Well thank you. It turns out I didn't get my symlink correct (I am sorta new to all of this and am still learning). I removed it and am now trying to set it up correctly. How exactly am I supposed to know which one is my dvd rom? I know it mounts as /mnt/cdrom2. I also have a hdc, hdc2 and hdd in my /dev. I tried to symlink all 3 (one at a time of course
to /dev/dvd but it always tells me "no such file or directory" It didn't tell me that the first time I linked them (to the incorrect destination), only after I removed the assumed incorrect link.
I still get the farthest when I change the input setting in Xine from /dev/dvd to /mnt/cdrom2. It at least plays about 2s of the disc before giving me the previous error.
Thanks again for the help.
