mini DVD-R

Yes, I tried mplayer and vlc media player. But neither of these will work 
when the file system on the mini dvd-r is not mounted properly. I rebooted 
into Windows and it works. So I know that the disk and hardware are good. I 
can full sized DVD's on Ubuntu so I know that I have Ubuntu configured 

Another interesting (and confusing) fact is that this camcorder will act as 
a USB drive. In Windows it shows up as a USB CD-ROM. In Ubuntu it auto 
mounts but has the same problem as when I put the DVD-R in my DVD drive. 
The VIDEO-TS directory is a file and not a directory.
