I have only a combination CD/DVD burner, which Puppy sees as /dev/hdc. SCSI emulation is switched off.

When I open Gxine and try to play a DVD by clicking "DVD" in the drop-down menu from "File," it says "xine engine failed to start. Unknown error." Beneath that it says "Read error from /dev/dvd". Looking in /dev, I find that /dev/dvd is a symbolic link to /dev/scd0.

I have tried changing the dvd_device in Gxine's "File->Preferences->input" but the changes don't stick, and anyway I don't really know what to put there. Sad

Hi Flash, Still no joy with this prob, I'm finding out more & more but I just can't crack it.
I need more info so I'll keep digging but someone will find the solution soon.

Have you run the CD/DVD Wizard?

Assuming that SCSI-emulation is properly turned off, which the Wizard will confirm, the Wizard will also setup /dev/dvd to point to the right place.
