you mean just a data dvd? well it's presumably not mounted... can you see the content outside of mplayer?

nope. not that easy

Xine plays the dvd's with sound. but its kinda 'choppy'
kafiene plays the dvd with no sound. i didn't bother to play with that to see why..

but mplayer, will open. no data loads. click the eject to find the files. and it shows nothing in the dvd, its looking for 'video files' and i can't change what its looking for. When i go trought a cmd line, i go into the /media/dvd and it shows nothing. but yet its playing right now in xine...

whats up with that?

you're just using mplayer wrong.... but i never use the UI on mplayer.. just try "mplayer dvd://1"

There is a dvd menu in gmplayer.

Right-click on the video output screen. You'll see a DVD sub-menu. Click on 'Open Disc' in that menu.
