    Totem fails to play dvds

    I fixed my driver issues with my graphics cards by installing Xubuntu 8.04. But now I cannont play dvds at all Totem gives me this error:

    Failed to mount <--MOVIE NAME-->

    mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: /dev/scd0 already mounted or /media/cdrom0 busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/scd0 is already mounted on /media/cdrom0.

    anybody know whats up?

    and follow the instruction for your particular version. Make sure you scroll down and add the GPG key.
