if you haven't already, you might want to install libdvdcss.

You can find the instructions and the legal notices here:


If this does not fix it, maybe you could check if your DVD drive is OK (the easiest way to do so is to see if it can read other DVDs, or you could try and find a friend who has got an external USB DVD drive and see if you an read it with that)...

Hope this helps, good luck:)
