Not recognising removable media


I recently purchased a new HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC15-p078ea. I dumped Windows 8.1 and after conquering Secure Boot, installed Ubuntu 14.10 The laptop has adequate System Memory (8 Gigs) and a 1TB internal drive. Ubuntu installed fine, but there is one problem. If I insert removable media, the internal drive starts up, but the disk isn't recognised. I have tried VLC and Parole Media Player, and a number of different DVDs and get the same problem even when the disk spins normally the media player doesn't recognise the data stream. It won't even recognise the DVD I installed Ubuntu from. Everything else is okay apart from removable media. Any ideas please?

are you talking about a store bought movie DVD

or some DATA dvd
if a data dvd
what is on it ?
things like music and video files
or
ebooks
or software
a mix of things

or VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS


if it is a store bought movie
you need libdvdread,libdvdnav,libdvdcss
or
is it a Sony BLUE-RAY
or the mpeg-la group software based hd-dvd
