ioctl dif1: input/output error in MPLAYER

I am playing a VCD in mplayer, and everytime I start the cd, or change the track, I get an error:
ioctl dif1: input/output error
What is it? How can I solve it? The video is playing perfectly

What is the output of "dmesg"?

What are the contents of "/var/log/messages"?

Have you run the program using "strace -f"?

Usually, this type of error is caused by a device driver. If so, you should see interesting information in the output of "dmesg" and in "/var/log/messages".

If it is a problem in user space, "strace -f <program>" will show you the system call that failed, along with the parameters that were passed to it.
