Hi,

I'm pretty new with ubuntu and things don't start well...
I've installed it perfectly fine, now I can't read the content of legal DVD's that I've previously burned on windows.
Original DVD's and CD's works perfectly fine.
Is there an issue with DVD+R and DVD-RAM in ubuntu?
I've searched the web for 8 hours without an answer.
If you want me to show you my "configs" tell me the command.
i.e. sudo something something

Thanks in advance!

Have you gotten all the updates for 9.10?

That "burned in Windows" thing kinda caught my eye. Microsoft is just swooning over DRM. I'm wondering if, when you burned those discs, Windows put a digital "tag" on them so that you could only use them in your Windows install.

Judging from the link you posted, there's no reason your discs won't play unless I didn't notice the lack of something.

WOW, that would be a real pain if windows did something like that!
N00b question: How do I do updates?
If it's a case of a DRM, is there hope or my DVD's are good for the recycle bin?

System> Admin.> Update Manager.

If it is DRM, I have no idea if it's possible to circumvent it or not. Probably so.

Well thanks for your help everyone.
I'll try installing mandriva to see if the problem persist, if so i'll go to a friend house, who has win xp, to see if I can read my files.

Thank you!

I can't find any tweak guides for chrome browser newer than mid 2008. Any reason you don't use Firefox? It will probably benchmark better than chrome. I'm using the Swiftfox version and it's quite peppy.

It's been some time since I used Peacekeeper so I can't really tell you what the numbers mean. I think I'll do it now and post my results too.


Curses! Wrong thread.

Install vlc. It has drivers and support for 99% of the file types out on the web. If it still does not work let us know whats on the disks. If its copied dvd's you need to install Ubuntu Extras

try this if you want.


sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

I think I've found the problem/solution, I haven't tried it yet because it's getting late.
I was not trying to read a DVD burn movie, I wasn't able to see the DVD contents, all my .mp3, open office documents, etc...
It seems MS did a nasty thing with vista.
I don't fully understand the problem, but it seems it has to do with UDF2.5 thingy.
The solution I think: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1272410&highlight=udf+vista
So in my opinion, this issue should have a thread at the top of the forum with blinking lights.
Because from what I saw, I'm not the only one with this problem...

Thank you fellow ubuntunians (if that's a word...) ;)

EDIT: I also saw on an other forum about using ISOBUSTER with WINE.

Sounds like I had the right general idea with that DRM digital tag.


Thank you fellow ubuntunians (if that's a word...);)

It is now.

Makes us ound like we're from another planet. Run for your lives, the Ubuntunians are invading! They'll eat our women and ravish our brains!

LOL!
Yes you were right, I can confirm that it works with Wine & Isobuster Free version.
Thank again!
