Enter the file system of the dvd, and open VIDEO_TS.IFO with VLC as standard.

yes, it says that but it always send an error message, sorry for taking to long to answer.

When you go Menu, Open Disc, does it show your Disc device as /dev/sr0:

Hi, I'm new to both linux and linux lite, I've been trying to read a DVD but VLC keeps showing this message:

--- Code: ---VLC media player 3.0.4 Vetinari (revision 3.0.4-0-gf615db6332)
[000055b6ce684570] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

[00007fc1700015f0] filesystem stream error: cannot open file /home/ricardo/dvd (No such file or directory)

--- End code ---

So I read some of the post down here and execute the inxi -d command and the output was the following:

--- Code: ---Drives:    HDD Total Size: 500.1GB (3.6% used)
           ID-1: /dev/sda model: TOSHIBA_MK5076GS size: 500.1GB
           Optical-1: /dev/sr0 model: hp CDDVDW TS-L633R
           dev-links: cdrom,cdrw,dvd,dvdrw
           Features: speed: 24x multisession: yes
           audio: yes dvd: yes rw: cd-r,cd-rw,dvd-r,dvd-ram

--- End code ---

and the wodim --devices command says the following:

--- Code: ---wodim: No such file or directory.
Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

--- End code ---

also run the wodim -checkdrive:

--- Code: ---Device was not specified. Trying to find an appropriate drive...
Detected CD-R drive: /dev/cdrw
Using /dev/cdrom of unknown capabilities
Device type    : Removable CD-ROM
Version        : 5
Response Format: 2
Capabilities   :
Vendor_info    : 'hp      '
Identification : 'CDDVDW TS-L633R '
Revision       : '0400'
Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
wodim: Cannot load media with this drive!
wodim: Try to load media by hand.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc   CD-R/CD-RW driver (mmc_cdr).
Supported modes: TAO PACKET SAO SAO/R96P SAO/R96R RAW/R16 RAW/R96P RAW/R96R

--- End code ---

I don't really know how to access directly by hand to the device or solve this issue, everything else is working fine, i have the "mount" option checked in the settings manager, i also tried installing the Restricted Extras.

Final output, i promise, this time was sudo lshw -C disk :

--- Code: ---*-cdrom
       description: DVD-RAM writer
       product: CDDVDW TS-L633R
       vendor: hp

       logical name: /dev/dvdrw
       logical name: /dev/sr0
       version: 0400
       capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r dvd-ram
       configuration: ansiversion=5 status=open
--- End code ---
So, thanks in advance for your patience and hope i can solve this.
