I have been working on trying to get Ubuntu 9.10 to play DVDs on a portable Pioneer IDVD8PB DVD/CD Writer for the past two weeks with no luck. The device works great with Vector 6.0 Standard using Xine.
I can the following error when attempting to play a DVD using Xine from the command line:
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdread: Can't stat /dev/dvd
No such file or directory
I thought my problem was a missing Symbolic link between the device and /dev/dvd, but after trying every possible combination, I don't think that's my problem.
Does anyone have any ideas?
