I don't have any special drivers installed. Just a regular install of Fedora and I can read and write DVDs. What drive do you have? If it came with your system what system do you have? It does appear that your drive is not being recognized. Is it IDE or SCSI or something else? What does this command output:

cdrecord -scanbus

> What drive do you have?
It is an LG

> If it came with your system what system do you have?
I built the system so it did not "come with it".

It is IDE

Hmmm, are you able to access the drive as a regular CD-ROM drive or can't you access it at all? Is there anything in the output of "dmesg" that might indicate a problem? I haven't found a lot of information on that exact drive model with Linux but it shows up in the cdrecord scan which is a good sign. I guess the drive is the slave on the IDE0 channel? All jumpers are set right? Looks like there might be a firmware upgrade but I don't know if that would have any effect.

Yes I can access it as a regular drive. I was able to stick an audio cd in it and Xine played it. It sounded very crappy but Xine played it just the same. As far as "dmesg" goes it simple says:
cdrom: open failed.
cdrom: open failed.
cdrom: open failed.
Not much help there..

Yes the drive is a slave on IDE channel 0 and yes the jumpers are set correctly. I could have swore this thing used to play DVD's/ It has been a while since I have used it but I know it used to work fine.

When I run ogle via command line I get the following error messages:
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
ERROR[ogle_nav]: failed to open/read the DVD at /dev/dvd: (123) No medium found
DVDSetDVDRoot:: Root not set

Can you mount the DVD and see files on it? If not you might try upgrading the firmware. If that doesn't do it I am not sure what the problem might be, unless it's a simple permissions issue.

I tried mounting it with both a dvd and cd in it but both fail. However when I put an audio cd in it, it does launch the cd player and starts to play the songs.

The syntax for mounting I used was:
mount /dev/cdrom /root/tmpdvd
I get the following error when I try this:
[root@Freedom root]# mount /dev/cdrom /root/tmpdvd/
mount: No medium found
[root@Freedom root]# mount /dev/cdrom /root/tmpdvd/
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: /dev/cdrom: can't read superblock
[root@Freedom root]# mount /dev/cdrom /root/tmpdvd/
mount: No medium found
The order of the three attempts above are:

1) With no disk in.
2) With audio cd in.
3) With DVD in.

A quick google search for "mount: /dev/cdrom: can't read superblock" yielded this page:
http://lists.suse.com/archive/suse-linu ... /2150.html

It's a SuSE thing, but it seems like it may apply to you as well. Has to do with ide-scsi emulation. Don't know if this will be an unrecoverable change if it doesn't work...
