I have quite a few original DVDs of the American movies (George of the Jungle, Air Force One,
Terminator 2, Stuart Little, "A Triumph!"). I mount the DVD with UDF (0.9.4.1 on kernel
2.2.19/2.4.9). I can browse the directory tree. However, it fails to read or copy the VOB files. But
other files like .IFO and .BUP can be read and copies. And this is really strange!
For some other original (or pirated) DVDs of Hongkong and China, everything works fine! So I'm sure
the DVD-drive, the kernel, and the UDF module all work in this case. On Windows98/2000 and
standalone DVD players all those American DVDs can be played without any problem. The
DVD-drives are all non-RPC one.
So do you all have any idea about what is the cause of the problem? Is it those disc manufacturers
use some special format other than the standard UDF? Or is it a bug of the linux UDF??
Here is an error log when copying one of the VOB from the "Stuart Little" DVD.
#> cp /mnt/cdrom/VIDEO_TS/VTS_24_1.VOB /tmp/. &>/tmp/dvd.err.log

Thanks for your help!
