    Unable to play DVD

    I have just installed utopic into a new partition (keeping my old trusty /home directory). Just about everything is working beautifully, but I cannot mount or play DVDs.
    Unencrypted DVDs are reading OK
    I have done libdvdread4 and install-css.sh but I am still getting "Add. Sense: Read of scrambled sector without authentication" in syslog.
    I have the same problem for both my built-in DVD and an external USB DVD drive, and different DVDs
    Code:
    3.16.0-20-generic #27-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 1 17:35:12 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    dpkg -l libdvdread4 libdvdnav4 libdvdcss2
    ii  libdvdcss2                         1.2.13-0               amd64                  library designed for accessing DVDs
    ii  libdvdnav4:amd64                   5.0.1-1                amd64                  DVD navigation library
    ii  libdvdread4:amd64                  5.0.0-1ubuntu1         amd64                  library for reading DVDs
    Any suggestions?

    Have you installed Ubuntu restricted extras from the repositories?

    Yep, forgot to mention that one. I've also rebooted.

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
    I know you already have libdvdread4 installed and so did I but I couldn't play a DVD until I entered that command in terminal.
    That should be all you need to do.

    lol, ya know my dvd player hasn't played cds or dvds for ages now...can't remember when exactly it started, but i never really use it so never thought about it much. i thought it was possibly hardware related, until i started the machine in windows one day and discovered that the drive itself was in fact working.

    anyways saw this thread today and read Cavsfan's suggested command, ran it and to my amazement...i once again have a functioning optical drive!!

    thank you brother!

    Is there any way to race what's being called when a DVD is inserted?

    Did You install libdvdcss2 manually as suggested?

    Yep.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -l libdvdcss2
    ii  libdvdcss2                         1.2.13-0               amd64                  library designed for accessing DVDs
    Tried that. I used to have udev persistence rules. I can't see that that would make any difference.

    It did not work until I entered that command. Then it worked just like my DVD player by my TV.

    Now if there was only a way to play Blu-ray DVDs, I'd be happy. I've tried several different methods, and all I get is:
