You could try ensuring Xine is installed.. VLC is handy to have but doesn't run everything...

Secondly, ensure you have the required codecs from Gstreamer... libdvdcss2 is needed for playing dvd along with a few others, that other members of the forum may remember...

Mint is usually quite good with media, so you may just be missing something like a lib file or a codec...
