Do you have /dev/dvd set up for your DVD drive? Most likely, if using udev, /dev/dvd is a symbolic link for either /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd, depending upon your configuration. One item that I have tried in the past with VLC is when choosing File > Open Disc in the Customize field I have put in the actual location of the drive itself. For instance, but default it is set for me to be dvd:// within the Customize field. If I enter my actual device for my DVD drive, which id /dev/hdc, I am able to play DVD movies w/o any problems.
