thanks again for thinking about that troubleing thing.
NON of the DVD's i play are hand-made, and again, they run on the same  
machine (same CD-Drive) in Windows XP just fine. all of them. and they did  
so in Warty (with OGLE and VLC).

what's about the Kernel Topic you are talking about? can you provide me  
with any link on that?
i do not see myself able to compile an own Kernel, unless i get clear and  
well written instructions - eventhough i did straight edge Turbo Pascal  
Programming 12 years ago. i do not want to make it worse!

what is:

a.) Breezy?
b.) IDE SCSI emulation for the DVD?

i just guess, that since Hoary the CD-Drive (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) does not get  
supported properly as before in Warty.
could this be the reason after all?!
