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.
