sometimes physically cleaning the drive, esp. lens, can help.

Sorry, meant to mention am running Debian using KDE desktop; really need the libdvdcss feed to correct problem with VLC and 'Dragon Player.' Already have the 'libdvdread4' thread suggested at Ubuntu site. However, need to know how to insert the code libdvdcss (or begin an entry) using a terminal. Desperately need a course; hopefully, I'll find a tutorial here or somewhere that will help we 'seniors' battling cognitive memory 'glitches' or 'rusty rails' in our brains. Any direction you may have to offer will be greatly appreciated.

Libdvdcss is in the repo's.

Btw if you're trying not to replace hdd you need to take it apart & clean the lens, I use alcohol to clean mine, but maybe someone else might recommend something else

What "repo's?"

Haven't a clue what you're talking about with "hdd" what that is or why I'd need my lens cleaned. This thread makes little sense.

Maybe creating a new thread would be better. just ask there in the new thread the specific question you got.
Check below some information regarding the your previous questions

repository
rəˈpzəˌtrē/
noun
a place, building, or receptacle where things are or may be stored.
"a deep repository for nuclear waste"
a place in which something, especially a natural resource, has accumulated or where it is found in significant quantities.
"accessible repositories of water"
COMPUTING
a central location in which data is stored and managed.
"the metadata will be aggregated in a repository"
In short the repository of a Linux distribution is like its own app store.

Quote:
A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating disks (platters) coated with magnetic material.[2] An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating disks (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.
