Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128086
can't play DVDs on MATSHITADVD-ROM SR-8176, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

Description of problem: I have an ECS Desknote box with an integrated
CD/DVD drive. With 2.4 kernels, I used ide-scsi to play DVDs but this
isn't possible with the stock Fedora 2 2.6 kernels. If I build a
custom kernel with ide-scsi module support, I can play DVDs; but I
don't think I should have to do this with relatively standard and
ancient hardware. Is there anything that can be done?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fedora Core 2 freezes/crashes when I attempt to read a DVD with my Matshita SR-8177
DVD-ROM drive. I am using an IBM R40 laptop. Please fix this!
any better with the latest update kernels ? How about if you disable dma on that
drive with hdparm -d0 ?
Turned out to be a configuration problem (/dev/dvd symlink not removed by
updating from FC1 to FC2).
