Happened to me also.  I found 2 things....first, you have to specify
where your dvd is mounted inside the xine GUI.  Mine is /dev/cdrom1,
xine had it preset as /dev/dvd.  I changed that and then xine was able
to see it.  After you cure that problem you might run into the second
which is, it won't play encrypted dvds.  I was able to see a homemade
one I got from a friend at the job, but I couldn't see the store-bought
one.  I believe this is because of some kind of patent issues, and you
have to install separate plugins to get it to work.  I researched some
but didn't install them, and of course now I can't find the darn
bookmark :|.  Do a Google for xine dvd, I know I found it that way. 
Also, someone else might have the info on hand here.
