Did an update to my iMac last night without thinking and now Apple's DVD player won't recognize my external DVD drive.

So, my ex-boyfriend set me up with an external DVD player so I could watch movies on my ancient iMac. He also found a patch to get Apple's DVD player to recognize that drive. Well, the people who made the patch are no longer updating it and I stupidly ran an update to my operating system last night and now the DVD player errors, says it can't find a valid drive. I tried throwing away the DVD player and installing an older version but it won't install, saying that a newer version is already there. Obviously, I haven't REALLY uninstalled it. Can anybody give me some tips or am I truly screwed?
