Combo DVD/Cd recorder LG

Hello guys!

I have here a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B LG drive, its a beaty...

As it is a cdr, Im using ide-scsi on lilo append.
My fstab is more or less like:
"/dev/cdr /mnt/cdrom noauto,iso9660,users 0 0"
The /dev/cdr points to /dev/scdr0.

I can mount my data cds perfecty, being root or user, with the comand
mount /dev/cdr. Im mounting my dvds in this way too, and I get no message errors.

BUT when I try to watch my dvd with xine, already configured to scan /dev/cdr, it says that there is no dvd data on that path!

What could I do?

Xine uses /dev/dvd as standard device.
Make sure your /dev/dvd points to /dev/sr0 as well by
ls -l dev/dvd
and then include yourself as normal user into the disk group editing /etc/group file
This should allow you to watch dvds
PS remember to install libdvdcss first in order to watch encripted dvds
