Looks like your drives are hdc and hdd.
First find out which is which.
A drive should open, do the same with the other drive.
Now check the mount points actually exist. Does /media contain cdrom0
and cdrom1? If not create them (sudo mkdir -p /media/cdrom0
Insert a DVD and type:
mount /media/cdrom0 (for hdc)
mount /media/cdrom1 (for hdd)
(don't type the things in brackets ;))
Any error messages?
What kind of DVDs are you trying? Data or Video?
Also what version of Ubuntu are you using?
(Old versions seem to use /dev/hd? for Optical drives connected as IDE)
Computers are like air conditioners. Both stop working, if you open windows.
