    CD mounts but DVD does not mount

    I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS through .iso image on DVD drive.
    Problem:- if a CD is loaded in the drive, it mounts correctly. But DVD does not mount.
    I am SURE that it is a DVD drive.
    On WinXP, I have burned a DVD yesterday.

    dmesg | grep sr0

    gives output as --

    [ 3.771706] sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
    [ 3.772001] sr 5:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0

    I also installed libdvdnav4, but no success.
    "apt-get install libdvdnav4"

    sudo mount /dev/sr0 /cdrom

    gives output as --
    mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

    Still, it is not mounted. (I mean, I can neither access it through file-manager, nor throu' terminal.

    Can anybody pl. suggest a remedy?
