburn 3.1.1 - Apple DVD Player


I am using an iBook that only has a CD player built in. I thot i would
be able to plug my external Memorex DVD burner and use it to watch DVDs
but DVD player did not recognize it. After i installed Patchburn for
Panther, DVD player said it had "internal errors".

First, i am not certain i installed everything. Because the iBook only
had a CD player, the OS installation did not include DVD player. I
copied it from another laptop. When i looked at every file that
includes DVD in its name with the Finder, the two computers matched
libraries and such. But i may be missing some other critical file.
Which?

Is there another piece of software i could use to watch DVDs on the
iBook?

Why is life so complicated?

failed because this type of cd is not supported (Error Code 0x80020043)
as well as "The disc failed to be written"
