DVD player stops working after hardware upgrade
All was well with my Debian Testing box. I could play DVDs using my DVD player /dev/hdc and burn using my cd-writer on /dev/hdd. I replaced the cd-rewriter with a dvd-writer and suddenly I can't play dvds anymore.

With Totem, I get : Failed to play Audio/Video Disc
Unexpected error status 8192 while mounting /media/cdrom0

When I try to mount a data cdrom I get : could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage, or too many mounted file systems

Now. My confusion is that hdc hasn't changed at all. It's still the same hdc. my fstab looks like this :

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hda1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
#/dev/sda /media/usb0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/reader auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

As far as I can see, this is the same as before changing the cd-writer for a dvd-writer.

To complicate matters in my mind, I have also just upgraded from Debian Testing to Unstable.

Any ideas?

Hmmm. I have just disconnected my new dvd-writer and now the dvd plays. So it's something about the new dvd-writer ----------- still looking.

okay. sorted. the dvd-writer was clearly upset at not being set as master ---- it did not want to be slave. I swapped the two drives round and now all is well again in my house :)

Is this normal?

You should be able to make the drive be either master or slave. Are you sure this isn't just a jumper setting problem? -- J.W.
