I have no problem playing DVDs on my EPIA M10000 using xine or mplayer. As
was suggested earlier, you should make sure the DMA is enabled for the DVD
drive. Run hdparm to check this, e.g.:
# hdparm /dev/hdc
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
if using_dma is not set to 1, then use
hdparm -d1 /dev/hdc
to enable it.
