Thread: Movie DVD's Won't Mount On My System.

  1. #1

    Default Movie DVD's Won't Mount On My System.

    Hello

    When I insert a DVD movie, it won;t show up to play. I can't see it when I click on the My Computer icon, and it doesn't show up in the device notifier. I have tried a couple of different DVD's and a couple of different OpenSuse 11.4 computers. This would leave me to believe that it is a setting issue that I am missing. I have never had this issue before with other OpenSuse versions. All I had to do was install all the codecs required and voila! Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

    Thanks

    But you can play the DVD with VLC or similar?

    If you use KDE doesn't the DVD show in Dolphin 'Places'

    No, the DVD won't shop up. so, I don't get the opportunity to try and play it. I use SMplayer as a rule for playing DVD's. However, when I put my OpenSuse DVD disc it shows up of course. So my DVD burner is hooked up fine.

    Yes, after you suggested it, I set it to automount. There was no improvement. I put my OpenSuse DVD back in and it mounts it right away. This only seems to be taking place with movie DVD's. I will try yet a third DVD just to see.

    Okay, so I tried a burnt DVD and this works no problem. It just seems to be with store bought DVD's. I don't have an idea for why this would be. Anybody else have an idea?

    This doesn't happen to me
    Can you test a new user login, you'll have to create one. Maybe you have crud in your .kde4
    But smplayer has a play DVD button in the interface, does that not work?

    maybe it is a DRM problem...if you are dual booting, suggest you boot up
    with The Dark Side and see if it plays then..

    I'm not dual booting. Wanted to rid myself of "that". I can't click on the DVD button on Smplayer's interface, because DVD isn't present. Just store bought ones though. This is perplexing to my sense and sensibilities.
