Yes, I am trying to play a dvd. It was working just fine the other day, and now it is doing this. I thought it could possible be the copyright protection but I tryed a few different dvds, and still the same resault, then I did 'mplayer blah.avi' and it worked just fine...

The error messages say it can't open /dev/dvd. I would check to see if "/dev/dvd" is valid. On my system /dev/dvd is a symbolic link to my DVD drive, /dev/hdc
