this used to work:

Install the libdvdread4 package (no need to add third party repositories)
via Synaptic or command line:
sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
Then open a terminal window and execute:
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/

havent tried this in a long time tough, so i have no id if it still works
