I have an ongoing problem when trying to access my dvds. I am on Lubuntu 18.04LTS. This error message keeps popping up:

Can't open disc /dev/sr0(I18N_ARGUMENT_MISSING)!

Sometimes this is resolvable by opening and closing the DVD drive. Other times, I have to entirely shut down the system and reboot for this to resolve. It's maddening, and I have scoured the internet for answers but haven't found much. Am I the only one with this issue?!

It's NOT the DVD itself, at least, not often. In rare cases this same message pops up when a DVD is damaged. But usually, after repeated attempts to get it to work, I shut down the system (which I hate doing, Linux shouldn't need that!) and reboot and bingo, that solves it.

I would love to know what is causing this and how to resolve it without rebooting. Anyone know?
