Lightbulb DVD file read error

Hello to all,
I tried to play my DVD in VLC but nothing happend. So I tried to read this DVD and I discovered that files from this DVD couldn't be read. When I tried to read this DVD in Windows VLC, no problem was found (DVD plays well) ... Is it possible that unix DVD reader driver is not correct (doesn't support all file system types reading)? Or does this problem depend on my DVD mechanic (Samsung DRW SH-S203N, 20xD ±R, SATA, LightS)?
Thank you for your answers and ideas!

Is libdvdcss installed? You could find out with pkg_info

So maybe this is related to some new kind of protection. There are certain patches for libdvdread, but they aren't legal in most countries, especially the USA.

It's possible that this is a new kind of protection but explain me why can I read the same DVD in Windows with no problems ... I think now the physical DVD reading.

Because Windows has got the technology. The decss hack is reverse engineering, so we need a fix for every change and someone who is able to do so.

A "new kind of protection" is absurd, such a thing would break compatibility with legacy DVD players, people would be suing if their old DVD player starting having problems.

The encryption format is CSS and it has been circumvented.

Install libdvd and be done with it, you're legally aloud to watch a movie on your computer.

Damn Americans...

A note, libdvd is actually called "libdvdcss", some package management systems just call it libdvd (Like OpenBSD..)
