It shows the messages for the last DVD that actually mounted.  Says
there are four invalid keys on the DVD...

The disks eject.  (Well, I had to use eject /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1, but
they both come out.)

No.  However they do not show as mounted, either.

I'm trying again now that I've ejected them.

I'll see what happens when I try the DVD drive - hopefully it will be that easy.

Many thanks!
