When trying to open up a DVD in either MPlayer or Kaffiene I get an error:

MPlayer:
Error Opening/Initializing the selected video_out(-vo) device.

Kaffeine:
This version of Xine (used by Kaffeine) has only a reduced
set of supported codecs. It is not able to play DVDs.
Read XINE - openSUSE for further details.

I do have disk and cdrom privileges marked on my account. That was initially a problem when the burning software would not recognize the drives.

Also now, after ripping and burning 1 DVD K9Copy overloads everything and the machine slows down to a crawl, then freezes up right when you start ripping a CD.

I tried to unistall and then reinstall and no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas?? Thanks!
