    Commercial DVDs stopped working

    I've been watching commercial DVDs on this machine for a year or so, no probs. Now commercial DVDs won't play. The drive is fine as non-encrypted DVDs, i.e. data DVDs are okay. A commercial DVD just freezes any player I use. If I run VLC in the shell and open a DVD I get this:

    Any ideas how to fix?

    This how-to will do the trick, probably (second part, but do the first part as well, just to make sure):
