In my case the dvd's are seen as /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1 under SuSE 10.2.
Under 10.1 were /dev/hdc /dev/hdd.
I was able to watch a commercial dvd, listen to a cd but not able to
copy dvd or burn anything into a dvd.

In summary your and mine experience have one thing in common. Both were
able to use dvd under 10.1 and with all the changes in 10.2 this is not
possible any more.

Do you have a mix system like mine with all the HD sata and the DVD
ide?. I am wondering if the problem is related to this type of combo.
