Hey Ubuntu Community, and Justine

it seems im not able to solve this one, and justine is not on the community
mailing list, maybe that would be a good move

the problem was her media players closing when they open to try run a dvd,

so i asked her to run vlc from the command line using a command that worked
on my notebook
but if you look at the bottem of it, it seem her dvd device is not called
//dev/dvd like mine,

im not sure what the next move should be to solve her problem, id guess
reinstalling some pakages or something. please avise in simple talk cuz we
both quite new to linux

id like to thank the community in advance for the support.
