With Mandriva I can see all my hard-drives and the actual DVD player under my "storagemedia" desktop icon, so when I click on the "dvd" icon it shows the path being media:/hdd.
So my question is, do I change the path from "/dev/hdd/" to "media/hdd" ?
Mandriva is telling you that your DVD device is connected at hdd, and that it is mounted under the /media directory. dev/dvd
is the default entry for DVD::rip so /dev/hdd
should work. If it does not, you can find the dvd device linked to your DVD drive. Open Konqueror (the HOME icon). Navigate to the /dev
directory (dvd is not a directory). Find the dvd node linked to hdd (You may have to resize the Name list so you can see the Link list at the right of the main pane). On my system, the dvd and dvd0 nodes are linked to hdc. The dvd1 node is linked to hdd. The one you want is the dvd node (dvd, dvd0, dvd1, etc.) that is linked to hdd on your system. If it is dvd1 use /dev/dvd1
as the path in DVD::rip, if it is dvd2 use /dev/dvd2
