MPlayer DVD playback troubles


Hello,

I'm having problems with DVD playback with MPlayer. When I type:

Code:
[ ~ ] $ mplayer dvd://
I recieve following error message:

Code:
Playing dvd://.
Reading disc structure, please wait ... 
libdvdread: Can't seek to block 256 libdvdread: 
Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
Can't open VMG info!
Does anyone know what I might have done wrong? I guess all file access permissions are good:



Code:
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 2004-11-21 13:50 dvd -> /dev/hdb 
brwxr-xr-x    1 root     disk       3,  64 2002-06-09 21:27 hdb
If you have any ideas ... please help me

where does the /dev/dvd link atcually point to? try specifying the hdX device directly e.g. "-dvd-device /dev/hdc"
