I don't know whether it's an Ubuntu issue, but I suspect not.  I think that 
most times I've heard of it the reporter has mentioned owning a combo drive 
like yours.  If you are able to put a standard DVD drive in I suspect the 
problem will go away.  It certainly is fine on every system I've handled, but 
I've never had a combo drive.
