[Mplayer-users] What am I doing wrong?

Hello World!

I just got my mplayer up and running on my Suse 7.2. I can play a lot of my 
mpg's, avi's and stuff, but I can't play any of my dvd's. I installed css, 
and I'm sure it's not the problem. It seems that no matter what I do, I can't 
get it to read from the dvd-drive.

Here's what I did:

mbs03 at paladin:~ > mplayer -vo x11 -vm -dvd /dev/dvd /dvd/video_ts/vts_01_1.vob
MPlayer 0.17a-IdegCounter  (C) 2000-2001 Arpad Gereoffy <arpi at thot.banki.hu>
Reading config file: /etc/mplayer.conf: No such file or directory
Reading config file: /home/mbs03/.mplayer/config
Reading /home/mbs03/.mplayer/codecs.conf: 15 audio & 26 video codecs
Font /home/mbs03/.mplayer/font/font.desc loaded successfully! (140 chars)
DVD: cannot open DVD device "/dev/dvd".

I checked up on that "/dev/dvd"-thing. The file is a link to "/dev/sr1". My 
dvd-drive is a pioneer-scsi-drive on a adaptec 2940 along with a dvd-ram and 
a plextor cd-burner.  I guessed that sr1 might had something to do with 
scsi-id. I confirmed that when I read the /var/log/boot.msg.

But now I'm out of any ideas. Anyone of you have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
