I wonder if you have libdvdnav installed. I don't know if it needs it optionally. You might also try searching the repositories for a package containing both xine and dvd in the title. That may be a function provided by another package. Also check if xine was built with the xine-prefix option. In other words, try "locate libxine" and if you see something like /usr/xine/lib/ as the directory make sure that this directory is in /etc/ and then run "ldconfig" as root. I doubt if this is the case. It would be more likely if you had built it from source or used a "foreign" repository.

Check in the xine configuration. Under the setup tab "Media", does the device indicated in the "Device Used for DVD Playback" exist?
