I’ve been following this for a few days now and wanted to try it out myself for sure–the Star Wars Episode I, The Phantom Menace DVD is not Mac compatible.

Furthermore, the DVD states there is exclusive content for DVD-ROM owners online. But this content is limited to PC DVD-ROM users *only*. Nothing on the packaging states anything about this “limitation.” The message board at www.starwars.com are already alight with complaints from avid Mac users about this.

The site has said the trailer for Episode II will only be available online through the a DVD-ROM exclusive Web link, and the trailer will be in QuickTime format! So the trailer will be presented with Apple technology, but no Apple computer will be able to view it!

[Updated – According to your reports, the Star Wars Episode I DVD has intermittant problems with some (not all) Mac configurations, … More soon. – Ed]
