please be more specific than vaguely describing what's happening.. list REAL error messages and such like. just because your distro has put it at /dev/cdrom don't think it's somehow limited.... it will function just fine as a dvd player. what program are you using to try to play dvd's? or are you just trying to access data on a dvd?
What's happening is this: I insert a DVD into my drive, linux seems to check it and immediately ejects it... no error messages at all, it just doesn't mount it.
And I have those two rpms installed.
