I have a MSI DR4-A DVD dual cd player, but it doesnt recognize dvds (currently trying to install nwn2, but does not see the disk). Is there any way to check to see if linux installed the correct drivers?

you may need to install libdvdcss, but it might be more than that, let me know.

isn't NWN2 a Windows game?

You might need to install WINE.

Philinux, I dont think that is the problem, because even if its a windoze game, ubuntu should recognize the disc, even if it cant install it.
Also daergeth, you may need libdvdread.

Also install ubuntu-restricted-extras

and follow the medibuntu link below just to cover all the bases.
