Mac OS
I have just purchased quick time 7 pro and when I try to place a D.V.D. It brings up a massage saying it cannot be opened. I have just read that I need to download 7.6.6 . But when I registted my purchase It seemed to register alright now it does not seem to work in practice In the instructions it says to drop the movie on the quicktime icon then as I say it brings up the movie cannot be opened any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much Peter I Have got handbrake so will try that. There are other movies I have produced using Final cut express 4 HD that do not load either. Then I am a slow leaner so after a while I will sort it out. I enjoy using F.C E 4 for editing and it was while using Tom Wolsky lessons that told me it would be a help if I got the Quicktime 7 Pro so now I will explore any benefits I can gain from it. Thanks once again for your help royfrom S.A

QuickTime does not play, nor does it convert DVDs.
Use DVD Player to play the DVD. It should have by default popped up when you inserted the DVD.
To convert DVDs to .mov or other files that can be played from your hard drive, you need to first "RIP" the DVD onto the hard drive, then use a conversion program to resave that RIPed file to the .mov.
There is plenty of information on that on the web. I personally use a combination of MDRP [shareware] and Handbrake [free] to do the job.

Neither QT X nor QT 7 are DVD playing apps. Neither can open/play DVD content. QT 7 does not include native support for "muxed" MPEG-2/AC3 VOB file content. Even with the QT MPEG-2 Playback component installed, it can only play "muxed" MPEG-2 content if the audio is MEPG-1 layered audio without additional audio support. While QT X can play "muxed" MPEG-2 content, it does not accept the VOB file container. Assuming the DVD content is not encrypted, use an app like VLC to play or transcode the content. (HandBrake can also be used but is more limited regarding output compression format.) If you have the QT MPEG-2 Playback component installed, MPEG Streamclip can also be used to play and/or convert non-encrypted DVD content to QT compatible compression formats and supports both "muxed" and elementary stream content.
QT 7 v7.6.6. is required for current versions of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion. QT 7 for Leopard OS will not work on these systems.
QT 7 even with the QT MPEG-2 Playback component installed only provides limited playback capabilities. QT 7 itself does not support either the editing or the transcoding of "muxed" long GOP compression formats like MPEG-2. The normal work flow here is to convert the DVD content to "fully" compatible QuickTime compression formats before introduction to the QT player.
Since you have not indicated what kind of DVDs you are starting with or what your final goal is, it is next to impossible to make further recommendations at this point.
