    Try adding an fstab entry to mount the dvd drive. Something like:
    /dev/sr0 /media/dvd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
    where sr0 is the dvd drive's device name

    done that already: here
    cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS543232L9A300_090616FB6432LEEWNKWB-part1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HTS543232L9A300_090616FB6432LEEWNKWB-part2 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    /dev/sr0 /media/dvd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0


    and created /media/dvd location

    Angry Re: cant play dvd suse 11.1

    im at the end of my wits here. took out all entries from fstab as it appears that media is being loaded properly without them. checked to see if user is member of disk cd audio. yes. checked libdvdcss, tried libdvdcss2. i can actually play trailers, but then playback stops with cant read from media. please. anyone?

    Maybe the DVD drive needs checking. You shall check with dual-layer DVDs.

    You can try to copy from a dual-layer data DVD; burn a dual-layer data DVD; copy your failing DVD onto hard drive.

    All these will force the DVD drive to run over the whole surface and and all layers of the DVDs.

    And, by the way, maybe you should install libdvdnav4.

    Install from the Packman repo:
    libdvdread3
    libdvdread4
    libdvdnav4
    libdvdplay0
    ffmpeg
    kde4-k3b-codecs

    If this does not work, I would say the drive is failing.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.
