I just read your original thread again. It seems like there is no device
"/dev/dvd" which may be missing because your old dvd player was assigned
to that device. Now your new dvd player is probably "/dev/dvd1" and the
programs don't look there. But I have no idea why it works after startup
with the dvd in the drive.
Now let's see: What is the output of
ls -l /dev/scd* /dev/dvd*
in a terminal? Make sure that the xine parameters of kaffeine point to
the appropriate device which you should see with the command above.
However I can't tell you what to do with Gnome.
BTW: The assignment for the dvd device is done in the file
"/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules". You can safely remove the
entries for your old and new drive, they will be rewritten on the next
