DVD Problem on Debian


Hi, Im using Debian and I want to be able to detect my DVD.

currently, by running DMESG from console, I can see that the kernel detected my DVDrom correctly at hdd.

but the problem is, in the /etc/fstab, I saw only my CD burner is mounted at /dev/cdrom, a symbolik link to hdc.

My question is:

What should I do so that I'll be able to use my DVDrom (ASUS)?
Has anyone used the same as me, 1 CD burner and 1 DVD rom?

Thanks

Have you tried reading thru this? http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDE...e.html#HWCDROM Here is my /etc/fstab:

Code:
tyler@localhost:~/image/manga/Hajime_no_Ippo$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom    iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy     auto    user,noauto,exec 0       0
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom      iso9660 ro,user,noauto,exec 0        1
/dev/hdd        /cdrom      iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
EDIT:

Well I just read thru it. I still haven't gotten DVD playback to work on my Debian install yet, but that's mostly because I was putting it off. After reading thru the second DVD playback doc in the above link, I found that I was missing two xine plugins. But when I tried to do apt-get install it said it could not install them. Does this mean that currently its impossible to get DVD playback working with xine on the sarge distrobution? (Hah, not likely. Nothing's impossible in Linux!!! )

Code:
localhost:/home/tyler/image/manga/Hajime_no_Ippo# apt-get install xine-d5d-plugin xine-d4d-plugin
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  xine-d4d-plugin: Depends: libxine0 (>= 0.9.8-2) but it is not installable
  xine-d5d-plugin: Depends: libxine0 (>= 0.9.8-2) but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

One final comment. Before anyone tells me to go get mplayer, let me just say that I loathe mplayer (yes I have used it before). I really love xine and I want to use it for all my video playback needs. So there.

EDIT #2:

Ok I lied I'm not done. Is it bad if I'm missing the hdparm command from root (and my user account)? I was reading about DMA playback etc. and it said to try that on your DVD drive (mine is /dev/hdd) to see if it was enabled or whatever, but I get command not found

Damn, sorry I feel like I'm totally hijacking your thread. Anyways I'm reading through the xine documentation right now and tried to play a DVD again and here's what happened:

Code:
tyler@localhost:~/image/manga/Hajime_no_Ippo$ xine -p dvd:/
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.1.
(c) 2000-2003 The xine Team.

libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable.
libdvdnav: DVD Title: COWBOY_BEBOP_V1
libdvdnav: DVD Serial Number: 34E66FCC
libdvdnav: DVD Title (Alternative):

libdvdnav: ifoRead_TITLE_VOBU_ADMAP vtsi failed - CRASHING
libdvdnav: *** pgci_ut handle is NULL ***
xiTK received SIGSEGV signal, RIP.
Aborted
I ran xine-check and the only things that weren't good was that I don't have MTRR support built into my kernel (still using the 2.4.25 default kernel, but going to upgrade soon) and that I'm missing the hdparm command. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

No problem Roots

Yes, I have read the documentation and still I dont understand, it's too complicated for me. Do I have to install Livid utilities in order to play dvd? well, I'm running debian smoothly now, so I'd better ask before do something stupid and mess up my system

thanks for your fstab, I'll try it, as for your problem...Hope other people can help you.

Cheers
