DVD player stops working after hardware upgrade


All was well with my Debian Testing box. I could play DVDs using my DVD player /dev/hdc and burn using my cd-writer on /dev/hdd. I replaced the cd-rewriter with a dvd-writer and suddenly I can't play dvds anymore.

With Totem, I get : Failed to play Audio/Video Disc
Unexpected error status 8192 while mounting /media/cdrom0

When I try to mount a data cdrom I get : could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage, or too many mounted file systems

Now. My confusion is that hdc hasn't changed at all. It's still the same hdc. my fstab looks like this :

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hda1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
#/dev/sda /media/usb0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/reader auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

As far as I can see, this is the same as before changing the cd-writer for a dvd-writer.

To complicate matters in my mind, I have also just upgraded from Debian Testing to Unstable.

Any ideas?

Hmmm. I have just disconnected my new dvd-writer and now the dvd plays. So it's something about the new dvd-writer ----------- still looking.

okay. sorted. the dvd-writer was clearly upset at not being set as master ---- it did not want to be slave. I swapped the two drives round and now all is well again in my house

Is this normal?

You should be able to make the drive be either master or slave. Are you sure this isn't just a jumper setting problem? -- J.W.
