This option is in /etc/grub.conf, but I guess it's better use yast to change the boot options.

Thanks for your replies and your patience!

I disabled "hdd=ide-scsi" with Yast and rebooted, but I still can't access the DVD player.

This is what I can see using "dmesg | more":

Code:
Probing IDE interface ide1...
hdd: ASUS DVD-E616P2, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
Code:
hdd: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM drive, 512kB Cache
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
Attempting manual resume
PM: Checking swsusp image.
swsusp: Suspend partition has wrong signature?
PM: Resume from disk failed.
And after that a lot of lines like these:

Code:
hdd: media error (bad sector): status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdd: media error (bad sector): error=0x30 { LastFailedSense=0x03 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 74368
I got these messages during the install of Suse and this what prompted me to use "hdd=ide-scsi" in the first place.

If this happens for various cds/dvds then perhaps your drive is broken or just dirty.
Try another cd player if it's possible, or put this one to another box to see what happens.

Cool

Allright! I got the bleeding thing working......

You're comment about a faulty drive got me thinking. I had it working under Fedora Core1 and I couldn't understand why it wouldn't work under Suse. As an experiment I switched it from the second IDE cable to the first one and that did the trick.

Thanks for your taking your time!

Glad to hear that all is now hunkydory. I don't (usually) respond to '0 replies' posts unless I think that I can offer a constructive suggestion, but I am happy to know that it was a hardware/physical connection problem, rather than a software/installation problem. These things can be a major headache when you cannot see 'inside the box', something I try consciously to resist, by always thinking 'outside the box'.
