View Full Version : [kubuntu] DVDs won't play

May 5th, 2008, 05:55 PM
I have an HP tx2000z running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I have libdvdcss1.2.9 installed but I can't open dvds. I always get some weird message.

The source can't be read.
Maybe you don't have enough rights for this, or source doesn't contain data (e.g: no disc in drive). (/media/scd0)

Now I have changed /media/scd0 to a variety of things (it started out as /dev/dvd). I just don't know whay i can't play dvds. Any ideas?

If you open up /media/scd0 in a file manager, is there content?

edit: I also heard some rumor that you had to run sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh in a terminal to get it working.
