[MPlayer-users] DVD reading issues

I recently came across the DVDs for Seinfeld Season 4. On the 2nd Disc,
there is a problem with playing titles 2 and 6, the drive hangs and
sometimes even freezes the system completely (with mplayer running in
fullscreen). The drive is an atapi DVD drive, but is connected via the
ide-scsi interface (i have a 2.4.19-Kernel and a CD-Burner, that's the
reason). Still using the Drive in IDE mode (with ide-cd Module) still
brings the same error, dmesg shows reading errors on some sectors
(around 2000000 for title 2, around 115000000 for title 6).
No use in a new kernel, since at my brother's computer with a different
drive and a 2.6.11-Kernel (or something like it) and ide-cd module the
same errors occur.
Playing the whole thing under Windows is not a problem, though.
I'm trying to exchange the disc directly at the local Sony office, and
hope they'll do the exchange, but why is there such a difference how
windows handles this and how the linux driver does the access.
This still might be the wrong forum...
