I recommend vlc (sudo apt-get install vlc).

Can you access the dvd? e.g., mplayer dvd://1?

Sometimes using mplayer can be a bit tricky, it's really not designed
to be a dvd player per se, but just a media/file player. So, it won't
offer you with fancy menus, while the other ones will, such as vlc, or
maybe gxine.
