Unhappy Have to reload file every reboot

In order to play DVD's for some reason I have to reload
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/dvd on every reboot. Also with Acidrip.

If you have gui go to "Advanced settings>>Defaults>>DVD & set it to automaticall use the DVD player of your choice then when you insert dvd it will open for example: VLC. I chose VLC because if I open VlC I have to go to menu to select /dev/Sr0. But making VLC default it just opens.

Also could you list the contents of /etc/fstab.

Configure your dvd player to use /dev/sr0 instead of /dev/dvd

the dvd symlink is pointless
