CD & DVD problems

I installed Mandrake 9.0 on a sony Vaio and everything went very smooth. Everything works properly exempt my CD & DVD.
Actually, both of them can read data CDs or DVDs, but when I try a music CD I get an access error and when I try to play a movie DVD with XINE, I get a diferent error(I forgot what the error message said).
Does anybody has any suggestions???

Sorry about that ! Here are the errors:

-music CD : Unable to enter file:/mnt/cdrom2. You do not have access rights to this location.
-movie DVD : XINE Errorr. There is no input plugin available to handle dvd://video_ts.vob. Maybe MRL syntax is wrong or file/stream source does not exist.

I am facing the same problem. I am not able to play any video file using xine. i have installed it many times but still it gives some errors.
this time it says that "there is no input plugin". i am not able to play video that are in my hard disk.

any pointers to the solution.

I believe it's because Mandrake uses Supermount. I've heard people have problems with audio CDs for the device is always mounted. I don't know whether or not this will help you but you may want to try taking supermount off.
