  • Linux Lite: 3.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core2 Duo

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel Mobile 4 series
My old Dell laptop with LL 3.6 will play some DVDs but not others.  Not sure what's happening.
Usually when I put a DVD in the CD-Rom drive the VLC media player will pop right up.
When I put other DVDs in the CD-Rom it will spin and spin.  Then I get a message that there is "no medium in drive".
Can anyone advise?

Some of your DVDs might be regional. Try:
