So, I took your suggestion, and suddenly, it recognises the DVD I inserted. 
I was very surprised by this.

So, the rip seems to have succeeded, but it leaves me with .ISO files.  I
ripped a Monk DVD, 4 episodes, and I got 4 .ISO files.  I don't know what do
to with an .ISO file in myth.  Is mplayer supposed to know what to do with an
.ISO file?  When I menu over to play the ripped video, mplayer seems to abort
immediately.  I'll check the archives and google for help with this.

Thanks for the tip about removing and inserting the DVD.
