DVD's not mounting.

 
Nothing happens when inserting DVD. Most Google search results in posts from years ago. Hoping for something new that I missed. I’ve been at it for a day and a half so I’m sure i missed something in my info below. Other dvd’s have had the same results.

Playback failure:
DVDRead could not open the disc “/dev/sr0”.
Your input can’t be opened:

Checked “Disks”, Drive shows but shows “No media”
Checked “File Manager” – DVD not present.
