I get this error message.

An Error occurred.

Could not open location you might not have permission to open the file.

Works fine in windows!!!

I think it's the security crap they put on the disks.
Is there a codec I can download to solve this???

Remember, you're not using Windows. Just because it works there, means nothing about why it does or doesn't work in Linux.

A DVD movie? yes, you need to install libdvdcss... then, ditch totem, and use VLC.. way better. Assuming you're still using Ubuntu..

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

Add the medibuntu repository following the instructions above(make sure you add the GPG key also, otherwise apt will constantly complain about a possible security risk form an unverified repository)...

After you've done the above, follow the instructions to install libdvdcss2 (sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2)... you *should* be able to open a DVD in totem now, although there was a problem w/ it not recognizing when the codecs were installed(i think its been fixed, but I'm not sure because I don't use Totem). Regardless, if you can't play it in totem, simply run sudo apt-get install vlc. After which, you should have no prob watching a DVD in vlc.
