[OPEN] Unable to mount a DVD

Post by giorgio3364 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:48 pm

Hello, I need help, if possible.
I can not use the DVD RW on the laptop, which is an old Packard Bell, at least a decade, maybe more, with a Pentium dual core T 4200and 3Gb RAM.
From what I could understand, even though it is recognized as hardware (Optiarc DVD rw AD75805), there is no way to mount it. I tried to do a manual editing, creating a mount point, following a guide on the net, but launching the mount command tells me that the device to be mounted was not found ... If I try to load a video content from original DVD or not original using VLC I get an error message as per attached screenshot. I also attach screenshots of the mount and management options of the device, which I think are correct, as far as I can understand.
In gnome-disk the mount option is not displayed ("no device"), but the DVD is recognized as hardware (attached).
My level of competence is basic.

Any ideas on how to solve?
Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

Giorgio.

I can not attach the screens mentioned above. Do I have to be authorized to do it?

I am listening to some music from my dvd player here.
Have you tried using a music dvd.
I am guessing this is a video dvd.

You play it now with vlc... try playing with other software.

We need to analyze where the issue is.

Your dvd might be protected, broken etc...
