DVD read errors with gxine


I recently installed Slackware 9.1 and configured gxine to access the correct device (/dev/hdd), but when I fire it up and select the DVD option it opens the DVD and plays for about 5 seconds and then I get the following error.

Code:
Read error from: Error reading from DVD.
This happens as root as well. What could this be. I have installed libdvdcss and libdvdread and still no go.

Any ideas here. I really don't want to install any other player if I can keep from it, but if I have to then I will.

This is really starting to tick me off. Xine worked one time and now I am getting errors with it as well. What gives?
