SCSI DVD not recognized by xine, xmms, etc.

I've just gotten a Sony DRX-830U external DVD writer that connects to
the USB port on my computer. I can read and write CD's using cdrecord,
but I can't play DVD movies using xine. With the internal ATAPI
CDRW/DVD-ROM xine works fine, after I edit /etc/devfs.conf a la the
handbook, so I'm guessing the problem has to do with the external drive
being a native SCSI. I've included some info below;

Xine complains that it can't find an input plugin for MRL dvd:/
I've edited my /etc/devfs.conf so that /dev/cdrom, /dev/dvd, and
/dev/rdvd all point to /dev/cd0.
Maybe someone has been down this road before and can provide a helping
hand, or at least point me in the right direction.
