I took a look at my copy of "Sphere" on both DVD drives and am somewhat
confused. On both drives I get the IO errors when I cat the files to null,
yet both systems seem to be able to play the movie using ogle. Does this
make sense to you? Is there something different about the media or the way
data is stored on comercial movie DVD's that would explain this behaviour?
