Its fine, XingDVD even uses ASPI to decrypt DVDs here ;)

You need to add to the config file:

[scsi c0t0d0]
"Device" = "/dev/sg0"
[scsi c0t1d0]
"Device" = "/dev/sg1"

And make the sg* corresponding to your DVD drive world read/writeable.
(Check /proc/scsi/scsi, count starting with 0 down to your DVD drive. if it
is the first entry, it is sg0, the second is sg1 ... )

Ciao, Marcus
