    /dev/hdc now /dev/scd0 and No DVD playback

    [SOLVED] see post below

    On a particular system a fresh install of Hardy Heron and now the dvd and dvdrw drives link to /dev/scd0 and /dev/scd1 rather than /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd like they used to.

    The system in question has the restricted packages installed. Data DVDs will mount and read fine, however, movies won't play.

    Go here and add medibuntu to your sources, then install libdvdcss2 and you should be good https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

    [SOLVED] /dev/hdc now /dev/scd0 and No DVD playback

    Solution:
    Code:
    wget http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.9/deb/libdvdcss2_1.2.9-1_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.9-1_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
    Reading package lists... Done

    libdvdcss2 is already the newest version.

    Problem:
    Even though I got a message something like "Cannot play the requested media though the correct plugin is installed"... it was wrong.

    Apparently libdvdcss2 has been taken out of the restricted extras package. LAME! (and that's no reference to the mp3 encoder). Stupid copyright issues... You know, I would be willing to pay $15 to buy all of those stupid codecs and whatnot if someone would make them commercially available in a .deb.

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

    Reading state information... Done
    Package libdvdcss2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package libdvdcss2 has no installation candidate

    I have enabled the medibuntu sources and all of that and installed all the libdvdcss's and whatnot, but still can't watch a dvd. When I open a disc in vlc it spits out lots of errors about not being able to read it and then starts playing the dvd as an audio cd! All kinds of terrible squeaks emanate from my computer.
    sudo killall python sudo killall amarokapp
