When encountering misbehaving Disney DVDs, this is the process I use:

ddrescue -n -b 2048 /dev/dvd disney.iso disney.log
dvdbackup -i disney.iso -o disney_backup -M -n DISNEY

Then you have a VIDEO_TS directory in disney_backup and can:

mplayer -dvd-device disney_backup dvd://78

Where 78 is the title that is sniffed from my standalone DVD player.

Probably not the answer you were looking for. :)
