Agreed.  Try it again with the above.  I just tried it on my system to
test it.

Did that, here is the output

root@Innovator:/home/neo1691# apt-get update
Ign file: wheezy Release.gpg
Get:1 file: wheezy Release [18.6 kB]
Err file: wheezy/non-free amd64 Packages
Err file: wheezy/non-free amd64 Packages
  File not found
W: Failed to fetch file:/media/dvd1-mountpoint/dists/wheezy/non-free/binary-amd64/Packages  File not found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
