    Can you read a data dvd? If yes, did you install the required codecs to watch a movie dvd?

    You could try going to System Settings>Details>Removable Media and seeing what setting you have for Select How Media Should be Handled. During much of the development cycle of 13.04 I could not even get an audio CD to play let alone burn an ISO. But it got fixed by release date. The fact that you are able to play audio CDs suggests that you should be able to play a video DVD with the right codecs and burn an ISO image.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
