Commercial DVDs are encrypted/DRM-ed.  You may need the library for 
reading them. It's in the medibuntu repository, and is called 
libdvdcss2.  I had exactly the same problem with recent shop-bought 
DVDs;  installing the lib file solved it...

Open a console and type 'alsamixer'.  Use the left/right arrow keys to 
move between the columns;  tap the 'm' key to activate (00) - or mute 
(MM), but you don't want them to be muted!! - the selected channel. 
Adjust the 'volume' of the selected channel with the up/down arrows. 
Press Esc to quit.
