I have a problem where I am unable to even mount any store purchased DVDs (both game and film). I can hear the drive trying to read the disc, but it just gives up after a few attempts.
I've looked in /var/log/messages and can't see anything that says the read was even attempted. If I put any burned DVD (backups obviously) it reads them just fine and I can watch movies and play games.
I'm not sure which info you need, but here is some:
root@grubber:~# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

I'm running Ubuntu 64bit 10.04. My drive is a Sony Optiarc AD-7200A with the latest firmware.
I have the Medibuntu repository enabled and have followed the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
I've run /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh (but I don't think that's the problem).
Any help would be great. Thanks in advance,
