I can not access a DVD disk on 16.04, thru 17.10 installs. I have been here before with 16.02 but was able to get it to work. I have followed all the recommended procedures for this well known issue and have gained nothing,
With the same drive, I can put in a data disk and it works immediately every time. The system sees the drive. But when I put in a DVD - nothing. VLC + Kodi + all other dvd reading software can not open the file system..
Like I said earlier... This same computer and same drive worked perfectly under 16.02.x
Codecs - all installed
Are all installed successfully
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg - tells me it is already installed.
/usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh` - does not exist in these ubuntu versions and can not be executed.
I have hooked up external dvd drives - same issue. They read data but not DVDs
Am I missing something?
