mario909: Try this...

sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg

When everything is installed, run following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Greets!  :wink:

Hello, when I ran that in the terminal it says that its already installed....but thanks for trying.

 

Well it seems its not my Operating System that is the problem. I think its just my USB dvd burner being a pain. Maybe in the future I will buy me a better USB dvd burner and see if it works. 

 

Again, thank you guys.

Mario - your call to spend the dough, you are the end user, but if you type in and enter (at Terminal)

lshw

... you will get a warning about "super-user" which means use of "sudo" (which would give you a HUGE amount of output), but I have included mine below just click Spoiler. If you take the time to scroll down, I have highlighted for you where it shows details of my dvd burner.

 

Spoiler

 

If you copy and paste that part for us, we can always check out any known problems for that model and brand?

 

Other than that, good luck and enjoy your Linux :thumbup2:

Just to be sure... Did you run the second command after that?  :unsure:
