The issue is that I'm trying to read some 2-3 year old "movie" DVD-Rs
and they're all at some point failing.
I thought cdparanoia was DVDparanoia. I mean, for DVDs as well. Shows
you what I know...
Audio CDs cannot be guaranteed 100% faithfully copied, for annoying
reasons. Which is why ripping them used to be fraught with danger. And
why some CDs would ruin your speakers. DVDs are just (encrypted)
video files. So, yeah, that's the reason. Not that it's not possible,
but that it's not necessary.
0. The Avatar DVDs are DRMed-up, too. I don't know how this works for
DVDs, but they won't play in Blu-Ray players, and not even in all DVD
players. Worse than pointless. Actually evil...
