One year olds have no concept of right and wrong, nor do they have any impulse control. He probably drops the dvds when you call his name because he is afraid of your tone of voice. Children this age need constant redirection and need to have things that they shouldn't have put out of reach. They sell child proof latches at the hardware store, Walmart, Target, etc.that you can attach to drawers and cupboards so children cannot open them. Gates to keep children out of rooms where there are things they should not have are also worth looking in to. You have to consistently redirect him when he gets into things that he is not supposed to.
