Asked by Tim Benjamin

Hi all,

very simply I can't get anything to run on my cd player on my laptop. I put in a DVD and it reads it, but when i get it to run in VLC - nothing happens, and when I use the ubuntu movie player I get error message that says "could not read from resource"

can anyone help me?
