VLC only plays half a DVD

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, This is my first proper post here, and I'm not even sure if this is the right place for my question. If it isn't, I apologise. I have the latest version of Ubuntu on my PC and I've noticed that VLC only plays half the disk; its the same whether its commercial stuff, or items I have burned to disk myself from off-air broadcasts. The menu items are showing but when I click on them, those recorded more than half way into the disk can't be played. Can anyone suggest a work-around, or what I can do? Many thanks :) (HowTos)
