VLC media player problems


I downloaded and installed VLC media player and it works just fine for regular store bought DVD's(Minus the choppy sound). But when I play a burnt copy of a DVD it will not play it, and I cant figure out why. Im using RedHat 9 on a Sony Vaio laptop.

When I run VLC from command line vlc -vvv /dev/cdrom I get the following


VideoLAN Client 0.6.2 Trevelyan

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Theres a few lines that I think are causing the problem but I dont have the fogiest how to correct them. Basically everything after ibdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.



Any help is much appreciated. Also, if posible explain as if your talking to someone who has only used Linux for about 2 months....because you are
