I tried mplayer, vlc and ogle and experienced the same symptoms like
when this DVD drive was in virgin state (with no region-code set) and
when I tried to play normal region 2 DVD, which means:

Hmm, my home is currently FreeBSD-only. :-) But I managed to try it and
- -- yes, it works. Strange. In the light of your post about LITE-ON
DVDRW LH-20A1S 9L08, is it possible that DVD drive causes all these
