Here are the error messages:

Well it looks simply like MPlayer can't open Z: for some strange reason, I guess related to being loaded with RSJ.

Regarding RSJ... I may be wrong but, OS/2 won't "see" a DVDRW device as an
ordinary CD. Therefore, I use RSJ. I do remember reading something about getting
OS/2 to see the DVDRW device by using certain parameters on DANIATAPI but, I
haven't investigated this too closely.

OS/2 doesn't have any problem seeing my DVDRW. What version of OS/2 are you using?
Anyways here's my config.sys entries with notes
basedev daniS506.add
REM basedev=DANIDASD.DMD (this was from before I added LVM support.)
device=E:\OS2\BOOT\JJSCDROM.DMD /V /FC+ /FX+ /FM+ (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/system/drivers/cdrom/jjscdrom_20030328.zip, might need different parameters or probably none.)
rem DEVICE=E:\OS2|BOOT\OS2CDROM.DMD (from before installing JJSCDROM)
BASEDDEV=OS2ASPI.DMD /ALL (this and following lines so that the DVDRW is seen as a SCSI device for certain programs like cdrecord.
DEVICE=e:\os2\boot\aspinkk.sys (only one of these is needed, comes with various programs like DVDAO)

note that UDF is not needed but IIRC some DVD's use it. Most use the CDFS file system. I can't remember where I found UDF but I can send it to you if you need it.

By the way, I do have dvdcss.dll in the directory for MPLAYER thanks to HOBBES.

MPlayer includes its own dvdcss.dll. WarpVision, DVDAO need it.
