View Full Version : DVD playback problem

26th May 2008, 08:04 PM
After installing codecs, plugins etc I am still unable to to watch DVD's. I am using Fedora 9. When I try to start Kaffeine, the Installation wizard tells me that

DVD Drive...
Can't check DMA mode. Permission denied or no such device: "/dev/dvd".


$ ls -l /dev/dvd

I get

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2008-05-26 17:50 /dev/dvd -> sr0

Can anyone please tell me how to sort this?

Thanks very much.

How do I find out what the actual hardware device representing my DVD-ROM drive is? Most of the stuff I've found through Google uses /dev/hdc, but I don't have that device file in my /etc directory.

I'd be very grateful for any help.
