Hello everybody,

When I insert a dvd with computer data, Puppy recognizes it and I can mount it but when I insert a movie, an original dvd, Puppy won't recognize it. Probably a little patch or software to download on PPM but I don't know what to do. Any idea?

Unless it's external, Gnome-MPlayer >> file >> disc >> "open dvd w/menus" should do it.

I'm running Precise Puppy from a multisession DVD. When I put a DVD movie in the drive, it shows up in the bottom left corner of the desktop, along with the rest of the filesystems Puppy recognizes. If I click on its icon, Gnome starts and plays the movie.

Guess I was wrong to assume this to be the first thing the OP would have tried. Me too.. I'd ah just clicked.

Having visited the forum several times after posting, what's the verdict FOSF.. Where are ya with this?

I have sometimes had DVD's would not be recognized by Puppy, sometimes the iMac won't recognize them either and sometimes Windows won't. Rarely do they all fail, but it has happened and I don't know why.

When Puppy doesn't recognize them the icon does not even appear. Confused

After several attempts with different dvds, tried to open via gnome player, nothing works. And when I insert a dvd a strange noise is coming from my internal disc reader as if it was trying to read it but was jammed. This is an old laptop maybe the reader is not working properly after all these years

Reload your disk(s). It sometimes takes a try'er two until she properly seats.

Does an icon pop up on the desktop after loading a disk? Yes? Good. What's Pup call it >> sd<?>

You should be able to run this in a terminal:
Code:
wodim -prcap

You'd be looking for a >> "does read DVD-ROM media" and "does read DVD-R media" response.

No the icon doesn't appear on the desktop when I insert a movie.

The result of wodim -prcap is good. Says Does read DVD ROM Media and Does read DVD RAM Media

See if you can reload the disk a few times and get it to where it doesn't sound like it's clunking, then go through the Gnome-player routine. Confirm for me the drive's an internal and not external unit. It reads an audio cd OK, right?

What did "wodim -prcap" detect your device as.. /dev/what?

"And when I insert a dvd a strange noise is coming from my internal disc reader.."

I wonder if reducing your drives read speed would improve the outcome?

Easy enough with a little command-line magic..

i confirm that my drive is internal. But I haven't downloaded libdvdcss. First time I hear about it. Maybe that's the patch or software that I need. I'll try when I get back from work

While "when I insert a dvd a strange noise is coming from my internal disc reader.." has nothing to do with your issue, Precise should have that preloaded. Use Pfind, *system* search "libdvdcss" and confirm. That you didn't address my comment, well..

libdvdcss so ? what were you doing then ?
Pike and poke (basic Smile will now be the rule.
I ill dot a pet with libdvdcss extracted from Slacko 5.3.3 of Jejy69, french developer born in France, who emigrate to help (create !) US developers with LXpup.
What will they do without Europe ?
Chapter : open with works with gnome-mplayer but my goaaal was to test XFCE applications Parole and Xfmedia. If you don't use them with XFCE puppies, Xfce would be only an ugly desktop Sad for my opinion.

What was he doing then? He wasn't doing anything, because if he had, we would have heard about it already because all of this happened over two freaking years ago!
