This is on mt TODO list, I was going to try and swap another dvd drive
(SATA) which is my suspicion :(

I'd think I'd have to agree :(, the damn dvd drive, it is new but old
IDE does not work as well as SATA.

I have a /etc/devfs.conf file with the following:

# Commonly used by many ports
link    acd0    cdrom
link    acd0    dvd

# Allow all users to access CD=92s
perm /dev/acd0 0666
perm /dev/acd1 0666
perm /dev/cd0 0666
perm /dev/cd1 0666

# Allow all USB Devices to be mounted
perm /dev/da0 0666
perm /dev/da1 0666
perm /dev/da2 0666
perm /dev/da3 0666
perm /dev/da4 0666

# Misc other devices

VLC did not play the dvds either, took a while to compile it(for
troubleshooting this dvd problem).  I like both players just to be
honest.

I have a similar amd64 machine that does play mostly everything in it,
but I installed mplayer differently
# pkg_add -r mplayer

** had problems with KDE and lib???.so not working and startx refused
to work, last time I used ports. But this time everything is working
beautifully have installed gkrellm, mplayer, vlc and texmaker fine via
ports.  I am getting some confidence back.

*However* that machine has SATA cables not IDE like this one, this is
my take on the issue.  If  i install/try a SATA dvd drive, it will
work*

Thanks for helping/advising.

Regards,

Antonio
