That was the bit I was missing: regionset was unknown to me.

For me, too. After some hours, I think I found an error message in some log,
maybe dmesg or so.

I installed
it, put the original drive back, ran regionset on it, changed the region
code from "2" to "1", everything started working.

Cool! But please keep in mind that often you can change the code only five
times. Then it sticks and you really have to buy a new DVD drive if you don't
like the code set.

I got curious. I downloaded and installed "regionset" to see how my drive is
set:

Telcontar:~ # regionset
Current drive parameters for /dev/dvd:
RPC Type: Phase II (Hardware)
RPC Status: no region code set (bitmask=0xFF)
Vendor may reset the RPC 4 times
User is allowed change the region setting 5 times
Would you like to change the region setting for this drive? [y/n]: n

So I loaded a commercial DVD into my drive, which is an ASUS blueray writer,
and first tried with Xine. If I used "xine /dev/dvd" it tried but failed. On a
second attempt I could see the menu in a very broken shape. If I entered "xine"
and then pressed the DVD button, it crashed.

Then I tried with VLC, and it played the DVD just fine... with no region set.

Finally, I uninstalled regionset to avoid setting region by mistake.
