I wonder if this is similar to a problem I just noticed. I can open CDs in my CD\DVD-RW drives (I have two different brands) and use the files contained therein, but I can only open DVDs. If I try to open a file or copy it to my desktop it gives me an error. From looking on the Ubuntu forum it seems that it may (not sure yet) have something to do with a setting in fstab. Some people have reported that if you see:
ISO9660, UDF (or something like this) in the line that has your CD\DVD-RW, then the DVD portion doesn't work right. Some claim that if you change this to just say auto then it does work. I have yet to try this since it is a problem I just realized last night. Supposedly the comma is not a valid thing to have in the line so only the ISO part is recognized. I also read on the Ubuntu forum that putting auto could potentially cause some problem in burning, but it was vague and mostly theoretical. Anyway... not sure if this is something that other people have been seeing, but when I search for DVD not working in google or the forum I get a lot of junk and have to sift heavily.
Anyway... could be worth testing... before you make any changes look on the ubuntu forum
