V5.8 DVD player: error-70012

Dear Apple community,

I use a MacBook Pro 13 "(mi-2010) and replaced the Superdrive (SD) by a 750 GB HD (using the iFixit statement)." At the time I build on the 750 GB HD, it had Mac OS X 10.11.1. I noticed recently that the DVD player (v.5.8) not started correctly, display this error message:

There was an error initializing

A valid DVD drive is not found. [- [ 70012]

Pressing the Ok button, quit the program.

In this case independent of whether it is a DVD inserted in the SD card or not. The Superdrive is connected via USB as external drive and works well, for example with the VLC Player I installed before that I checked Apple's DVD player.

Until I checked the DVD player, I also downloaded from the App Store "Screen recording Studio" App (Lite and more later for €4.99). This program does unfortunately not work, and I don't know if this installation has changed the settings of the DVD player or just the fact that the SD card is not connected as external drive.

I contacted Apple Support and as a possible solution, that I've been recommended to update my Mac OS X 10.11.1 to update more recent 10.11.5 - which I did, but I still get the same error message when you start the DVD player.

You have an idea for a solution? Are there preferences that can be adapted without having to reinstall the entire operating system new risk of loss of data etc. ?

Thanks for your support!

Best regards

Özkan Yalkinoglu

  • DVD Player error

    I've been using the first element 11 for awhile and burn my projects on DVD with no problems until that 2 days ago when I tried to burn a project of 33 minutes when during the beginning of the DVD burning burning stopped, and the following error appears: "internal software error:.". \Vobulator\BlochPlanner\BlockPlanner.cpp,line 215 "

    I use Windows Pro 10, 16 GB memory, Intel processor i75820, Samsung solidstate C: drive and a 1 TB for the video drive.

    Any help is appreciated.


    Given that no one ventured all the answers that I decided just shoot myself.

    The problem was with one of the predefined Adobe titles. Once I removed this title burning proceeded as planned.

    Now, what was in this design of titles that I don't know.


  • Satellite Pro A300D - cannot play movies on a Toshiba DVD player

    Hi guys,.

    When I play movies in Toshiba DVD player I get the following error message: "unable to output the video to an external device. Please check the external output setting after the end of the application. TEMPRO, I installed and tried to install all updates - some of them were for different hardware so wouldn't install.

    I get a similar problem in Windows Media Player "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with the digital copy between your DVD player and the video card protection decoder. Try to install a driver available for your video card. VLC player works fine. The drive otherwise normally functioning.

    It's the same problem, as described in this thread: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=201029&tstart=0, but all the answers are a similar problem with HD DVD on a different model (P200).

    Anyone know how I can fix this problem? I'm not sure I can be bothered to go back and reinstall Vista etc...

    Thank you

    Hey Buddy,

    According to the Toshiba DVD Player error message: are you trying to watch DVDs on an external monitor or TV?
    In your case, I will try to reinstall the DVD playback software. This means delete the current version and then restart your computer. Then download and install the latest software from Toshiba DVD player.

    But to be honest: it's that everything works with VLC media player as it s very big and small media player that can play all audio and video files. Isn t it? ;)

  • DVD player not working not not Satellite Pro A100 - Code 37 error


    Someone help on this?

    I have an A-100 and the DVD player has stopped working in XP. I checked the Device Manager and see XP disc but returns this error "Windows cannot initialize the device of this hardware driver. (Code 37) »

    I also noticed that ASAPI.sys is not running in the Task Manager.

    I'm guessing this has something to do with the problem.

    I tried to reinstall the device drivers, but this made no difference. Any suggestions?


    Error code 37 means the driver returned failure from its DriverEntry routine.
    You can try to delete the driver from Device Manager and rebooted the new OS should recognize the drive device and initialize the driver again.

    If this is not enough, try this procedure:
    Run REGEDIT and open the following folders:

    -> SYSTEM
    -> CurrentControlSet
    -> Control
    -> Class

    After you click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} you should see two settings on the right side:
    'Lowerfilters '.

    Click on each of them, press DELETE, and then click YES.

    Then restart the laptop and see if it was useful.
