Welcome to Ask Ubuntu, please have a read of the FAQ. The site works best on single questions so can you split yours into two and add some hardware details? –  Mark Rooney Feb 4 '12 at 21:37
ok, forget about the second question....priority just to get the dvd working! ;-) –  Jake Maverick Feb 9 '12 at 19:20
You really need to add some hardware details to your question - it is difficult to provide an answer when we don't know what's wrong, just asking for something to 'work' under Ubuntu is too vague a question. –  Mark Rooney Feb 9 '12 at 20:29
