Looks like it can't access the vlc module to play DVDs, not the actual
drive. I agree with William's advice below - vlc needs libdvdcss2.

If you download this in firefox, just double click on it and the gdebi
installer should install it for you. Otherwise, if you want the other
medibuntu packages like Skype, Google Earth, Acrobat Reader, and
w32codecs for watching windows-format videos, add the repository as
described on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu.
