Re: Using DVD
Ok, let's see:
$ ls -l /dev/hdd
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 22, 64 2004-07-22 22:54 /dev/hdd
$ ls -l /dev/dvd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2004-09-07 14:22 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdd
alejandro dialout cdrom floppy audio video
Well, i could see a dvd for only 24 secs and nothing more, no audio.
Then i changed the dvd and i can't see it anymore, the message is
"couldn't open /dev/dvd"
Hope that someone can help :)
