playing a dvd


I'm using mandrake 10.1 and I'm trying to play a dvd. But i can't seem to find where the dvd is located on my computer when I've put it in the drive.

What program are you using? Most of the time you will want to create a symlink to the actual device.. like /dev/dvd --> /dev/hdc

Depending on what controller you have it on will tell you the actual device.

hda > Primary IDE
hdb > Primary Secondary IDE
hdc > Secondary IDE
hdd > Secondary Secondary IDE

And remember, you don't mount media DVD's, you load up the program like Totem or MPlayer and just play them, pointing to the device.
