similar problem? Encrypted DVDs won't play.
I'm having identical problems under SUSE 9.3 on a Gateway Solo 9500 with it's stock CDRW/DVD drive.
Kaffeine came with SUSE, I gave up on it quick because it's error message seemed to say the version wasn't made to play DVDs.
I followed the advice here to get Xine to work;

Hi - Something worth trying (and it might not sort out all your dvd problems but it can help) is to figure out what your cd/dvd drive is called on your system. For example you might try:
and find the following line:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
Ok, so now I would create a symbolic link between /dev/hdc and /mnt/cdrom. To do this I would go cd /dev and type
ln -s /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom (you need to be root to do this).
That little trick can sometimes work, and it won't do any harm to your system. You just need to figure out how yours is set up.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

I haven't tried Xine in a while, but currently I can play all DVDs (that I've tried) with mplayer. I'm presently using v1.0-1pre7 from the Mandriva distribution, though I previously got it directly from mplayerhq.hu.
There is an 'mplayer-gui' package that gives you a pretty GUI control center if you need it, but I prefer to run it directly from the command line.
