Put the DVD in. Navigate to /dev/dvd. Are your files there?

Nope
I am not surprised you are frustrated. Sorry I cannot be of help.
...& I'll be sticking with kubuntu!

Have you tried to find a file on the DVD with the find command? It definitively must find it if you are logged in as root and the DVD is mounted somewhere...

colucix's idea was a good one.
Please try the following, when the DVD is in your drive:
Code:
find / -name nameofafileonyourDVD -print
You might as well do this as root, or you'll get a long list of "Permission denied" errors.
Wait until the command finishes (may take some time!)
Somewhere (hopefully in /dev/*) you should see the full path to your file, and thereby be able to access it.

Code:
find: /media/SYSTEM_BACKUP: Input/output error
Please, look at the very first line of your output. What is this? Have you mounted any other filesystem in the meanwhile? Or is it the DVD you are looking for?
