View Full Version : [all variants] External DVD drive won't play DVDs

August 20th, 2009, 05:56 PM
I have an external DVD drive (USB) connected to a computer running a fairly new Linux Mint installation.

I can read from the drive - data discs give me no problems. Playing a DVD film however is different. The computer detects the disc and can navigate through it, but is unable to play the disc.

I can play movies from the drive when I connect it to a different computer also running Linux Mint.

I don't think it is the codecs - I believe I have them all installed.

Any suggestions?
