Have just tried to play a DVD on my new desktop computer using VLC Media Player.
But VLC throws an error:

DVDRead could not read-1/4 blocks at 0x01

Could someone help me out here please.

Try opening the Lite welcome screen and choose the option for drivers, firmware, third party restricted extras and install them.

Hi trinidad

I solved the problem by doing:

I opened up Synaptic and installed libdvd-pkg

I then opened a terminal and typed
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg
And that's it!
