Sorry, but I don't see anything there that looks like a mounted DVD. You 
should see something of type 'udf', which is the DVD file system type. 
E.g. I get

/dev/hda on /media/KNIGHT_RIDER_SEASON03_DISC05 type udf 

for you it might not be /dev/hda (and the mount point will be different, 
but probabaly still under /media).

You should also see some messages in 'dmesg' e.g.

 > dmegs


UDF-fs INFO UDF (2004/29/09) Mounting volume 
'KNIGHT_RIDER_SEASON03_DISC05', timestamp 2006/02/27 20:52 (103c)
