So it fails with a specific DVD? This is an entirely different case.
Since no output of the type

This DVD has n titles.
This title has n chapters.
This title has n angles.

appears, it seems there is a problem altogether with this DVD? Is it an 
original purchased one or a self-made? If it is a self-made: does it 
work on other software players (under linux, or maybe even under 
windows?) if it is an original purchased: is it possible that a new copy 
protection is used for this DVD. Newer Sony titles (formerly known as 
Columbia) use a new form of copy protection known as ARccOS which makes 
mplayer's life a bit sad, but I still managed to read the infos at least...
